Rated as 4.17 out of 5 Stars

"Here's an easy, thick potato soup. Potatoes are boiled with celery and onion and then reduced to a rich, creamy texture. I use one per cent milk, but any milk should work fine."

I felt the soup needed more flavor. And the consistency was more like soupy mashed potatos. It was quick to make but not my favorite potato soup.
