Creamy Potato Soup Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups of peeled and diced potatoes

  • 1 medium-sized onion, finely chopped

  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 4 cups of vegetable broth

  • 1 cup of milk (or dairy-free alternative)

  • 2 tablespoons of butter (or olive oil for a vegan option)

  • 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Chopped fresh chives ( optional for garnish)

  • Bacon (optional for garnish)

Instructions:

1. Prep Your Ingredients:

  • Begin by peeling and dicing the potatoes

  • Finely chopping the onion, and mincing the garlic.

  • Shred the cheddar cheese and set it aside.

2. Sauté:

  • In a large pot, melt the butter (or heat the olive oil) over medium heat.

  • Add the chopped onion and minced garlic, sautéing until they become fragrant and translucent.

3. Make the Roux:

  • Sprinkle the flour over the sautéed onions and garlic. Stir continuously for about 2 minutes to create a roux. This will help thicken the soup.

4. Add the Potatoes and Broth:

  • Pour in the diced potatoes and vegetable broth.

  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to simmer, covering the pot. Let it simmer for about 15-20 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.

5. Blend the Soup:

  • Once the potatoes are tender, use an immersion blender to puree the soup until it's smooth and creamy. You can also transfer the mixture to a blender, blend, and return it to the pot. ( I personally prefer having some potatoes in the soup so I only blend about half of the mixture)


6. Add Milk and Cheddar:

  • Stir in the milk (or dairy-free alternative) to achieve your desired creaminess.

  • Gradually add the shredded cheddar cheese, stirring until it's completely melted into the soup.

7. Simmer and Serve:

  • Allow the soup to simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes to meld the flavors.

  • Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary.

8. Garnish and Enjoy:

  • Ladle the creamy potato soup into bowls.

  • Garnish with chopped fresh chives or bacon for a burst of color and flavor.

  • Serve hot and savor every spoonful of this comforting delight!
