Homemade Potato Soup

 

My boys love homemade potato soup! This is a favorite that my Nannie makes for them. It’s easy and nutritious. Plus, it warms up great for leftovers!

 

Homemade Potato Soup Ingredients

 

  • 20 large potatoes, chopped into bite sized pieces
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup of carrots, diced
  • 2 boxes of chicken stock
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 tablespoon garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste

 

How to Make Homemade Potato Soup

 

Once you cut your potatoes, carrots, and onions into bite sized pieces combine all ingredients over medium heat on the stove in a large pan. It will come to a slow boil. Stir occasionally. Let it boil until the potatoes are tender, then turn the heat back. You can serve immediately or let simmer for the day. It goes perfectly with fresh baked bread!

    I LOVE potato soup but going dairy free I have not experimented much on how to replace all the dairy. Thanks for this yummy sounding recipe and it is encouraging me to try a dairy free version 🙂

    This looks like a great recipe as we start to get into cooler fall weather and who doesn’t love potatoes. I unfortunately don’t do so well with cooking but luckily for me, hubby does so I copied the recipe to have him make it for me one night! I will let you know how it turns out. 🙂
