Potato soup is one of my favorites and a real “comfort food,” especially on cold days. If you prefer, substitute onions for the scallions.  It’s delicious either way.  With hearty bread and a salad, you’ll have a meal in minutes.

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 cups potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 cup chopped scallions, both green and white parts
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped celery
  • 3 tablespoons diced lean ham
  • 1 packed tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 2 1/2 cups skim milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • Garnish:  Chopped green part of scallions

PREPARATION

  1. Place potatoes, scallions, celery, chopped ham, parsley, salt and water in large saucepan. Bring to boil, cover and reduce to medium heat. Boil slowly for about 10 minutes, or until potatoes are soft. Mash mixture with whisk to break apart some of the potatoes.
  2. Add milk and black pepper to soup, and heat just until boiling. Remove from heat, and ladle into bowls. Top each serving with chopped scallion tops.

Seriously yum! 😛 I might have to try that for sure. But since I am a ham hater (but love bacon…don’t ask) I might try with some apple wood smoke bacon or maybe even chicken or no meat at all. Hmmmm
