Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C). Place bread pieces on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, tossing to combine. Bake until deep golden brown, about 9 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

Step 2

Place butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until translucent and softened, about 3 minutes.

Add broth and bring to a boil over high heat. Add potatoes, salt and pepper.

Step 4

Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.

Step 5

Place croutons and cheese cubes in soup bowls. Ladle soup on top. Sprinkle with dill and parsley and serve.

Wow, what a fantastic soup. It always amazes me when a recipe is so straightforward to make and calls for relatively few ingredients, and then is so completely delicious. I made half a batch for two of us, using pumpernickel bread and beef stock. I thought garlic and beef stock went together more than garlic and chicken stock. The dill and parsley were perfect garnishes. I hope you get to go on a Vikings cruise.
