1 1/2 teaspoons

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!
I did not care for this.I followed the recipe except used chicken broth instead of water.All I could taste was the basil.
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.
My first time making potato soup and everyone in my household loved it! Thanks for this recipe
LOVED IT...so easy...added a little bacon and 5 tbl of four to the milk to make it a little thicker.
This was really good, inexpensive, easy, and quick to make. Very good recipe to have in your arsenal. I made a couple of alterations though. I don't really measure so I think I used more carrots and celery than called for. I made a roux instead of adding the milk and butter straight to the soup. I did not used dill, but chives. Just a personal preference. My four year old loved it. Great recipe!!
