Easy Potato Soup Recipe


3-1/2 cups potatoes, peeled
1/3 cup celery
1/3 cup onion
1/3 cup carrots
3 cups water
1 to 1-1/2 TBS Better Than Bouillon chicken base
5 TBS homemade unsalted butter
5 TBS flour
2 cups milk
salt and pepper to taste

Combine the potatoes, celery, onion and water in a dutch oven or large saucepan. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Add the chicken base. If it is too weak tasting, add a little more base until it tastes perfect.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and cook for one minute. Slowly whisk in the milk and cook until thickened; approximately five minutes. Add the the potato mixture and cook until hot.

Following are some other ideas:

Spicy Italian sausage, mushroom and onion
Diced chicken and steamed broccoli
Cheddar Potato Soup with bacon and chopped green onion
Garlic chicken, carrots and peas
Roast beef, carrots and peas

Serve with crusty homemade bread and a crisp salad with homemade salad dressing.


2 large cooked baked potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 cup half-and-half cream
5 bacon strips, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp homemade garlic powder
1 tsp homemade onion powder
3 TBS flour
salt and pepper to taste

Serve with:
cheddar cheese, shredded
green onion, chopped
sour cream

In a skillet, fry chopped bacon and onion until bacon is cooked and onion is tender. Remove and drain; set aside.

In the same bacon fat, add the flour and whisk together until smooth. Gradually whisk in the broth, bring to a boil and mix for two minutes. Add the potatoes and half-and-half. Mix well until heated through. Top each serving with cheddar cheese, bacon and sour cream. Delish. 

I like to thicken it up and serve as a side dish to steak and chicken.
