1. Heat oil in a large saucepan on medium. Cook onion for 3 minutes, until beginning to soften. Add potato, stock and 3 cups water and bring to boil. Reduce heat, add artichoke and garlic and simmer for 30 minutes, until potato is very soft.
2. Set aside to cool slightly before placing in a food processor or blender to puree. Return to saucepan and reheat on low. Serve soup topped with parsley.
