    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Start boiling potatoes.
    2. 2
      In a soup pot, saute the onions and celery over medium heat for about 5-8 minutes, until it is soft.
    3. 3
      Add the garlic and cook for another 2 or 3 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add the flour and stir constantly for a minute.
    5. 5
      Stir in the milk and vegetable broth; bring to a slow simmer for about 5 minutes.
    6. 6
      Add paprika and season with salt and pepper.
    7. 7
      By this time, your potatoes should be done - you don't want them to be falling apart, but just fork-tender. Drain the potatoes and divide in half.
    8. 8
      Mash half of the potatoes and stir them into the soup. Simmer for another five minutes.
    9. 9
      Add the remaining potato chunks, and adjust seasonings to taste - I added a bit more pepper and another dash of smoked paprika.
    10. 10
      Serve with whatever toppings you like - bacon, fried onions, grated cheese, scallions, etc.

      I needed to use up some potatoes so I did a search & chose this soup because it would be a two-for-one. I'd be using the potatoes & easing my family back into smoked paprika, which we'd accidentally OD'd on with a recipe more than a year ago & I haven't been able to use it since. This was a small amount called for & Parsley's review sealed the deal. I was not disappointed! We all really enjoyed the "newness" of the smoked paprika. It's what set this recipe apart from the many other potato soups we've tried. I had small potatoes so I used 7 of them & I still ended up adding another cup of 2% milk to thin it out enough. I served it with bacon, green onion, sour cream & shredded cheese. Thanks for sharing, lildebbie! Made & enjoyed for Spring 2009 Pick A Chef.

      Thick and delicious. My potatoes were apparently on the larger side, so I actually had to add some extra ff evaporated milk or it ould have been too thick. I love smoked paprika and it is a must for this soup. No substitutions! Thanx for a wonderful potato soup.
