Tasty Tuesday: Country Potato Soup

One of the ways that I stretch our budget is by having at least one meatless dinner a week. Recently I discovered this Country Potato Soup recipe in one of my cookbooks and thought it would be a great addition to my list of meatless dishes.

Don't let the basic ingredients of this soup fool you because it still is tasty and full of flavor. The onions, pepper and chives add a lot to it and the sour cream makes it just a little bit creamy. In fact my husband who is not a potato soup fan declared this one to be "pretty good." And I think it goes perfectly with Red Lobster Cheese Biscuits.

Country Potato Soup
3 c. diced, peeled potatoes
1/2- 1 c. carrots
1/2 c. onion, chopped
2 c. water
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. chopped chives
1 c. sour cream
2 Tbsp. flour
2 c. milk

Combine potatoes, carrots, onion, water, bouillon cubes, pepper and salt in a large saucepan. Cover and cook for about 20 min. or until potatoes are tender but not mushy. Add 1 c. milk, heat. Mix sour cream, flour, chives and remaining 1 c. milk. Stir mixture into soup gradually. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until thickened.
