Easy Potato Soup


1 large potato, per person
1/4 cup chopped celery, per person (include leaves)
1/4 cup chopped onion, per person
1/4-1/2 cup milk or 1/4-1/2 cup half-and-half or 1/4-1/2 cup cream
Salt and pepper, to taste

Peel and cube potatoes.
Put in a saucepan along with the onions and celery.
Add water, but don’t quite cover the vegetables.
Bring to a boil, lower heat, cover and simmer for 25 minutes, or until all of the vegetables are very tender.

Using the back of a large spoon, crush the potatoes, but don’t mash them —  you want chunks left.

Add enough milk or cream to thin to desired thickness. I use 2% milk, so I added a little salted butter for flavor. Add salt & pepper to taste but don’t over salt! You’ll lose the flavor of the simple ingredients. I used garlic chives as a garnish.

“Even though this planet is round, there are just too many spots where you can find yourself hanging onto the edge, unless there’s some space, some place to take a breather for a while.” –Gloria Naylor
