Hearty potato soup. Great for cold winter days. My kids love it!! I made this for the cafe I ran, however had made it at home for years first. I multiplied my original recipe by 5 to get the one for the cafe. So, if divide it out by 5 using approximate measurements on the vegetables, you can use a regular size can of soup and make this recipe for a family of up to 6.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute onions, celery and carrots in margarine until onions are clear. Add potatoes and just enough water to cover the potatoes. Boil until potatoes are cooked through. When finished add soup, milk and cheese. Do not bring back to a boil! It will curdle if you boil.

Wonderful potato soup that I will definitely make it again. I did use chicken broth instead of water and skim milk but this was still a very good bowl of soup. Took this to my inlaw's for supper and they loved it too. Enjoyed the pieces of celery, carrots, and potatoes but this could easily be pureed in the blender for a cream soup. Served with a tossed salad and crusty bread. Thank you so much Mamamoose for sharing your recipe!
