Hearty Potato Soup

I picked a theme as part of the blogging marathon # 61 this week that is based on 'Taste of home - Top 100 recipes of 2015'. I wanted to go with the baking theme for all the three days until I landed on this soup recipe. The person who contributed this recipe seems to have grown on a farm in Holland and mentions that the original recipe uses bacon and heavy cream. Though she has come up with probably a humble version of it, this filling and everyday kinda soup doesn't compromise in the flavor department. I think this is the first soup recipe where I didn't need to do any tweaking to suit our tastes and the other adult at home really enjoyed this hearty,  piping hot soup.  

2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 carrot, chopped 
2 celery ribs, chopped
2 & 1/2 cups water
1 small onion, chopped
2 tbsp. butter / olive oil
2 tbsp. all purpose flour
1 cup milk + extra if needed
Salt & pepper to taste
* Cook potatoes, carrots and celery in water until tender. Scoop out the cooked vegetables using a slotted spoon and keep them aside. And reserve the liquid too.
* Saute onion in butter until tender. Stir in the flour, salt and pepper gradually adding milk. If the mixture becomes lumpy at any point, just pass through a fine sieve. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook until it thickens. Gently stir in the cooked vegetables. Add the reserved liquid as needed to reach the desired consistency. (I had to add extra liquid here.)
