What You Need

4 Large potatoes (cleaned, peeled and cubed)

3 Stalks celery (finely chopped)

¼ Cup green onions (about three) tops and bottoms ( finely chopped)

4 Cups chicken broth

2 ¼ Cup milk (cream or half and half)

2 Tbsp. Butter (unsalted)

¼ Cup flour (or instant mashed potatoes)

Salt and pepper

Large saucepan or soup pot with lid

Blender (or food processor)

Large Bowl

Ladle

Lets Make It! In a saucepan (soup pot) over medium heat ,melt the butter and add green onions and celery, sauté for 5 minutes. Add chicken broth and potatoes increase heat to medium high and bring to a boil. Stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low , cover and simmer 20- 25 minutes (until potatoes are tender.) Remove from heat to cool. Transfer to a large bowl. Reserve a few potatoes on the side ( for adding  at the end). Using a ladle place soup into the blender ( you will need to work in batches) blend until smooth and return to pot. Add milk and heat until it starts to bubble around edges,add reserved potato chunks stir well. Gradually add flour (or instant mashed potatoes) stirring well to blend and thicken ( if you like it thicker just add a little bit more). Add salt and pepper to taste  and serve.

Serves 2-4

**Katies’ Tid Bits- add diced ham or cooked bacon bits.  To make gluten free use homemade chicken stock or gluten-free packaged broth. If vegetarian use a milk substitute ( soy, etc) and vegetable stock.

    Great recipe, Katie! Comfort food can be a healthy choice. It doesn’t have to be loaded with fat and sugar!

    That sounds yummy. I could go for a bowl of that!

  14. Alex J. Cavanaugh

    I’m not a soup person until it gets really cold, so this sounds good now. I bet a vegetarian milk substitute would be less fatty as well.
