Potato Soup X


Here's an easy, thick potato soup. Potatoes are boiled with celery and onion and then reduced to a rich, creamy texture. I use one per cent milk, but any milk should work fine.

  • 4 potatoes - peeled and cubed

  • 3 stalks celery, chopped

  • 2 teaspoons dried onion flakes

  • 2 quarts water

  • 2 cups milk

  • ½ cup unsalted butter

  • 1 cup potato flakes

  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large pot over high heat, combine the potatoes, celery and onion with the water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.

  2. Drain the water, reserving 2 cups of water in the pot. Add the milk, butter and potato flakes. Stir all together well until thickened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
