I’m sick, so soup?

Posted on March 26, 2014. Filed under: Dining | Tags: , , , |

When I’m sick, I want two things, flat Sprite from a bottle (it’s weird, I know) and potato soup. Normally I’ll get the cans of Cambell’s chunky bacon and potato soup and call it a day. But, for some reason, in my congested haze, I decided I HAD to make my own soup. What started as just using a recipe from The Pioneer Woman Cooks, ended up being a soup I made all on my own. I wasn’t going to change her recipe, but I forgot the bacon and only bought half the amount of broth I needed, so I had to improvise. My improvise ended up being a bottle of New Belgium 1554 black Lager, and it totally worked. So, here is my recipe for Beer Potato Soup!


Beer Potato Soup

6 potatoes, chopped
4 carrots, chopped
1 yellow onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, smashed and chopped
4 pieces of celery, chopped4 oz vegetable broth
1 12 oz bottle of beer
1 cup milk
3 tbsp flour
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup shredded parmesean
Seasonings: salt, black pepper, red pepper, ground mustard, paprika, parsley

  1. Saute the carrots, onion, garlic and celery with all of the seasonings in a large pan with olive oil, until the onion is translucent.
  2. Add the potatoes, and saute, adding more paprika.
  3. After about 5 minutes, add the broth and beer and bring to a boil. Cover and let boil, stiring every few moments until the potatoes are cooked through.
  4. Whisk the flour and the milk together then add it into the soup, making sure to incorporate.
  5. Take about 2/3 of the soup out of the pot and add it to a blender, or a food processor, and blend until smooth. Add it back into the rest of the soup. Add the cheese and the cream, then taste.
  6. Tear the kale and stir in
  7. Add more seasoning if needed, then finish with siracha, mixing in at the last moment. Serve with shredded cheddar and your choice of bread.
