EASY MASHED POTATO SOUP

EASY MASHED POTATO SOUP

Here I am again with another of my

Mashed Potatoes in Disguise recipes.

Earlier this week I gave you a very elegant brunch which included Waffled Mashed Potatoes (recipe here)

More leftovers gave us some yummy

Mashed Potato Kale Cakes with Rouille (recipe here)

This next recipe is perfect

for when you have some leftover mashed potatoes

hanging around your galley

and you really don’t feel like cooking too much of anything.

This was our soup-for-supper evening

and it took just a few minutes from stove top to table.

EASY MASHED POTATO SOUP

2 main servings

what you will need

2 tbsp butter

1/4 cup minced onion

2 cups mashed potatoes

2 cups milk

2 cups chicken broth

1 tsp ground celery seed

Sea salt & ground pepper to taste

chopped chives or parsley to dress

putting it all together

In your saucepan sauté the onion in butter

just until the onion becomes translucent and softened.

Stir in potatoes and blend with onion.

Add milk and chicken broth.

Season and very gently simmer to bring the flavours together.

Ladle into your soup bowls

and serve with some fresh crusty bread.

Now wasn’t that easy?
…and
…due to an upcoming ‘Captain Cooks’ post,
I happen to have some leftover beer marinated ham
to add a little something extra
to another round….

 One cup chopped ham added to sautéed onions

Add to that 1/2 cup canned corn

Turns a  basic potato soup into one very tasty and hearty
potage (French term for a rich thick soup or stew)
