Potato Soup

Hi guys, I have an easy potato soup recipe for you.  I looked at several recipes before I just came up with this.  Most recipes used flour as a thickening agent but in my recipe I just use the starch from the potatoes to thicken the soup.

This was a big hit with my family, and there was no leftovers which is always nice.  I hope you give this potato soup a try and let me know how you liked it.

Steps:

In a Dutch oven pot over medium heat add in the oil and let that heat up.  Then add in the onion and cook until soften.   Then add in the minced garlic and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes stirring often.

Then add in the potatoes along with the broth and water.  Let this cook until potatoes are tender.

Remove half of the potatoes and set aside.  Then using an immersion blender blend the soup until creamy.  Add back in the potatoes and give it a good stir.

Then add in the cream and sour cream and cheese and give it a good stir.  Then taste for salt and pepper at this time.

Cook for another 20 minutes and soup is done.

Note:  I did not use flour to thicken the soup.  I let the starch of the potatoes do that.

 

Serve with toppings of your choice
