  • 12 potatoes, peeled and cubed

  • 12 onions, chopped

  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 6 tablespoons butter

  • 9 cups milk

  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large pot over high heat, combine potatoes, onions, and water to cover and boil for 30 to 45 minutes, or until tender. Drain the mixture, reserving 3 cups of the cooking liquid. Transfer this in small batches to a blender and puree until smooth.

  2. In the same pot over medium heat, combine flour and butter, stirring together well, to form a roux. Slowly add milk, stirring constantly, until well blended. Reduce heat to low and add the puréed potato mixture. Let simmer, stirring occasionally for 5 to 10 minutes. Add parsley and season with salt and pepper to taste.
