A warming and delicious garlic soup made with four simple ingredients. It's smooth, comforting, and packed with flavors, which makes it perfect for chilly nights! Naturally vegan and gluten-free.
Peel and cut your potato into cubes. Peel garlic and chop roughly.
Heat a medium saucepan on medium-high heat. Once hot, add olive oil and garlic. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and sautée for 3 to 4 minutes or until fragrant, stirring frequently.
Add white miso paste (if using), cubed potato, and sautée for 2 minutes or until the bottom of the saucepan becomes slightly browned and sticky.
Add vegetable broth (or water), drained white beans, and stir well to combine.
Bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower the heat to simmer and cover.
Cook for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are very soft to the touch.
Use an immersion blender to blend the soup until smooth. You can also use a blender, transfer the soup to your blender, cover and place a towel over the top of the lid before mixing to avoid accidents. Blend and transfer back into the pot.
Continue cooking over medium-low heat for 5 minutes and taste test and adjust seasonings as needed.
