If you don’t know me, you might not know. I hate winter. HATE. It’s the only thing I truly hate. I saw 10 inches of snow for the 1st time in my life & watched people who grew up in this awful weather spin their tires & slide their cars into ditches. Worst of all its the only time I get sick. I normally only get sick once. This year I got it twice.
The worst part is I’m craving comfort foods…normally when I’m sick I go to KFC & buy chicken tenders, mashed potatoes & macaroni. I’m trying to stick to my vegetarian-ism so I’m making homemade soup today.
Today’s recipe is White Bean Potato Soup.
5-6 red potatoes (about 4 cups chopped)
1 can cannellini beans, rinsed (white kidney)
1/2c chopped onion (to taste)
1/2 celery stalk, chopped finely
1 carrot, grated or chopped
2 tsp powder vegetable broth stock
2 garlic bulbs, chopped
White pepper, to taste
Put all ingredients in pot (except beans) cover with water & boil till potatoes are soft. Then rinse beans & add to pot, reduce heat & simmer for 15ish minutes.
If you can’t find or don’t have powdered broth or bouillon you can boil potatoes first, strain some of the water out and add a cup or 2 of canned/boxed broth.
I topped my soup with shredded cheese & chopped green onions. As with all my recipes, it’s very easy to adjust or add/subtract for your taste buds. Simple is my kind of recipe!
