Potato soup

Please note: This soup is exactly what the title indicates – it has a very strong potato flavor. Feel free to play with the spices or vegetables if you wish to kick it up a notch.

  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tsp finely chopped celery leaves
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried parsley 
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
