Time Saver Recipes ---- Crock Pot Potato Soup

Soups are the perfect food to me with our fall weather.   I have this cooking in my crock pot right now as I write this up.

Crock Pot Potato Soup


1 onion,  diced
1 c. diced carrot
1 c. diced celery
1 glove minced garlic
8 c. diced potato
2 c. chicken stock
2 c. water
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 tsp parsley flakes
2 cups milk

Add all ingredients except the milk.   Cook in the crockpot on high for approx.  5 - 6 hrs.    Crockpots do vary so check on it after 4 hrs.
When the potatoes are soft, turn the crockpot down to low.   I like my potato soup smooth so I use my immersion blender to puree the soup.   Then slowly add the milk while stirring the soup.    Let heat through for about 30 min.

You can add grated cheese or crumbled bacon  or dollop of sour cream on top of each serving.

We also occasionally add broccoli instead of carrots.
