* If you don’t have an immersion blender, divide the soup into portions and use a blender to process until smooth.
1 quart vegetable broth
2 cups water
1 large (1 pound) russet potato
8 medium-large (1 1/2 pounds) fresh carrots
1 small onion
1/2 cup 2% or whole milk
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and white pepper to taste
1. In 4-quart or larger Dutch oven or soup pot, combine broth and water. Bring to a boil over high heat. While broth is heating, peel and cut the vegetables into bite size pieces and add to the pot as you chop. When all vegetables are in the pot, reduce heat to medium high and cook for 10 more minutes, or until largest vegetable pieces are tender.
2. Remove from heat. Using a handheld immersion blender* process the soup until smooth. Stir in spices and adjust seasoning with salt and white pepper to taste. Serve immediately.

What you're saying..
I purchased Cheap Fast Good, and received it last week. I started cooking from the book last Wednesday. With the exception of the ham I purchased for Christmas Day, I have cooked from this book 1-2 times per day. Let me say, this is the best cookbook I have, and has recipes that my family loves!!! Thank you so much for the cookbook. I'm hoping I can purchase Desperation Dinners soon, and if it is anything like Cheap Fast Good, it will be another favorite.
