Potato Cheese Soup

Yesterday I was scrounging for a dinner idea with the limited ingredients I had on hand, and I made this soup. It turned out yummy. Serves 2. For a complete meal, serve with a salad and bread :)

Potato Cheese Soup

1 large baking potato, peeled and cubed
1/2 carrot, peeled and chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 cup chicken broth
dash of salt
3/4 cup milk (or half and half, or heavy cream)
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon parsley (dried or fresh)
dash of pepper
1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1) Boil potato, carrot, onion, broth, and salt together until potatoes are done.
2) Pour into blender and add the remaining ingredients except for the cheese and blend.
3) Pour back into pot on medium and stir in the cheese.
4) Done!
