Weeknight Cream of Potato Soup
In a small pan, sauté soup mix in a little olive oil until beginning to brown, stirring frequently. Add garlic and thyme; cook 1 min. or until fragrant. Process mixture in a blender with chicken stock until smooth. In a large saucepan, add stock mixture to mashed potatoes; bring to a boil. Cook 1 min.; stir in half-and-half and cheese. Reduce heat so soup does not return to a boil; heat through. Garnish with chives, a drizzle of Kowalski’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil and salt and pepper to taste.
Good to Know: Find Kowalski's Soup Mix in the Produce Department with other prepared produce. Or you can use the same amount of finely chopped mixed vegetables, such as carrots, celery and onions.
