DIRECTIONS

  • Start boiling potatoes.
  • In a soup pot, saute the onions and celery over medium heat for about 5-8 minutes, until it is soft.
  • Add the garlic and cook for another 2 or 3 minutes.
  • Add the flour and stir constantly for a minute.
  • Stir in the milk and vegetable broth; bring to a slow simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • Add paprika and season with salt and pepper.
  • 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.
  • Mash half of the potatoes and stir them into the soup. Simmer for another five minutes.
  • Add the remaining potato chunks, and adjust seasonings to taste - I added a bit more pepper and another dash of smoked paprika.
  • Serve with whatever toppings you like - bacon, fried onions, grated cheese, scallions, etc.
