Sorry to be so corny but I couldn’t resist. It’s definitely soup weather here at the moment so I thought I’d share a family favourite.
Take the following ingredients and dice.
3 large potatoes
1 small carrot
1 stalk celery
1 small onion
Add to a large pot with 4 cups of vegetable stock. Bring to boil, then cook covered until veggies are tender.
Add 2 1/2 cups milk (any type you prefer).
Meanwhile whisk together 4 tablespoons (5 for those in the USA) butter with 5 tablespoons (6 for USA) plain flour. Add to pot and stir over medium heat until soup mixture thickens.
You can leave like this or puree with stick blender or food processor.
Now, if you prefer a more cheesy taste you can add 1 cup of grated cheese turning this into cheesy potato chowder.
Now enjoy. This is a very decadent soup, with or without the cheese, and has been loved by everyone we’ve ever served it to.
