Meal under $10: Chunky potato soup


Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 4 for approx. $4.00

  • 4 medium russet or Idaho potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 cups celery, chopped (include the leaves)
  • 2 cups white or yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cups of chicken broth
  • 1 to 2 cups milk (I used 1 1/2 cups of 2%)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Toppings of your choice (not included in pricing for the soup)


Wash potatoes, peel and cube. Put potatoes, celery and onion in saucepan. Add chicken broth. (Sometimes I add a little water, you want the vegetables mostly covered but not totally). Bring to a boil, lower the heat, cover and simmer for about 25 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Using a potato masher (I bought mine at the $ store), coarsely crush the potatoes but don’t mash-you want chunks. Add enough milk to thin to your desired thickness. Season with salt and pepper.
