Add potatoes and stir to coat. Add chicken broth, increase heat to medium-high, bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 20 min.
Fill a blender 2/3 full and puree soup in batches until smooth. Return to saucepan and warm through.
Using a blender, pulse garlic until finely minced. Add parsley and dill and pulse until finely minced. Add cheese, oil, lemon juice and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper and process until smooth.
Evenly divide soup among 6 bowls and garnish each with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the parsley and dill pesto.
