Potato Soup

I just love fixing soups when the weather turns cooler.  It has been such a HOT summer here, that these 70 degree days seem pretty COOL!  I love this potato soup recipe.  It is very economical and is SO good!  Add in some chopped ham or bacon for an extra treat…enjoy!


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, chopped (or 2 tablespoons dried minced onion)
  • 3 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 4 potatoes, washed and chopped (peeled too if you desire)
  • 4 cups chicken stock (or 4 cups of water and 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon)
  • 2 cups filtered water
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 garlic, minced (or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder)
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1-2 teaspoons pepper (to taste)
  • ham or bacon (optional)
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups milk or fresh cream

Melt butter in a soup pot.  Stir in onion and soften over medium heat, about 5 minutes.

Add carrots, potatoes, chicken stock, water, and seasonings (and ham or bacon if adding).  Bring to a boil.

Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until vegetables are tender (about 20 minutes)

In a small bowl with lid, add flour and milk.  Put lid on and shake to mix well.  Bring soup to boil and add in milk/flour mixture.  Stir until the soup is thickened.  Remove from heat.

Serve with some homemade rolls and a salad for a YUMMY dinner!

    1. Well. you'll have to do some substitutions if you want it to be an E. The potatoes and carrots make it an E and you can't really change that. The butter isn't much in the recipe so I think that would be ok. But you probably shouldn't use ham because that is higher fat I think. You'll have to use a THM flour in place of the flour and almond milk in place of the milk. Since there won't be much protein in this, you'll need to add a low fat protein. Maybe you could add in some cooked and chopped chicken breast or something. Just some ideas.
  1. I added a bag of calirice. Great recipe! It’s become our Sunday night soup with homemade sourdough.
  2. I made this soup today, and I also put in some Broccoli and cauliflower . When it was done, I blended it up really smooth, and put cheddar cheese in it-yum! I didn’t have to add flour to thicken it, as the potatoes thickened it nicely. Also, I only used half the amount of milk, so it wouldn’t be too soupy. It was a big hit with most of my children!
  3. I want to thankyou for all that you do. As a new wife, the tips that you share, especially the recipes and what to serve them with ideas, have been so helpful to me. I never had a parent pass down a recipe book to me and I am so thankful to come across your site. My husband and I are both followers of Jesus Christ and are expecting our first child soon whom we will homeschool and educate to be equipped to serve the Lord. Thank you again for your time and diligence. There are many more I am sure, of whom you are helping so much! God bless you and your family!
    1. Dear Kari, You have blessed and encouraged me today with your note! I am so thankful that you have found my site helpful. That is my prayer, that I can come alongside those who have not had the training growing up, and mentor them a little. Congratulations on your new little one on the way! May the Lord bless you and your husband and you begin your family!
  4. I'm about to start making this for dinner tonight! I picked up the chicken broth on my way home from the YMCA. Thanks for the recipe! Sounds yummy! I'm doing it with canned ham. Virginia Knowles (www.comewearymoms.blogspot.com).
    1. Hi Virginia, I do hope you enjoy the recipe. The weather is warmer here, so I am thinking that a big taco salad would be good for tonight! Anyway...do enjoy the soup!
  5. Hi Sheri What a great recipe! I am typing this whilst listening to the thunder boom outside and the rain pouring down...it is a chilly 11 degrees Celsius (52 F) in Australia. I am thinking of changing the wheat flour to corn flour (as I am Gluten Free) for thickening the soup. I will see how this goes. Thanks and God Bless. Bec
