This is my first instructable on how to make delicious potato soup out of, well, potatoes and things. It's a very simple recipe that can be made with things you have on hand. I was surprised when I made this soup because I just sorta winged it and assumed it would come out like crap, and well I have to say its my favorite soup recipe now! So I hope this tastes good to the people who try to make it! Here's what you'll need:
Potatoes (about 4-6 small ones, eventually 2 cups when pureed)
3 tablespoons finely chopped onions
3 tablespoons canola oil
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons flour
pinch of pepper
1 teaspoon salt

Step 1: Boil Potatoes
Yeah, this step is self explanatory. Leave the skins on for texture if you'd like!
Step 2: Sautee Onions
Pour the oil in a frying pan and keep on medium heat. Add the finely chopped onions and stir frequently until brown.
Step 3: Puree Time!
Now get your food processor out! Add the potatoes in with the onions and puree until the soft creamy mixture has no potato chunks left. Do this until you've run out of potatoes. I chose to leave the skins on for a chunky soup.
Step 4: Potatoes Become Soup!
Take the pureed potato-onion mixture and scoop it into a large pot. Add 2 cups of milk and put on medium heat. Stir it around a little and let it heat up.
Step 5: Add All Other Ingredients
Now mix in the flour, salt, pepper, and rosemary. It helps to use a whisk to get things moving. Keep on medium heat.
When the soup is hot- after about 10 min, serve and enjoy! Add anything else you might like, like chives, bacon, sour cream, or cheese.
