Tired of my recipes yet?? Lol. Okay, I didn't name this recipe myself, but it's definitely aptly named. It's so thick and delicious! Perfect Winter comfort food, especially served with crusty bread.
The BEST Baked Potato Soup Ever! (Makes 4-6 servings)
2 medium potatoes (about 2 cups chopped) 2 Tablespoons soy margarine (oil might work too, but I'm not sure) 1/2-1 cup diced white onion 2 Tablespoons flour 4 cups chicken broth 2 cups water 1/4 cup cornstarch 1 cup instant mashed potatoes 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 1/2 teaspoon basil 1/8 teaspoon thyme 1 cup soy or rice milk shredded cheddar soy cheese, to garnish
1. Wash potatoes thoroughly and microwave until tender. (I poked them with a fork first and it took 10 1/2 minutes on HIGH in my microwave) 2. If you would like you can always bake in a 400 degree oven for one hour or until done. 3. As the potatoes are cooling, melt your margarine in a large saucepan and saute your onions until light brown. 4. Add in your flour to make a roux. 5. Add in your chicken broth, water, cornstarch, instant mashed potatoes and spices and bring to a boil. 6. Reduce your heat and simmer for about 5 minutes. 7. Take your cooled potatoes and peel off the skin and chop up into desired pieces. 8. Add in your chopped up potatoes and the soy or rice milk to your soup and bring it back to a boil. 9. Reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes or until it is thick. 10. Garnish with soy cheddar cheese. 11. ENJOY!
