Cheesy potatoe comfort soup





Potato-Cheese Comfort Soup

Serves: 8

Prep time: 15 min    Cook time: 7-8 hours



Ingredients

6 Cups diced, peeled potatoes (red and russet)

5 Cups water

1 Cup diced onion

½ Cup diced celery

½ Cup chopped carrots

¼ Cup butter

4 Teaspoons chicken bouillon

2 Teaspoon sea salt and ¼ Teaspoon pepper to taste

12-oz Can evaporated milk

3 Tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

1 Cup shredded cheddar or Colby cheese

*If you are a fan, sprinkle some fresh cut chives on top before serving.


Preparation

1.      Combine all ingredients except milk, parsley and cheese in slow cooker

2.      Cover, and cook on high for 7-8 hours, or until vegetables are tender

3.      Stir in milk and parsley

4.      Stir in cheese until it melts, and heat thoroughly

 This soup is seriously one of my faves.  I like to add broccoli and cauliflower to mine.  It should be eaten on special occasion due to the high fat content or if you are needed to add some weight.  It is comforting and soothing to the stomach and throat and you can add more nutrients with broccoli, spinach, bacon, cauliflower, etc.
