Tonight I created another tasty feast! I even impressed Fiancé who gave this meal an “A+” – so you know it must be good!
I knew I wanted to create some sort of soup tonight for dinner, because it was such a cold and snowy day, but I didn’t know what. I did a little research on some of my favorite recipe websites and then crafted this amazing soup!
- chicken sausage, diced
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- salt and pepper to taste
- 3 cups vegetable broth
- 2 large baked potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 1 can of corn
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
- Shredded cheddar cheese
[This recipe makes 4 servings]
I started off cooking the chicken sausage, you could also use bacon for this step, but I didn’t have any in the house. I used the same sausage I used for my shaved Brussels sprouts from Trader Joe’s. I put it in a pan and let the sausage get hot and a little crispy. Then put the pan aside until the end.
While the sausage was cooking, I sliced up the potatoes.
In a larger pan sauté the onions and garlic until tender. Then add the flour, salt, pepper and mix well. Gradually add the broth.
Bring to a boil and continue to stir.
Next add the milk, potatoes, corn and hot sauce.
Heat everything throughout.
Fiancé wanted his potatoes pretty soft so I covered the pan and let everything get a little more tender. Continue to stir until the soup is ready!
Garnish with the sausage (or bacon)
I wish I had some green onions to top on this too – that would have been a nice addition! Next time! I also sprinkled a little cheddar cheese on top for good measure. Cheddar makes everything better, right?
This is one of the best things I have made in a long time. It might tie for my new favorite thing to eat (and make) alongside my Spicy Thai Peanut Sprouts.
With the addition of the hot sauce, the soup had a little kick, which I enjoyed.
It was the perfect meal on a cold Winter night and it was so easy and quick to make with a few simple ingredients.
