Easy Creamy & Brothy Potato Soup

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 35 mins

Easy, few ingredients, not too thick but more substance than a broth soup. Healthier than canned. Nothing fancy but satisfying and simple. All done in one pot too. I prefer organic stock which is lower in sodium, so adjust for that. very good with good italian garlic bread topped with good italian cheese.

This is a great basic potato soup. It has a very nice texture from being semi-mashed...makes it seem like it's more fattening than it is. I used fresh garlic instead of powder and added some celery salt for some extra flavor. This will be made again; thanx for posting!
