This is a really good base for a soup, and I was surprised that with so few ingredients it had such a good flavor. I used red potatoes (leaving the skins on for a nice color), roasted the garlic with them, and sprinkled some oregano and salt in with the pepper and olive oil. I used red onions also. At first, the soup was quite a bit thinner than I normally like my cream soups, but I was able to solve this by simply adding in the potatoes I had reserved. For this I just used a hand mixer (not a blender) to keep some of the chunks in tact, and garnished with shredded parmesan and crumbled bacon. Overall, I was pleased. I'm even looking forward to leftovers for lunch.
