Super Easy Cream of Potato Soup

Lately I've been trying to cook things that are heavy on left overs, since I'm hitting that lovely 3rd trimester energy let down.  Most of the time I just don't feel like cooking because carting two babies around wears me out.  So I've been focusing on things that are easy to freeze and use later.  This way, I'll hopefully have a fairly good stockpile for when the Rowselettes get here, and I'm a walking zombie. ;)

Cream of Potato Soup
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 3 carrots, chopped
  • 12 red potatoes, cut into 1/2 in. pieces
  • 8 c. H2O
  • 2 c. milk
  • Salt & Pepper
  1.  Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a large pot or dutch oven over medium heat.
  2. Saute onion, celery, and carrots for ~5 min. while you prep potatoes.
  3. Add a dash of salt and pepper to the veggies and stir to combine.
  4. Place potatoes in the pot and add water.  Turn heat to high and bring to a boil.
  5. Once boil is achieved, turn down, and simmer with lid on for 20 min.
  6. Check potatoes to make sure they are soft.  Turn heat to low.
  7. Puree soup using an immersion blender or food processor. (If using a food processor, turn heat off and allow soup to cool for about 10 minutes.  Process in batches.)
  8. Stir in milk and salt and pepper to taste.

This soup is so yummy!  And simple and super budget friendly.  It's really excellent with some shredded sharp cheddar, chives, and bacon on top and paired with some delicious crusty bread.

  1. I literally made your potato leek soup last night, which is pretty much the same thing but with leeks instead of onions. It is so easy and one of my favorites because Kevin will actually eat this right up. Hope there is still some left when I get home tonight! :)

    1. Nice! I made it without leeks, since I had onions on hand. Glad you like that recipe so much. :)
