I love the idea of this soup, but could not bring myself to make it as written. Six bouillon cubes would make this waaayyyy too salty and not add much to the overall flavor. Instead, I used low sodium chicken broth in place of the water called for and NO bouillon cubes at all. As for the onions and celery, to create a more complex flavor, I sauteed them in a little bit of extra virgin olive oil (and added 2 cloves fresh, minced garlic), then added the potatoes and continued on with the recipe as written. To lighten this up, I often add whole milk in place of the half and half. I have also done a roux to thicken it, using skim milk. I also often add fresh, sliced mushrooms and on occasion, whole, sweet kernel corn for just a slightly different taste and texture to the potato soup.
