Snow Soup

Soup and winter...they go together like hand and glove.  The weather has been unseasonably mild this week, but no matter!  Potato soup is good anytime!  :)

Tonight for supper, we ate potato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches.  Yum!

I thought I'd share the soup recipe.  It is easy to prepare and calls for ingredients usually on-hand.  (What could be better than that?!)

          Creamy Corn and Potato Chowder

          2 tbsp. butter
          2 tbsp. dried minced onion, reconstituted
          3 medium potatoes, cut into 1/2" cubes
          1/2 tsp. dried sage leaves
          3 tbsp. flour
          1 (14 1/2 oz.) can chicken broth
          2 c. milk
          1 (9 oz.) package frozen corn
          2 tsp. dried parsley flakes

          Melt butter in Dutch oven over medium-high heat.  Add onion, potatoes, and
          sage; cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

          Add flour; blend well.  Stir in chicken broth; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat;
          cover and simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

          Add milk and corn.  Increase heat to medium; cook, uncovered, for an
          additional 5 minutes.  Stir in parsley.

  1. Looks yummy, this is my hubby's favorite combo meal!

  2. Looks good...just 2 problems. There is no snow (or winter really) this year AND I am on a low-carb diet. Although...I think I would be naughty and make this if it were FRIGID out! LOL!

    1. Yes...definitely NOT low-carb! Ouch!!
