Green Onion Soup

My father gave me a bunch of green onions from his garden.  I knew I wouldn't be able to eat them all before they went bad, so I chopped them up and froze most of it for later use.  I saved the white bottom sections of the onions for this recipe.   

This is a variation of a leek soup.  The recipes I looked up actually asked for the sour cream to be blended into the soup.  But I forgot to do that.  So I just put a dollop in the middle and it was still delicious that way.

  •  1 lb. potatoes, diced
  • 1 1/2 cup green onions, chopped
  • 4 cups water
  • 4 teaspoons chicken bouillon
  • 2 Teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • dollop of sour cream
  1.  Prepare ingredients as described above (dice, chop).
  2. Add all ingredients, except sour cream, to slow cooker.
  3. Cook on low for 8 hours.
  4. Transfer soup to blender and blend until smooth.
  5. Add a dollop of sour cream to middle of soup and sprinkle with extra thyme if you want to be fancy.
  6. Enjoy!
