Cream of Onion Potato Soup

Cream_Onion_Potato_Soup_1 I love the sweet taste of onions in curries and veggies. Here is Cream of Onion Potato Soup prepared with more onions and one potato. This is for those who love the flavor and taste of onions. This soup tastes little sweet and is more creamy. I used some low fat milk and no cream is used. I used the spring onion strings to garnish the soup. As this soup is prepared in microwave, the flavor is amazing. For the given quantity of ingredients, I got 7 to 8 cups of soup.

I did the whole cooking in microwave oven in 100% power.

Microwave Cooking time: 8 minutes


  • Onions – 4 no
  • Potato – 1 noCream_Onion_Potato_Soup_2
  • Milk – 1 to 1½ cups

  • Ajinomoto – tea spoon (optional)

  • Ginger – small piece

  • Corn flour – 1 tea spoon
  • Salt – ¼ tea spoon

  • Now mix corn flour with milk in a micro safe bowl and cook in open for 1 minute in 100 % micro power; stirring in between is necessary otherwise, lumps will form; you can see the mixer is thick now.

  • Add chopped spring onions, freshly ground pepper powder when the soup is hot.
  • Aromatic creamy Onion Potato Soup is ready in 8 minutes of microwave cooking time. Serve hot. As we add chopped spring onions last, it will be crunchy.



  • You can use white onions also.
  • Even you can replace onions with big bulbs of spring onion.
