Cream of Green Garlic and Potato Soup
September 23, 2012

I used this recipe as an inspiration for using the remnants of what was in the freezer and pantry. Thanks for the ideas Chef John! Instead of prosciutto I used smoked sausage. The green garlic was replaced by garlic scapes which were in the freezer. Chicken stock was traded for stock that was saved from cooking pork ribs in the slow cooker. A few stray potatoes were rescued from the garden. I added one chopped onion and sauted it in oil with the smoked sausage. No need to add any spices since it was all in the broth and sausage. Then proceeded to follow the directions in the recipe, replacing cream with evaporated milk for a lower fat content. The result: amazingly fabulous! Sounds like a new recipe! And costs pennies to make. Very filling too.
