Fresh Alpine Potato Soup

I have made a lot of soups this winter and this one has become a family favorite! It is full of flavor and easy to make! don't be afraid of the dill, it adds a nice flavor but does not overpower it at all. I am also not a parsley fan but I do like the fresh Italian parsley added to this soup as well. Enjoy!!

Fresh Alpine Potato Soup - from The Sister's Cafe
1 Tb butter or olive oil
1 c chopped onion
1 clove minced garlic
5 cups water
5 cubes chicken bouillon
4 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced
4 carrots, peeled and sliced
2 stalks celery, sliced
1/2 ring Polska Kielbasa sausage, sliced
1 tsp dried dill weed
3 Tb chopped fresh Italian parsley
1/2 tsp pepper

Saute the onion and garlic in butter or olive oil in a 4 quart pot. Then add the water, bouillon, vegetables, and sausage to onion mixture. Bring to a boil and simmer for 25-30 minutes until potatoes are tender. Then add the dill weed, parsley and pepper.
