2 tablespoons dried parsley
2 tablespoons dried chives

Put the olive oil, garlic, onions and carrots in a large dutch oven.


Saute over medium heat until tender.


Add the diced potatoes and the celery.


Add the chicken broth. Stir.


Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes and celery are tender. About 20 minutes.


Add the evaporated milk. Stir.
