Step 1

Cut potatoes into small pieces and cook in salted water, with the onion and the garlic.

Step 2

In a heavy pan melt the butter over low heat. Stir in flour and cook until bubbly. Slowly add half of the milk (2 cups). Add hot cooked potatoes and onion/garlic mixture.

Step 3

Use a potato masher to break up potatoes a bit. Add the rest of the milk and the salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until hot. If it is not thick enough, shake 1 tablespoon of flour with 1/2 cup cold milk and add to the soup, stir frequently.

Step 4

Garnish with a sprinkle of dried parsley.
