This is a super easy and delicious Potato Soup recipe. It's yummy when topped with bacon, cheese, sour cream and chives. Here's how I do it:
3 tablespoons butter or oil $.27
1 onion, finely diced $.88
1 carrot, diced $.15
1 stalk of celery, finely diced $.17
1/4 cup flour $.05
4 cups chicken broth (or vegetable broth for vegetarian soup) $1.00 (on sale)
3 or 4 potatoes, diced $.30-.40
1 cup milk $.22
salt and pepper, to your liking
Prepare the ingredients if not already.
In large Dutch oven, heat butter or oil over medium heat. Saute onion until lightly golden brown. Add carrots and celery and saute for 1 minute.
Sprinkle the vegetables with flour and toss around for another 1 minute
Pour chicken broth over vegetables and whisk together. Bring to boil and reduce to simmer for 10 minutes. Add potatoes and pour in milk; stire well and bring to boil then reduce to simmer for 15 minutes. Add seasonings to your liking.
Serve with bacon, cheese, sour cream, chives (fresh chives would be so much better but I only had some dried chives in the pantry) or whatever you like. (the toppings are not included in the cost per serving).
Make your own Potato Soup and only spend $3.14 for 4-6 people, or about $.79 per serving. Leftovers freeze well. Thaw in refrigerator and heat on the stove top.
