potatoes, peeled and chopped
water to cover
ground black pepper
This was a great base but I did make some changes...I used chicken broth instead of water, carrots instead of celery a little more sour cream and flour to make it thicker, a handful of grated cheese and I also added left over ham. I still garnished with a little bacon, cheese and green onion tops.
I tried this recipe for dinner. It did not turn out the way I thought it would. Instead of being white and creamy, it turned out brown and runny. The soup did not taste as "creamy" as I thought it would. I was really disappointed.
This recipie is a great base for potato soup. I added chives, cumin, tumeric, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and garlic salt to this recipie and it was great. I also substituted starch for flour. I find starch is actually easier to work with than flour and clumps less. I put grated taco cheese and green onion on top. It was great.
I also find that you can fix a thin recipie by adding more corn starch. I had to add 2 more table spoon of starch to get the resipie to the thickness that I desired, but I expected that as I think I made more than the recipie called for.
I read a few of the comments beforehand and frankly, you have to know how to cook to be able to use a recipie. Otherwise you are just practising and the recipie may turn out terrible, but after practice a recipie can be wonderful.
I was very disappointed with this recipe. Potato soup is supposed to be white and creamy. This recipe produced neither. Thanks to the 2tsp of paprika, it looked like I was stirring a pan full of orange vomit. Also, it never thickened. I barely used enough water to cover the veggies. Should it perhaps be drained before adding everything else? I dumped the whole disgusting mess in the disposal and went out to eat. Do yourself a favor and avoid this recipe!
I must say, I don't get the rave reviews on this recipe. This soup really had no flavor, and I even used extra bacon and spices. The soup tasted like potatoes in milk, with some bacon grease mixed in - that was it. My family so disliked this soup, I threw it out rather than waste space in my fridge with leftovers that would never be eaten.
The taste of this soup was not worth the fat and cholestoral consumed.
This recipe is wonderful. I added ham and omitted the celery in my soup and it came out just as creamy and delicious as I expected. I will definitely keep this recipe.
Great recipe - but a little too spicy/peppery even for this Cajun - recipe is clear, but you must follow it closely - just might want to cut the t of pepper to 1/2 t - great soup!!
What I liked about it was the fact that it was very creamy and yet tasted light at the same time! This is the answer to those who love creamy textures but can't stomach the rich taste of cream for long! Will definitely make again!
