Little Momma's Simple Potato Soup

My "Little Momma" has made her share of this soup. If my sissy & I weren't feeling well this is the soup we asked for; not chicken noodle. My Grammy & Momma both made this soup and it is by far the soup I've had the most. I do love it when my Momma makes it but she is in Florida so I decided to make it myself today. I think there was a season when I was growing up that we could of lived on this soup alone with a few crackers of course.

This is as simple as a soup gets. It's pure, light and full of healthy vegetables that will satisfy your hunger. Most of all, for me it's soup for my soul!

Prep:

10 Min

Cook:

25 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

7 - 9 c
water
6-8 medium
potatoes, new red
1/4 medium
sweet onion, diced
3 medium
carrots, sliced thin or julienned
3-4 medium
celery ribs, sliced thin
2 tsp
nature's seasonings
1 1/2- 2 c
whole milk
4 - 5 Tbsp
butter
2 Tbsp
coffee creamer powder (optional)
salt and pepper, to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Prep all your veggies by slicing and dicing.
2
After peeling and slicing your potatoes rinse them off well in a colander to get off any excess starch that you can.
3
Fill your cooking pot with at least 7 cups of water and then add all your veggies.
4
Place on the stove over medium heat and add your Nature Seasonings. Stir the veggies in the pot and then cover and cook for 20 minutes.
5
After 20 minutes you'll want to scoop out some veggies and see if they are done. If not, cook covered for just 10 minutes longer. You don't want to over cook as your potatoes will fall apart. Turn down your heat, add your butter and 1 cup of milk, salt & pepper. Taste, see what you think. If it looks like watered down milk, add another 1/2- 1 cup of milk.

This is a truly simple soup; nothing fancy. It's just plain veggies in a very healthy broth. Go by your taste and how you want it. Now, you'll also add in the creamer at this point to give more texture if you want.
