I had to post this because it is one of my daughter's favorite meals. We top it with shredded cheese, and have yeast rolls on the side. It isn't spicy, so most kids like it. This recipe came from "Now You're Cookin" Cookbook.
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine, melted
- 4 chicken bouillon cubes
- 4 cups boiling water
- 14 1⁄2 ounces chicken broth
- 3 cups potatoes, peeled and diced, about 2 pounds
- 1 cup carrot, grated
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 (8 ounce) carton sour cream
- 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
- shredded cheese
- Saute onion in butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat; stirring constantly, until tender.
- Dissolve bouillon cubes in boiling water. Add bouillon and broth to dutch oven. Bring to a boil. Add potato; cover, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
- Stir in carrot, salt, and pepper; cover and simmer 15 minutes or until potato is tender.
- Combine flour and 2 tbsp cooking liquid, stirring with a wire whisk until smooth. Stir flour mixture into soup mixture; cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat to low, stir in sour cream and parsley. Cook just until thoroughly heated.
- Serve in individual bowls. Top with cheese.
Made it for my DDs,both down with a cold and both with no appetite, but none complained when I was feeding them. I chopped everything up in the mixer and I left out the salt (the youngest one is 9 months old).Added the sour cream just before serving as I wanted some soup without. For me the butter is what makes the soup. Thanks for this , I'll be making it a lot for my DDs.
For this soup I used self made chicken broth! I cutted potatoes and carrots in small cubes and prepard this delicious soup with them. For serving i topped the soup with the cheese and served with homemade bread. I made only a mistake: I should have made much more...it was too good!
We liked this quite a lot. I am not sure that I would use as much sour cream next time - perhaps use evaporated milk for part, or perhaps my sour cream was more tart than usual. I used all chicken - well, actually turkey broth for this. I also added a bay leaf and some whole peppercorns, both of which are great assets to this type of soup. I used the large holes of the box grater for the carrot, which made a pretty flakes in the soup. What I particularly like is that I always have these ingredients available - a perfect pantry soup!
