Serves: 6-8
Ingredients
  • 6 potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 carrots, thinly sliced
  • 4 cups chicken broth (or vegetable broth to make vegetarian)
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1¼ cups cream or half-and-half (or low fat milk for light version)
  • real bacon bits, optional
Instructions
  1. Combine first potatoes, onion, carrots,broth, basil, parsley, salt, and pepper in crockpot.
  2. Cover and cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours or LOW for 6-7 hours or until vegetables are tender.
  3. Mash vegetables with a potato masher, until you achieve desired texture. I left a couple chunks, knowing my family likes a chunkier soup.
  4. Stir together flour and half-and-half or low fat milk and then slowly stir into crockpot.
  5. Cover and cook 30 minutes longer or until hot. If desired, sprinkle bacon bits over each serving.
