1 large onion, finely chopped

2 tbsp butter

olive oil, for frying and drizzling

600g potatoes, peeled and finely chopped

3-4 sprigs thyme, leaves only

Heat the oil and butter together in a large saucepan. Add the onions and fry until they become tender without browning.

Tip in the potatoes and most of the thyme leaves. Fry the potatoes until semi-transparent. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Add the broth and let it stew until the potatoes become soft.

Allow the soup to cool down a bit. Mash everything using a hand blender.

Warm the soup again then pour into 2 or 3 bowls. Top with a trickle of olive oil and the rest of thyme leaves. Serve while hot.
