Hearty Potato Soup: Come and Get It!

Hearty Potato Soup

I usually double this recipe (sometimes triple).
Serves: 4

3 cups diced potatoes (about 3 medium)
2 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chopped onions
2 tablespoons margarine
2 tablespoons flour
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon parsley
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Bring potatoes, water and salt to boil in medium-size saucepan.  Reduce heat, cover and simmer 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.  Without draining them, mash potatoes until the size of peas.  Meanwhile in large saucepan cook onion in margarine 3 minutes until translucent.  Sprinkle with flour; cook and stir 1 minute.  Gradually stir in milk and cook, stirring frequently, 5 to 7 minutes until simmering and thickened.  Stir in potato mixture and remaining ingredients.

  1. When I made this I cut up my potatoes too small :) So the soup had about the same consistency as applesauce. Also, I think I burnt the milk that was in it. I'll have to try it again :)
