This was some great soup! Just one note; The recipe says to add the garlic cloves to the pot....should they be roasted with the potatoes? I roasted them and the soup was delicious! Read More

It's okay. Nothing great. It is though fairly easy to make. A good last resort if there's nothing else around. Read More

Thought this was was really good. I think it would be even better the longer it sat but it didn't have time to sit very long before it was all gone. Even my son the picky eater ate 2 bowls. Personally i didnt put it in a blender til smooth. I used a potato masher, left everything in the pot and mashed it up some in the pot. I used larger chunks of potato so i was able to just mash those up into smaller ones. Topped it off with light cheddar, bacon bits and chives. I didnt hold any of the potatos back in reserve. I didnt even use any oil as it said to do so i could cut the fat count down further. Great recipe and great base for other things. Thanks. Read More

I've made this twice & I really like it. I added the garlic to the potatoes & roasted them too. This time I just mashed the potatoes so it would be a little bit chunky and added some ham and colby/jack cheese. YUM! Don't forget a nice loaf of crusty bread! Read More

Loaded with flavor. Easy up on the milk for garlic mashpotatoes then add milk to any leftovers to complete this as a soup. Nice and hearty! Read More

This is a great soup for such a simple recipe! It's even easier when using the potato masher instead of a blender (less clean-up too). I always end up using at least 4 cups of chicken broth but it's really up to your preference for how thick you want your soup. Definitely roast your garlic in the pan with the potatoes (I always throw in a couple more cloves than called for). Also I like to sprinkle some oregano or thyme on the potatoes & garlic mix before roasting for additional flavor. I've done this recipe with peeled potatoes and with skin-on and it comes out great either way. When we have leftover ham adding it to this soup really kicks it up a notch. Serve w/ homemade garlic parmesan bread. Yummy!! Thank you for the recipe! Read More

This soup was prety good. Very easy to make. I followed the recipe as instructed but I omited the milk (we don't drink milk) and the taste was good. I think it will taste better tomorrow for left overs once the falvours have more time to settle. I used white potatoes and left the peel on them. Read More

Easy & quick. Variations abound. Increase health factor with small amount of baked cauliflower & a sweet potato completely blended in. Great to chase the Winter chills. Read More
