Great Potato Soup

Potato soup is a meal in itself and is easy to modify.


  • 1 onion
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 1-6 potatoes (more if you want heartier soup leftovers may be used)
  • water
  • small bunch of parsley or dill or both to taste may be dried
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • bay leaf


  1. Cook and mash potatoes, set a side.
  2. Chop onion and celery, then saute in pot with margarine or oil.
  3. Once celery is soft and onions slightly limp, stir in flour.
  4. Once fully incorparted, use a whisk and add enough water so soup has 1/2-3/4 the final volume you want.
  5. Now add bay leaf and dill or parsely or both.
  6. Let sit until boiling.
  7. Add mashed potatoes and stir, reheat and serve
