DIRECTIONS:

Add chopped potatoes, water, salt and thyme to a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Continue cooking until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, mince the other veggies. Melt butter in a large pot over medium-low. Add minced veggies and saute over medium heat until tender, about 15 minutes.

Add the flour to the veggie/butter mixture, and stir for about 30 seconds over medium heat.

Add the milk 1/2 cup at a time, allowing mixture to thicken each time before adding more.

When all milk has been added, allow mixture to thicken over medium heat.

Add potatoes and all cooking water to the veggie/milk mixture.

Season, to taste, with additional salt/pepper and dried thyme.
