 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       tb           Oil
    2       ea           Yellow onion, sliced
    1       tb           Grated lemon zest
      1/2   ts           Ginger, grated
    1       c            Lemon juice
      1/2   ts           Sugar
      1/2   ts           Salt
      1/2   ts           Fresh ground pepper
    4       c            Water
    4       lg           Red potatoes, boil & chop
    2       tb           Italian parsley, chopped
 
   In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. When
   it begins to foam, add the onions, lemon zest, and
   ginger and saute until the onions are translucent,
   about 10 min. Add the lemon juice with sugar, salt and
   pepper; continue to saute for 2-3 min longer. Add the
   water, raise the heat to high, and bring to a boil.
   Cover, reduce the heat to medium, and simmer until the
   broth is golden and the onions have almost completely
   disintegrated, about 30 min.
   
   Remove from the heat and strain through a sieve into a
   clean container; discard the contents of the sieve.
   Working in batches if necessary, combine the strained
   stock and the potatoes in a blender or food processor
   and puree until smooth. Transfer the puree to a clean
   saucepan and bring to a gentle boil.
   
   Ladle into warmed soup bowls and garnish each serving
   with a little of the parsley.
