Kitchen experiment: Potato soup

My mother asked me to make potato soup. I looked up some recipes, but they all seemed to use things we don’t have, like chicken broth. (Speaking of which, did you know that if you opened a can of it three years after it expires, it’s congealed? Shocking!)

So this is my attempt to make potato soup with a basic recipe outline and a vague idea of what my mother wants.

2 quarts broth, any kind (or 3 tbsp bouillon + 2 quarts [8 cups] water); I used turkey because it’s what we had

4 large potatoes, chopped (6-ish cups, maybe?)

1 yellow onion, diced

1 red pepper, chopped

4 stalks celery, sliced

~1 1/2 tbsp. minced garlic

6-ish tbsp. butter

Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Melt butter in large pot on medium-low heat
  1. Mix vegetables, potato, salt, pepper, and garlic in large bowl.
  2. Cook potato mix, stirring occasionally, until onions are clear. (This may need to be done in two batches, depending on the size of your pot.)
  3. Add broth; cover and simmer on low heat until potatoes are soft.
