  1. Combine the potatoes, carrot, celery, onion, and salt in a 2-quart pot; pour enough water over the potato mixture to just cover. Bring the water to a boil, and cook until the potatoes are soft but not mushy, about 25 minutes. Drain about 1/4 of the remaining water from the mixture, taking care to not lose any of the vegetables. Stir the milk into the vegetable mixture with the basil, dill, and butter. Season with salt and black pepper to serve.

I followed the recipe but it was just not my cup of tea. You do have to be very careful of how much water you put. Best to put little and gradually add than pouring out and losing vegetables.

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 flav...

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 bac...
