Finishing the potato soup 25 minutes

Heat a dash of sunflower oil or olive oil in a large saucepan and sauté the garlic, onion and orange peel for a minute. Add the potato wedges along with the sliced leek and cook for a few more minutes.

Pour the beef stock, along with the whole milk, into the pan and bring to a gentle boil. Remove the orange peel from the pan once the potatoes are cooked through.

You can check whether the potatoes are done by pricking them with a fork. If the fork go in easily, then the potatoes are done.

Potato Soup: frequently asked questions

Can I make this potato soup vegetarian?

Yes, you can easily make this potato soup vegetarian. Replace the beef or chicken stock with vegetable stock, and use a vegetarian substitute for the Parmesan cheese.

Why isn't Parmesan cheese suitable for vegetarians?

Traditional Parmesan cheese is made using animal rennet, extracted from the stomach lining of calves. Vegetarian-friendly Parmesan-style hard cheeses are available which taste very similar to genuine Parmesan. They can be used in this recipe.
