Chunky Potato Soup

Serves: 4-6

2 c. water
2 chicken bouillon cubes
3 c. potatoes, peeled & cubed
1/2 c. onion, chopped
1/2 c. celery, thinly sliced
3/4 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
1/2 t. parsley
2 c. milk, divided
2 T. flour
1 c. sour cream
1-2 T. green onion, chopped

In a large saucepan, combine water, bouillon, potatoes, onion, celery, salt and pepper; bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add 1 3/4 cups of milk
and parsley. Combine flour with remaining milk; stir to form a smooth paste. Add to soup, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 3 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Add a small amount of hot liquid to sour cream; stir to mix. Gradually add to soup, stirring constantly; heat through but do not boil. Sprinkle with green onion.

Tips: This was a very tasty potato soup despite the lack of any flashy or fancy ingredients. It does take a few extra bowls to put everything together but the prep really isn't that bad. Since I live at high altitude it always seems to take longer for soups and sauces to get thickened and bubbly so keep that in mind if you are in this situation too. Warm soup is always enjoyed with your choice of quick bread or from the bread machine. I also shared this recipe at Simply Sweet Home's Friday Favorites and Balancing Beauty & Bedlam's Tasty Tuesday.
