Miss Murder's Easy Crock Pot Potato Soup Recipe

I thought we could all use something warm and gratifying today. So I’m going to share some comfort in a bowl.
There’s something soothing about washing and dicing potatoes and carrots. It feels like going back to a simpler time. This is also a wonderful meal if you’re on a budget, and it’s also a meal that begs to be shared with a neighbor. Add it into your weekly rotation and enjoy.

You’ll make this in a crock pot, so it will take you fifteen minutes to peel, dice, and assemble the ingredients. Then you’ll walk away. It’s a perfect meal.

Four Russet Potatoes

2 sliced carrots (or a handful of baby carrots)

Peel and dice the potatoes, carrots, and onion. Put in the crock pot. Add the broth and spices. Cook on low for 6-8 hours/high for 3-6 hours, or until the potatoes are tender.

When you have half an hour left of cook time, whisk the 1/4 cup of flour into the milk, add it to the soup, and stir. Cook for another half hour. Then either eat as-is, or mash the soup with a potato masher to smooth it out. You can also puree it in a blender for a finer texture.
Dish out and top with cheese and bacon bits, if you desire. Then comes the most important part: enjoy.
