Mom and I went to Germany and Austria and one of the dishes we just fell in love with was simple Potato Soup. This recipe is very reminiscent of the soup we ate.
7-8 New Potatoes, scrubbed well and cubed
4 cups water or chicken broth
2 carrots, cubed
1 onion, chopped
2 celery sticks, chopped
2 cups corn (frozen or fresh – optional)
1 Tbsp Chicken base, or veggie base (can omit if using chicken broth)
1/2 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp dill weed
1/4 tsp dill seed
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 cup milk
2 tsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp butter
In a large pot, add everything but milk, cornstarch and butter. Bring just to a boil, and reduce heat to medium/low. Simmer for 40 minutes. Then mix milk and cornstarch together and pour into soup, stirring constantly. Top with the butter and stir one final time.
Omit butter and chicken base or broth if making vegan.
