This soup was easy and delicious. I made as directed with the exception of subbing chicken stock for the vegetable stock and replacing 2 cups of the stock with fat free milk to make it more of a cream of potato soup. I thought the consistency of the thickened broth was perfect. I took a large container of the soup over to my in-laws, and they said to give it 10 stars. Made for December 2011 Aus/NZ Swap.
What a lovely soup. It made a yummy and heartwarming dinner tonight. Very easy to make with things usually on hand. I did add a bit extra of carrots and celery and used two rather large red potatoes and chicken stock (what I had). It came out delicious and was pure comfort in a bowl. Will absolutely made it again, and likely very soon.
