I decided today that due to the cold and snowy weather out there, it was the perfect time to make some hot homemade soup. After a huge potato sale at Zehrs the other day, I had 20 pounds of potatoes in my kitchen waiting to be used up. Granted, I didn’t use the entire 20 pounds, but I did manage to make up this recipe for a really yummy potato soup.
Cat’s Potato Soup
1/4 Cup Margarine
6 Medium Size Potatoes, chopped
2 Ribs Celery, chopped
2 Medium Onions, chopped
2 packets Chicken Oxo Soup Broth
Water to cover the veggies in the pot
1 1/2 Cups Milk (I used Homoganized as it is creamier)
Saute the onion, celery and potatoes in the margarine until the onion and celery are slightly soft. Transfer all of the vegetables to a cooking pot, and add enough water to cover the contents of the pot. Add in chicken broth and simmer for a half hour until potatoes are fully cooked and soft. Blend soup with a hand blender until smooth. Add milk, and a dash of fresh ground pepper and heat through for a few minutes until hot. Mmmm!! So good, I actually had thirds!
