When the temps drop just the tinniest bit here in Florida I start craving soups. Even my kiddos start requesting soups and their ultimate favorite is Potato Soup.
- 6 cups chopped Potato
- 8 cups (4 cans) vegetable stock
- 1 Medium Carrot –shaved and diced
- 1 stalk of celery finely chopped
- 10 tbsp. + 1tsp butter
- 10 tbsp. flour
- 2 cans evaporated milk
- 1 clove garlic
- Salt and pepper
Peel and chop potatoes, boil in stock about 15 mins
Sautee onion, celery, carrot, and garlic with 1 tsp. butter, salt and pepper about 5 minutes in a separate pot. Make the Roux: Melt butter in a sauce pan, add flour, stir till smooth, add milk and whisk till thick.
Stir into stock and potatoes. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer till it thickens.
Hope you enjoy this as much as my family does.
