Potato Soup

Potato Soup

This easy, budget-loving recipe makes a meal all by itself, a tasty snack or an elegant side dish. Leftovers freeze well. Double (or triple!) the recipe if you wish.

1 onion, minced
2 – 3 T. margarine (or light oil)
3- 4 large potatoes, diced
Water
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 C. milk (optional)

Sauté the onion in a large pot until soft, Add the potatoes, margarine and water to cover 1/2 inch above the vegetables. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are well cooked. Using a potato masher or fork, mash some of the potatoes in the pot and stir well to give a nice creamy soup.

Serve hot with bannock or bread.

Suggestion: Add carrots, turnip, parsnip or other vegetables. Add a little chopped meat, tomato sauce or a few beans. Parsley, dill and and garlic really help bring out a nice flavour in potatoes.

Option: One of my pals likes to thicken her potato soup with a flour-water mixture, like you’d do in a gravy… Try it if your soup is too thin; cook at lease 5 more minutes, stirring often.
