  1. Combine the potatoes, carrot, celery, onion, and salt in a 2-quart pot; pour enough water over the potato mixture to just cover. Bring the water to a boil, and cook until the potatoes are soft but not mushy, about 25 minutes. Drain about 1/4 of the remaining water from the mixture, taking care to not lose any of the vegetables. Stir the milk into the vegetable mixture with the basil, dill, and butter. Season with salt and black pepper to serve.

Great flavor in this very easy to follow simple potato soup. I love the dill mixed with the basil. Very light taste. I did not add the butter, did not think it was necessary, and I added a bit more celery because I love celery - leaves and all. Very tasty for a chilly day meal!

Very easy and good! My family loved it! I did substitute chicken broth for water.

I am calling this magic soup. It uses simple and inexpensive ingredients and is very filling but is low in fat. The real magic in this soup is how such simple ingredients create such full flavors. It tastes like it took loads of ingredients and hours of work to prepare. I made it exactly as the recipe was written and I wouldn't change a thing.

Very good! I too use chicken broth instead of water. Before serving I use a stick blender to break up some of the potatoes, makes the soup a bit thicker. As another reviewer does, I save the bacon to top the individual bowls, along with chives and grated cheddar cheese to garnish.

This soup is simple to make, cheap and good! What more could you ask for? The only changes I made were adding some dried parsley (because I'm trying to use it up!) and thickening it a little with a flour slurry. I just really wish I had some crackers on hand! Thanks for the recipe!
