Mushroom Potato Soup

As usual, my greatest and the tastiest creations come out at times that the refrigerator is near empty and I get creative. Also seems that things come out much better when I make up a recipe rather then use one from a magazine!

I probably shouldn’t tut my own horn, but…tut-tut!!


4 large red potatoes
6 oz baby portobello mushrooms
1/4 cup chopped yellow onion
1/2 cup shredded carrots
2 garlic cloves
3 tbs olive oil
3 cups vegetable stock
2/3 cup water
1/8 cup of minced fresh parsley
1 tbs minced fresh dill weed
salt, pepper

1. Preheat 2 tbs of olive oil in the small pot
2. Grate the garlic into the oil, add chopped onion, saute until transparent
3. Add the shredded carrots and add the other tablespoon of olive oil

4. Add the thinly sliced mushrooms, saute for about 5 minutes

5. Chop the potatoes into about 1/4 inch cubes, add to the pot
6. Add the vegetable stock and water. If the potatoes are barely covered you may need to add another cup of stock.

7. Bring to boil then reduce the heat to medium to medium low.
8. Add the parsley, dill weed, salt and pepper

9. Cook until the potatoes are completely cooked, about 30-35 minutes

    I have a big bag of potatoes on the counter going bad, I should make this.

    I still can’t believe our first party had over 300 links. I have a special give away planned for linkers this week.

    I would love it if you would grab the bacon time party button for your collection of link parties since it will run every Friday evening through Sunday night.

    Thanks again, hope to see you soon.

I love hearing from all of you so please leave a comment! I do my absolute best to answer all the comments.
