If you love rosemary, you will love this creamy focaccia soup!  I made some cheesy bread sticks one evening and decided to put some fresh rosemary on them to turn them into focaccia bread sticks.  It reminded me of how much I loved focaccia bread, so I decided that it would be even better with some creamy delicious focaccia soup.  There is no actual cream in this soup his soup is made creamy by pureeing the potatoes into a thick smooth broth.

I always start by sautéing an onion in olive oil on low to release its sweetness.  I throw in some garlic and rosemary and wait for the onions to get translucent.  Then I simply throw the potatoes, carrot and onion in the pot, add the water and cook until everything is soft.  I then use and emersion blender to puree it.  I find it much easier than transferring it to a blender, but if you don’t have an emersion blender you can use a blender, food processor , or even a potato masher to make it creamy.  This soup is a big hit with the whole family!
