This is a very basic potato soup recipe for 2, one I have used for years. It’s a surprisingly quick recipe that uses very basic ingredients. If desired, you can use chicken stock for the water for a richer flavor.
It’s simple, inexpensive and delicious…just like Grandma’s.
2 medium potatoes -- diced
1/2 medium onion -- diced
1 stalk celery -- diced
4 ounces ham, diced -- optional
3/4 Cup water or chicken stock
1 Tablespoon flour
1 cup half and half -- or heavy cream or whole milk
Ham scraps, diced (optional)
Cook potato, celery and onion in water or stock until tender, about 20 minutes. Add flour to 1/4 cup of half and half, stir well and add to pan with remaining liquid. Heat until bubbly; cook 1 minute more. Season with nutmeg. Ham scraps can be added if desired.
