Went together easily (used the little gadget we use to cut french fries to make cubing go faster) and fairly hands-off. We both liked it, esp. after adding a little salt & pepper. Cornflour did not thicken in microwave. 3 smallish potatoes made 3 bowls of soup. We think we can improve on this but it was certainly yummy enough to finish in one sitting.

This recipe is easy to prepare and I like it that it cooks in the microwave all in one bowl. It took a little longer to cook in my microwave than the stated time. I used vegetable broth and also used my immersion blender after the potatoes were done to smash a few of the potatoes for a thicker soup. The end result was a little bit bland for my taste, but I added a little low fat sour cream, garlic powder, seasoned salt, crushed red pepper, fresh ground black pepper and a sprinkling of parmesan on top. It was still low fat and the taste was great! I will make this again! Thanks for posting Anu!

VERY bland, but had potential. I added tons of stuff to improve the flavor, including white pepper, LOTS of garlic, and who knows what all else. In the end, it came out pretty good, but DH & DDs weren't fans. I had to eat the whole thing by myself over a period of days so I wouldn't have to toss it or let it spoil. Sorry to say I won't be making this one again.
