Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 12-16 ounces (340g) andouille sausage, cut into 1/4" rounds
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 large carrot, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2-2 ½ pounds (906g- 1130g) baby potatoes, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 3 cups (710ml) chicken broth or stock
  • teaspoon cajun seasoning
  • 2 cups (475ml) milk
  • ½ cup (120ml) heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons flour
Instructions
  1. In a large pot or dutch oven heat the olive oil over medium heat. Cook the sausage, onion, carrot and celery, until onion starts to soften. Stir in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add the potatoes, broth, and cajun seasoning. Bring to a simmer, cover, and cook until potatoes start to become tender (about 15 minutes).

  2. Stir in the milk. Combine the cream and flour until smooth and stir into the soup. Simmer for another 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender and soup has thickened.

Recipe Notes
  1. Regular russet potatoes can be used in place of the baby potatoes. Peel, wash and cut into bite sized pieces. Reduce the flour to 3 tablespoons.
  2. If you like your soup thicker then create a slurry with cornstarch and water and stir in at the end. Cook until thickens.
  3. If you would like to make this gluten-free replace the flour with 2 tablespoons cornstarch.
