  • 1kg Potatoes, peeled & cut into big chunks
  • 2 large red onions, peeled & cut into big chunks
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil, Salt & Pepper
  • 1 litre Hot vegetable stock, 300 ml Milk
  • a small handful of fresh sage leaves
  • a little Parmesan Cheese
  • a few extra sage leaves

Follow these steps

  • Pre-heat the oven to 200degC.
  • Place the chunks of potato & red onion into a large roasting tin – drizzle over the olive oil. Season with salt & pepper. Place in the pre-heated oven for about 15 minutes then remove and turn the vegetables to ensure even cooking, Scatter over the sage leaves then return to the oven for a further 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and starting to brown.
  • Remove from the oven and tip the contents of the roasting tin into a large saucepan.
  • Add the hot stock to the pan then bring to the boil and simmer gently for 15 minutes. Liquidise in batches or blend in the pan to a smooth consistency using a stick blender. Stir in the milk and bring back to a gentle simmer. Check the seasoning.
