4 large potatoes, peeled and rinsed
1 large, diced onion
1 Tablespoon butter
4 celery sticks, diced
2 carrots, peeled and diced
4 cups chicken stock
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped fine
1 teaspoon dill, chopped fine
1 Tablespoon parsley, chopped fine
2 Tablespoons all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste
Optional *Dumplings - not shown in the picture
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup milk
Cut potatoes into small bite sized pieces.
Heat a large soup pot to medium heat, melt butter and fry the onions, celery and carrots for 3-5 minutes.
Add in potatoes and chicken stock with enough water (if needed) to cover potatoes by one inch. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to simmer.
Stir in the freshly chopped dill, thyme and parsley.
Cook for 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
To cream the soup, in a small bowl, use a fork to mix 2 tablespoons of flour and salt with cold milk until no lumps are left. Stir milk mixture into the soup and bring to a boil to thicken soup. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
To make the dumplings, in a bowl combine the flour, egg, salt and 1/4 cup milk. Drop the dough mixture, a teaspoonful at a time into simmering soup. Do not stir until dumplings begin to float.
Optional: Serve with bacon bits and chopped green onions.
