Warm & Tasty Potato Soup

It is getting cold outside & I was craving a creamy soup (my previous “go-to’s” would have been Cheddar/Broccoli or Cream of Mushroom).  Since potatoes are inexpensive right now, I decided to try my hand at creating a FAILSAFE version of my grandmother’s recipe for Potato Soup.

(Remember that what we post here works for our families…if there is an ingredient that you/yours cannot tolerate, either substitute it or eliminate it completely)

Warm & Tasty Potato Soup

Saute until soft:

  2 T            Butter

  2 stalks   Celery, diced

  3              Green onion white tips, diced (separate-save green ends for garnish)

  1 T            Garlic, minced

Add to stock pot:

  4 c            Stock (I used FAILSAFE chicken stock, p.96 The Failsafe Cookbook)

  6 Lg         Potatoes (peeled, diced)

                   sautéed ingredients from above

Cook on med/high until potato is cooked/soft (about 20 minutes or so).  Use immersion blender to “cream up” the soup, but do not blend until smooth-you still want chunks of the potato & celery. 

Add:

  2 c             Milk

  1 T             Butter

                    Salt to taste

Garnish with:

                    green onion

 

Enjoy!
