In a crockpot combine 6-8 cups Chicken base, a sprinkle of parsley, 1 garlic clove minced and 2 T. diced onion. Add 6 cubed potatoes and 1/2 cup carrots. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8. In a blender place 1 box cream cheese and 1/2 of the soup mixture from the crockpot. Blend until smooth. Add back into the crockpot. Cook another 20 minutes. I added sausage right before serving  as well but its totally your choice.
