It was a dad and the kids weekend. For my wife's birthday she gets to go off to a scrap booking retreat and spend the whole day scrap booking with all meals provided. It's a cool treat and she totally deserves it!!
Of course, hanging out with kids means they become guinea pigs for my recipe experiments. Tonight I decided potato soup sounded good. I didn't have a specific recipe but decided to kind of throw my own recipe together and put a cheesy touch to it. Here's what I came up with and, I have to say, it's pretty good! The kids loved it and I will be making it again as we get closer to the cold weather!
Cheesy Potato Soup
Prep and Cook Time: 30-35 minutes
2 cups vegetable broth
4 large potatoes, peeled, cubed
1 medium white onion, chopped
1 tsp. dried parsley
1/2 tsp. salt
1 pinch black pepper
2 Tbsp. and 2 tsp. flour
1 1/2 cups soy milk
1/4 cup nutritional yeast flakes
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. corn starch
1) Put vegetable broth, potatoes, onion, parsley, salt and pepper into large pan. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook 18-20 min or until potatoes are soft.
2) In a separate bowl, mix flour, milk, nutritional yeast flakes, lemon juice, garlic powder and corn starch.
3) Once potatoes are soft, add in mixture from bowl and simmer for another 5 minutes.
