Dutch Potato Soup

Thanks goes to Bridgette for sending me this recipe. Its not soup time but i LOVE soup!!
The simplest things in life are almost always the best. This the the idea behind this soup that is one of the simplest but tastiest soups. It is also very versatile as you can adjust the taste with the addition of ingredients like celery,leeks, rosemary, thyme. Different types of cheese will also vary the final result. This is not a fancy soup but rather a base which can be added to to get an individual result.

6 medium potatoea
2 medium onions
2 cloves of garlic
2 cups butter
1 /4 cup flour
1 /2 tsp powdered mustard
4 cups of chicken broth
1 /4 cup of fresh cream
1 /2 cup grated cheese
Fresh parsley

Peel the potatoes, wash and dice
Chop the onions
Grate the garlic
In a pot, put in 2 tsp butter and cook the onions and garlic for about 5 mins or until the onions are translucent.
Add the mustard and the flour.
Cook for about a minute, stirring all the time.
Add the potatoes to the onions and pour in the broth.
Cook for about 20 mins.
Once the potatoes are cooked, use a hand mixer (braun or bamix) to mash them.
Add the cream and the grated cheese.
Keep mixing until the cheese has melted.
Season to taste - you can also add a dash of grated nutmeg
Garnish with some parsley and freshly ground pepper.
