Velvety Smooth Cream of Potato Soup

Pin It

This soup is easy to prepare and is very comforting. This is not a thick soup, but smooth and velvety with much flavor and very satisfying. A great soup recipe for the cold winter! Ready in 1 1/4 hours; 15 minutes preparation time

4 tablespoons butter
1 stalk celery, sliced – plus leaves
1/2 onion, chopped
5 carrots, sliced
4 medium white potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 sprigs fresh parsley, coarsely chopped
5 cups chicken broth
1 cup LDF heavy cream
salt and pepper, to taste

Melt butter in a large saucepan or Dutch oven and saute the celery, onion, and carrots until tender, about 20 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add potatoes and parsley, toss until coated. Add broth, bring to a slow boil and cook until potatoes are soft. Remove from stove. Reserve 1/3 of the chopped veggies; puree remaining soup (broth and veggies) in a food processor or blender. Pour puree back into original pot, along with the reserved chopped veggies. Stir and add heavy cream, heating through. DO NOT BOIL.
Serves 6-8
