Comforting Potato Soup



  • 3 t. oil, heat a large pot
  • Saute in pot:
  • 8 medium Idaho potatoes
  • 2 ribs celery, diced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 sweet onions, diced

Saute until the onions are getting transparent. Add:

  • 5 c. low sodium chicken broth PLUS 1 c. more for later use
  • 1/2 t. paprika
  • 1 t. dill
  • 1 t. caraway seeds
  • 1 t. marjoram
  • Bring to boil and simmer about 75 minutes.


Now use the last cup of broth and mix with 1 c. powdered milk (has less sodium) and mix very well to dissolve the powder. Add to pot and mix well. Heat 5 more minutes.

Use a potato masher for a chunky soup or a stick blender blend for a creamy soup.
