Skin-On Potato Soup

Skin-On Potato Soup created by Mistress of Tea

I like potato skins so I figured, why not make a potato soup that incorporates the yummy skins!! This is what I came up with during a cold and lazy Sunday afternoon. It stores well. I have not frozen it (I imagine it would work for OAMC), but I did refrigerate the leftovers and reheated it twice for lunch and it turned out great! It's also low-fat if you eliminate the bacon :)

ingredients

directions

  • Bring about 6 cups of water to boil in a large pot.
  • Put potatoes into boiling water and cover for about 12-15 minutes.
  • Add onions and carrots (and garlic if using fresh) to water, turn down heat to medium and let cook for 6 minutes.
  • Drain water and return vegetables to pot.
  • Mash about half of the potatoes, I like mine chunky but if you want it smoother mash about 3/4.
  • Add in cream of celery, chicken broth, milk (and garlic powder, if using).
  • Let simmer until soup reaches desired thickness, about 10-12 minutes for me.
  • Serve into bowls.
  • Sprinkle with cheddar cheese, scallions and low fat bacon bits (my fiance uses fresh bacon and it does really add to the soup but also the calories lol!).

    I made for Spring '08 PAC. Used 7 medium potatoes, half red onion, 1 carrot, some broccoli stems, homemade soup and broth. Forgot to put the cheddar cheese on top! It needed salt and pepper, and I think half and half or evap. milk would give it more flavor than skim. I pureed the batch bcz we like it smooth. Won't post my pic bcz yours is prettier. All liked it. Would make a bigger batch next time!
