Recipe: Potato Soup

20141002_174716

My dairy free version, added some celery, peppers and corn. That is the best part of soups, adding what you have and what you like.

One of my favorite soups is potato soup. This is my standard recipe, the only difference is that it will be dairy free. A regular broth soup instead of a cream soup using olive oil instead of butter, and pork instead of bacon.  But when I could have all the dairy, I made this a lot.

Potato Soup

6 cups diced potatoes
2 medium onions, chopped
3 cups chicken broth
2-3 carrots chopped
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3 cups milk
3 tbsp. chopped parsley
5-8 slices crumbled bacon

Combine all ingredients except milk and parsley in crockpot. Cook on low 7-8 hours, or until potatoes are done. Add milk and parsley and cook on high another 30 minutes. Garnish with cheddar cheese and fresh chives. For creamier soup, substitute 1 cup of cream for 1 cup of milk.

Proverbs 31:14-15
She is like the merchant ships,
She brings her food from afar.
She also rises while it is yet night,
And provides food for her household,
And a portion for her maidservants.
