|Easy Potato Soup (gluten free, low sodium)|
G-man made supper tonight. Seriously, all I did was chop up the potatoes and carrots, slice a few rings off an onion and measure out milk. He put it all in the pot. We turned on the heat, gave it an occasional stir and enjoyed homemade potato soup in less than an hour. No roux, no cream, no fuss.
For four large servings:
5 medium potatoes, peeled
1 cup peeled and chopped carrots (optional)
5 cups milk
1 cup water
2 tbsp sliced onion
1/2 tsp salt or lite salt
1 tsp dried parsley
Thinly slice three of the potatoes and coarsely cube the rest. The thin slices will dissolve, thickening the soup. Put all ingredients in a pot and turn on the heat. Leave the lid off the pot and stir the soup as it comes to a boil. Reduce the heat and stir occasionally until the larger chunks of potato are rounded and start to fall apart. Turn off the heat for a few minutes and serve.

This sounds amazing! Do you think if I used unsweetend Almond milk it would be ok? Does it matter what kind of milk skim, 2% etc? Thanks for posting!ReplyDelete
Thank you! We used 2% because we had it on hand. Whole will make a creamier soup and skim somewhat thinner.ReplyDelete
Have you cooked with almond milk before? Does it reduce?

That sounds delicious - I've never made milk-based (as opposed to broth-based) potato soup before. THanks for sharing at Healthy 2Day Wednesday!ReplyDelete
