This is my first year taking part in the Food Blogger Love roundup, organized by Allison of The PinterTest Kitchen!
The point of this yearly event is for food bloggers to shine a spotlight on another food blogger and to point their followers to the blog.
I was paired up with Audrey from ThatRecipe.com. I really love the way her blog is organized -- it's super easy to find recipes by type, ingredient, and even dietary restriction. I found a great soup recipe, perfect for the rainy winter weather we've been having in Southern California.
Make sure to check out Audrey's blog as well as her Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter sites!
4 cups diced potatoes
1 cup diced onions
1 quart vegetable stock
1 cup diced celery
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 cup milk
Salt and pepper to taste
Cheddar cheese (if desired)
Add potatoes, onions, celery, and parsley to a medium pot. Add stock to the pot until veggies are covered and there's about an extra inch of liquid (use water if you run out of stock).
Cover pot and bring soup to a boil, then reduce to simmering. Cook until potatoes are soft, 12-15 minutes, then turn off the heat.
If you want a chunky soup, mash with a potato masher. If you want a smooth soup (like I did), use a blender or an immersion blender to blend until smooth.
Stir in milk and red pepper flakes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add cheese if you want, and additional parsley if desired.
