Purple Potato Soup

It actually snowed in Salt Lake today! It didn't stick on the ground, but it was definitely a day for soup! I love creamy soup on cool, rainy & snowy days. We had some purple potatoes from the farmer's market we thought would be cool to try in a soup. It left just a tint of purple, and was delicious!

  • 6-8 small - med purple potatoes
  • 3 carrots
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1/4 cup chopped white onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp. dried parsley
  • 1 cup plain soymilk
  • 1/8 c. flour
  • salt & pepper to taste

Dice potatoes (leaving well-washed skin on) and carrots. Place in large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to med/low. In a small skillet, add heat oil and add onion and garlic. Saute until onions turn clear and add to soup. Dice celery , add to soup. In a small bowl, whisk together flour and soymilk, and add to soup. Stir everything together. When potatoes are soft, soup is done! Serve with toasted bread, and warm your tummy after a wet and cold day!

Hi there LizzyQ, thanks for visiting my blog. I love yours! That soup looks yummy. My new hubby just flew up to Salt Lake City today, wish I could send him some of that to keep him warm!

This is a great recipe! I made it as stated a couple weeks ago and liked it alot. Tonight I added 2 veggie bullion cubes, mushrooms sauteed with the onions and garlic and some chopped collards added near the end. Yum! Thanks so much for this recipe!
