Potato Soup For The Soul


Potato Soup For The Soul

D3300B1F-C512-475D-8C90-510C9063FC55Are you looking for a supper idea?

Are you in need of some comfort food on a cold winters night?

Try this wonderful soup. It is a recipe I received from my sweet German friend when we lived in Germany for three years.

Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture when I made it yesterday, but the next time I do make it, I will be sure to edit this recipe and add it then.

Potato Soup

This recipe makes enough for about 2 people


3 c water

5 small potatoes (peeled and diced)

2 medium size carrots (peeled and diced)

1/2 tsp salt (or enough for your taste)

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp parsley

3 beef frank hot dogs, cut into small pieces (any meat will work, especially ham, but I like it the way Heike made it with hotdogs)

1/2 cup all purpose flour (enough to thicken water into a gravy)


In a medium sauce pan boil your potatoes, carrots, and spices all together. When they are soft, add diced hotdogs (or meat of your choice). Once the hotdogs are cooked, thicken water into a gravy base with your all purpose flour.

When this is prepared as a meal, serve with grilled Panini sandwiches, chips, or salad.

Lastly, enjoy your comfort soup! It promises to not only warm your body, but it will warm your heart and soul as well.
