Pretty Damn Ghastly Potato Soup could be #Vegetarian or even #Vegan #GF

Oldest Grandson has joined the Navy and has been spending some time with us before he goes. He asked for potato soup, so I made some.

At the same time, Charlie found a recipe for potato soup that was very different from mine and suggested I try it, so I did.

It isn't really pretty damn ghastly, but we all agreed that we like mine better. The one I made comes from the Electric Consumer magazine and is called German Heritage Cheesy Potato Soup. Follow the link to the recipe. It looks like this:

If you leave out the ham, it's vegetarian. If you also leave out the cheese or use vegan "cheese", it's vegan.

My potato soup is NOT vegan, but it could be, and it IS vegetarian and gluten-free. You may be sure I'll make it before Oldest Grandson leaves.

Grandmar's Potato Soup


  • potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • salted water
  • onion powder or cooked onion or shallots
  • milk
  • butter or vegan margarine
  • parsley

Cook the potatoes in salted water for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Drain most of the water, unless it's cooked down until the potatoes are barely covered, or maybe even sticking up a little.

Mash the potatoes a little, leaving some chunks.

Add milk and margarine (or butter) and bring back to heat, being careful not to boil it. Add salt to taste.

Really easy, really simple, really quick, really good.

I'm posting at my own blog today about French Toast.
