Slow Cooker Parmesan Potato Soup

I don’t know about you, but I love potato soups – all sorts of potato soups. When I made this Parmesan Potato Soup for my family recently, my husband decided that it was his favorite version so far!

To begin, scrub 2 1/2 pounds of russet potatoes (about 8 medium.)

Peel the potatoes and cut them into 3/4 inch pieces. I don’t fully peel the potatoes, because I like the texture that some peel gives the potatoes. You can do whatever you prefer. Place the potatoes in you slow cooker.

Add those to your slow cooker, along with 1 clove of minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of thyme and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and freshly ground black pepper. Pour in a carton (4 cups) of chicken broth. Stir it all together, cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours.

After the soup has cooked, in a measuring cup, measure out 1/2 cup of heavy cream. To that, add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch. Whisk them together until the cornstarch is mixed in and smooth. Add an additional 1 1/2 cup of heavy cream.
