Potato Soup

Potato Soup

I posted a different recipe for potato soup a month or two ago, however I like this version much more than the one I posted then.

-4 carrots, peeled and diced
-2 stalks celery, diced
-1 onion, diced
-2 Tbsp butter
-2 cups chicken broth
-4 potatoes, peeled and diced
-1.5 tsp sugar
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp dried rosemary
-1/2 tsp dried thyme
-1/8 tsp pepper
-1/3 cup flour
-2.5 cups milk
-1 cup cheddar cheese, grated

Melt butter in large pot over medium heat.  Saute carrot, celery and onion until soft (about 5 minutes).  Add broth, potatoes, and sugar- pepper.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 20 minutes.  Using a hand masher or immersion blender puree potatoes.  Combine flour with 1/2 cup of milk.  Stir into soup.  Stir in remaining milk and simmer 5 minutes for soup to thicken.  Remove from heat and stir in cheese.  Top with grated cheese, crumbled bacon, scallions or chives.
