This nice creamy soup really hits the spot...whether you serve it by itself, with sandwiches or as a first course. My family enjoys it often here on our acre in the country.


  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2-1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 pound carrots, sliced
  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Shredded Swiss cheese and minced fresh parsley, optional


  1. In a large saucepan, saute onion in butter until tender. Add the broth, carrots and potatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Remove from the heat; cool slightly.
  2. Transfer to a blender; cover and process until blended. Return to pan. Stir in the milk, salt and pepper; heat through (do not boil). Garnish with cheese and parsley if desired.
