Mom’s Old-Fashioned Potato Soup


I don’t know about you, but I look forward to enjoying delicious homemade soup every fall! And when I think of one of my all-time favorite soups from my childhood, it’s definitely my Mom’s old fashioned potato soup! So I thought I’d share the goodness with you. And if you’re like many these days that try to stay away from carbs/potatoes, you can replace the potatoes with cauliflower… mmmmm, it’s absolutely delicious!! Happy Souping 

1/4 cup butter 
1 large chopped onion 
8 diced & peeled potatoes
4 carrots, chopped 
4 cups of water 
2T chicken bouillon powder 
3T flour 
4 cups milk 
Parsley & pepper to taste
Preparation: 20 minutes

Place potatoes, carrots, water & chicken bouillon powder in pot and bring to a boil. Cook until vegetables are tender, about 7-9 minutes. Season to taste with pepper & parsley. 
Melt butter in saucepan in separate pot and stir in the onion and cook for about 4-5 minutes.  Add the flour to the cooked onions cooking over low heat for a couple minutes, making a paste. Gradually pour in the milk, while stirring. Add the potato and carrot mixture and cook until thoroughly heated.
