Ingredients

    10oz (280g)potatoes
    1 medium-sized onion
    8 small slices of bread
    2 pints (1.1litres) broth
    1 tbsp of olive oil
    thyme
    salt and pepper to taste
    grated cheese (parmesan is great)
    nutmeg
    2oz (60g) butter (optional)

Directions

Cut the potatoes in thin strips, as if you were going to make very small chips. Chop the onion. Heat the olive oil in the saucepan, brown the onion, then add the potatoes and season them with salt pepper, nutmeg and thyme. Pour over the boiling broth. In 15 minutes the soup will be ready.

To go with it, prepare the following crostini: saturate the slices of bread with melted butter (if using); spread them thickly with grated cheese and cook them in a moderate oven (180į/350F/gas mark 4) for 10 minutes.

Just for the record, in case you were wondering, I cut my potatoes into 2″ long 5mm wide sticks, I diced the onion finely and my brown was golden, texture like sun. When the soup was cooked I also mashed some of the soft potato sticks against the side of the pan with a fork to thicken things up.
