Cheddar Potato Soup Recipe

    8 Servings


  • 4 cups Red Potato, cubed
  • 3 tablespoons Butter
  • 1 large Onion, diced
  • 3 large Carrots, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper, freshly ground
  • 2 cups Vegetable Broth, or chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/2 cups Milk, reduced fat is fine
  • 1/2 cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded


  1. In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add onions, celery, carrots, and garlic. Saute for approximately 7 to 10 minutes, or until vegetables begin to soften.  Stir in broth, potatoes, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook partially covered for approximately 30 to 40 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
  2. Lightly spoon flour into a measuring cup; level with knife. Place flour in a small bowl and gradually add milk while constantly whisking to combine. When well blended, stir into potato mixture. Cook uncovered for an additional 15 to 20 minutes, or until soup is thick and creamy.
  3. Ladle soup into individual bowls and sprinkle with cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
