As written, this recipe is a soup full of vegetable chunks in a thickened broth. You can also, however, puree it after cooking using an immersion blender for a creamy variation. Both variations will warm you up on a cold day.


  • 6 potatoes, peeled and cut into ½" cubes (2½ lb.)
  • 2 medium onions, diced
  • 2 carrots, thinly sliced
  • 2 celery stalks, thinly sliced
  • 2 (14½ oz.) cans fat-free, low sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp. basil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1½ cups evaporated skim milk

Optional garnishes*:

  • Fresh celery leaves


  1. Combine first 8 ingredients in a 4 1/2-quart slow cooker.
