About this recipe: A super-easy soup recipe. Potatoes, onions, celery and cheese are simmered together in milk. If you like a thicker soup, break up the potatoes whilst simmering. Serve with crusty bread.

  1. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Saute the onions and celery in the butter for 5 to 10 minutes or until tender.
  2. Stir in the water and potatoes, bring to the boil and then simmer until the potatoes are tender. Add the cheese and stir until melted.
  3. In a separate small bowl, combine the flour and the milk and stir well until the flour is mostly dissolved. Pour this into the soup slowly, stirring constantly, until soup has thickened, about 5 minutes. Garnish with the parsley.
