This is a hearty potato soup that tastes like a creamy baked potato. I invented it to please a picky vegetarian daughter who pronounced it 'delicious'. Garnish with chives, shredded cheese or dried dill. Serve with a bread (flour tortillas, pita bread, sourdough or cornbread) and a salad or fruit.

I was very pleased with this recipe. Nice and simple. I left the potatoes a little lumpy when smashing because I didnt want a totally smooth soup.

It was too bland for me. Ended up adding broccoli and cayenne it helped a little.

I find this a great base for a hearty meal. We add just about anything you would add to a baked potato to the soup.

I thought this recipe was sort of bland but made a good starting base. I added some fresh sliced mushrooms carrots for flavor and color and some crumbled bacon. The potatoes should be at least halved before cooking. I also added about a tablespoon of dried dill and a few sprinkles of cinnamon. It was very good thick and filling but I don't think I would make this version again.

Although the recipe was pretty easy we found it rather bland. I added parsley shredded cheese more garlic powder and about 6 strips of crumbled bacon. It was do-able with that. I won't fix this particular recipe again. Sorry.

It was very watery. I feel the cooking techniques are not quite right for this type of recipe. I would not make again.
