This cream of potato soup recipe, akaKartoffelcremesuppe, is SO delicious! Give it a try when you want something easy but special. Topped with cheese, it's wunderbar! This one is granddaughter inspired ... thanks, Alana!
Now, this is not a traditional German soup, but rather a soup created by an Oma for her granddaughter, but with German-loved ingredients and methods. :) Cream of Potato Soup! Wunderbar :)
Alana's Cream of Potato Soup Recipe
3 lb potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 stalks celery, finely diced
½ onion, finely diced
1 parsnip, peeled and cubed
4 cups chicken stock
¼ cup butter
¼ cup flour
4 cups milk (preferably whole milk)
2 tsp salt
pepper and nutmeg
Put the prepared vegetables into a large soup pot.
Add chicken stock and bring to boil.
Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for about 25 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Cool slightly.
Use an immersion blender to puree the soup. You can use a blender, but be careful since the soup is hot.
To make the roux, in a smaller pot, melt butter. Stir in the flour and whisk until smooth. Slowly add the milk and continue stirring until the roux thickens. Add salt and stir.
Pour the roux into the pureed potato soup. Stir and bring to simmer. Simmer for several minutes to thicken soup.
Season with additional salt, pepper, and nutmeg if desired.
Makes 8 servings.
Like the soup above? You'll love looking at and making more of Oma's soups. All so quick and easy!
What makes these soups so wunderbar? They bring back such wonderful memories of my Mutti's kitchen. So, of course, I had to write my own soup e-cookbook to share with my grandchildren. I know you'll LOVE it, too! There are 84 full-color pages filled with step-by-step instructions and hints. Take a quick peek ...
Sharing these soup recipes from my Mutti and Oma to my own young grandchildren ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our German heritage :)
A bit of this and a bit of that ...
You can use water and bouillon cubes to make the chicken stock. Vegetarian? Use vegetable stock instead.
Sprinkle each bowl of soup with shredded cheddar cheese.
Replace 1 cup of milk with 1 cup of 5% cream for an extra creamy potatoe soup recipe.
I love that Alana inspired me to make this creamy soup. The first time she tried it, her comment was, "Oma, this is my new favourite!"
If you would like another easy potato soup, but this time traditional German potato soup that's chunky-ier, check out my homemade potato soup ... just like Oma made!
We, Germans, especially from the northern part of German, LOVE our potatoes. You'll find all sorts of easy potato recipes on this website.
Germany and its Potatoes
Potatoes were brought to Germany in the 1700's but not widely accepted. In fact, it's said that Frederick the Great gave the farmers potatoes to plant.
They, in turn, threw these strange tubers to the dogs. The farmers then reasoned that because the dogs refused to touch them, they couldn't be good.
But, my, how things changed! Germany became one of the world's largest producers of potatoes. There are now so many varieties available in German stores.
I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.
Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.
PS: Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.
PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales ,and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look.
