Let's Make It
1) Wash and lightly dry veggies. Chop the following: carrot into 1/4" slices, potato into 1/2" diced cubes, celery into 1" long strips, and parsley into a fine mince. Chop up any optional items now also.
2) Lightly saute the carrots, celery, potato, and any optional ingredients in butter. This is to bring out the flavors. Cook on medium heat for approx. 5 minutes or until potatoes start to brown.
3) Add the stock, water and all the other ingredients except the parsley into a saucepan (pot). Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer (just below boiling) for approx. 10-15 min or until potatoes and carrots are fork tender. Stir every 5 min. Add more stock if necessary to just cover the top of the veggies. Remove from heat, add half the parsley and use the other half to garnish. Plate and serve! Bon appetit!
