Glad to see this recipe is already here. I made it this afternoon from my Moosewood at Home cookbook, and wanted to make sure it's handy for next time. Excellent flavor and healthy as well. This definitely goes on the cool winter nights' soup list!
Mmmm, great soup. My husband called it "excellent" and I agree. Fast and easy and oh, so tasty. Served it with Kansas Gal Biscuits (recipe #43105). Next time will try it with garnishes as I had neither tomatoes or chives on hand. Thanks, ratherbeswimmin' and Moosewood for this definite make-again recipe.
Excellent flavor! A few notes--make sure that you peel the potato to avoid a gritty consistency. Not good for freezing. I used tomato-chicken bouillon, which made the soup a bit salty, so you may want to taste as you go.
