Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
¼ cup Olive oil
¼ cup Unsalted butter
6 \N Thinly-sliced yellow onions
4 \N Sprigs parsley
2 \N Sprigs thyme
4 \N Black peppercorns
2 \N Bay leaves
22 \N Peeled Russet potatoes; cut 3/4\" cubes
2 tablespoons Coarse salt

6 bunches Escarole; coarsely chopped
\N \N Coarse salt

Heat oil and butter in a large stockpot set over medium heat. Add sliced onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare a bouquet garni: Tie parsley, thyme, peppercorns, and bay leaves in a piece of cheesecloth. Add sachet to pot. Add potatoes, salt, and stock. Bring to a boil (this will take about 1 hour). Reduce heat to simmer, and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat.

Remove bouquet garni. Puree soup in stockpot with a hand blender. Bring soup back to a simmer over medium-high heat. Stir in escarole, and cook until the greens are wilted, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Makes 22 quarts.
