Directions

  1. Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion, garlic, thyme and salt about 5 min., until onions are softened and lightly browned. Stir in broth and potatoes; bring to a simmer.

  2. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, 20 min. until potatoes are fully cooked and breaking apart. Stir in lettuce leaves. Cook 1 to 2 min. until lettuce leaves are tender.

  3. Using a hand-blender, purée until smooth. Stir in lemon juice. Serve hot or cold. Enjoy with grilled cheese sandwiches, tuna melts or cheese and crackers.
