This made enough for me to have 3 meals. When I make it for my family I will double it.
4-5 baby carrots, diced
1 celery rib diced
Few shakes of dried onion (it's what I had on hand)
Saute in 2 tsp butter until veggies start to soften.
1 can low-sodium chicken broth
2 large baking potatoes, cubed
(The potatoes weren't covered with the broth so I just put a lid on the pot to boil/steam them at the same time.)
Once the potatoes are tender, mash them with a potato masher - it should still have some lumps, but most of the broth will be absorbed.
Add: milk - until desired consistency. I like my potato soup pretty thick.
Add: 2 oz. light cream cheese
small handful of grated cheddar
Heat just until everything is melted and hot.
