This soup has such an amazing smell and flavor! It is one of my favorite soup recipes! It says it serves four, but I think it serves more like six. It's a lot of soup.
6 russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 leek bulbs, white and light green parts only, chopped and well washed
2 onions, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 carrots, sliced
2 celery stalks, chopped
4 chicken bouillon cubes
1 Tbls. fresh parsley or 1 teas. dried parsley
5 Cups water
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
1. preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray 2 baking sheets with cooking spray. Place potatoes, leeks and onions on prepared sheets and spray veggies lightly with more cooking spray.
Roast veggies, turning frequently, until golden brown, about 25-35 minutes.
2. Place roasted veggies in a large saucepan. Add garlic, carrots, celery, bouillon cubes, parsley, and water. Bring to a boil over med-high heat; reduce heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until all veggies are tender, about 15 minutes.
