Everyone I have fed this soup to really love it and it really is easy to make. Kids seem to really love it. I make this at a middle school I work at and the kids really eat it up. Read More

I increased this recipe from 8 to 12 servings and ended up with a LOT of soup. And that's fine--I'm a soup maniac. This wasn't quite as good as another potato soup recipe I tried from this website but was still excellent. I used this recipe to inaugurate my new food processor which works great. If you still don't have one consider buying one! It sure beats chopping all those vegetables when you are in a hurry! I picked this recipe because I had all of the ingredients without a trip to the store. Without any added spice to speak of I expected a soup that was a little bland. Surprisingly it was very tasty. Thanks for the submission! Read More
