Seat of My Pants Potato Soup

I had a bunch of potatoes and veggies to use up, so I thought I'd make a soup. I get bored looking at recipes for soup though, so I just started chopping and cooking. It was pretty yummy.

1T olive oil
1 small onion, diced, small
1c diced carrot, diced small
3 stalks of celery, diced small
1tsp salt
8 or so small yukon gold potatoes, diced small
2-3c stock (I used turkey)
4T butter
4T flour
1c milk

Saute the onion, carrot, and celery in olive oil for about 10min with the salt, until soft. Add the stock and the potatoes. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a fry pan. Add the flour and whisk for 2-3 minutes, until it starts turning a golden brown. Add the milk slowly, whisking all the time. Cook for a minute or two until thickened. Add to the veggies and broth and whisk together. Cook for about 15-20 minutes, or until the potatoes aren't hard anymore. Be careful not to boil it.

While my stock is super flavorful (thanks, Ina!) the soup was missing something - fresh herbs, I think. Dill or maybe parsley would be a great addition, but I didn't have them on hand. Topping with cheese and/or bacon is encouraged.

Joseph and I both enjoyed this for dinner last night!
