Recipe: Mom’s Comforting Potato Soup

Ingredients:

2 large russet potato, peeled and cut as for mashed potatoes
½ cup coarsely chopped onion
½  cup fresh or frozen peas (optional)
2 cups milk
2 tsp. butter
salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Cover potato and onion with water and cook until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. (If using peas, add to the pot for the last 5 minutes of cooking time.) Drain carefully, so the onions don't go down the drain. Add milk and butter and heat gently until milk is warm. Add salt to taste and a good grinding of fresh black pepper.
