Harvest Potato Soup...

It is definitely soup season,  we have been getting our fill this winter, and as I scanned my recipes, I noticed I never posted pictures of this delicious Harvest Soup. So if you are the visual kind, take a peek and give it a whirl!



Ingredients:
1 TBSP butter
1 onion, chopped
1/2 cup green onions, chopped
4 cups chicken broth
4 cups potatoes, diced (any kind, red, yellow, finger, etc)
4 carrots, thinly sliced
2 cups zucchini, sliced
4 cups spinage, torn
s&p to taste
** optional: shreaded chicken (2 breasts in the crock pot; precooked) 

Directions:
In your big pot, melt your butter and then add both of your onions. Cook those over low heat for 5 minutes, covered. Then add your broth, carrots, and potatoes. Simmer those guys for 15 minutes, covered. Next add your zucchini and simmer for 5 more. Then add your spinach and s&P to taste. Let that simmer thoroughly. If you want to add the chicken (all ready cooked), throw that in right at the end with your spinach and let it soak up the flavors. **If you DO add the shredded chicken, you can cook it easily in the crock pot the morning of. I usually just throw 2 breasts in the crock pot, 1/2 cup water and let it cook on high for 4 hours. Then I shred it and throw it into the soup. I also recommend adding more broth to the soup if you use the chicken because the chicken soaks a lot of it up. Also, for the record, I don't measure all the vegetables out, I just eyeball it and it is yummy every time!

Serve with: warm FRENCH BREAD!! This is a great meal in it's self because it has all those hardy veggies, yummy broth, and the chicken for extra protein if you choose to throw it in.

Ok, I'm doing the happy dance!!! Everything is in season so I can totally make this one. Oh, Andrea, thanks for putting spice into life!

Hi Andrea! After 16 days I finally made the soup. I had been a little concerned that it wouldn't work because I didn't have the broth, just chicken seasoning cubes. It turned out fine (delicious) and I can enjoy it all week. Even without the chicken and bread (I was too lazy to walk 20 yards to the market) it was filling and very satisfying. Thanks Andrea and keep them coming!

Yeah Holly! I am glad you gave it a whirl, you have to try the Minestrone, it will give the Harvest Potato a run for it's money! :)
