So unbelievably good, Dorothy! I made this last weekend and never got a chance to post a review. I used yellow potatoes and vidalia onions so my soup was somewhat sweeter than it might have been with different varieties of those things. I loved it! Thanks for the recipe!
Flavor was a bit lacking. Maybe I processed it a bit too long, but shouldn't have tasted any different. Also, I noticed something red or orange in the picture, but nothing similar in the ingredients. Guess I just love the flavor of some bacon or sausage in potato soup and prefer the old fashioned chunky variety.
A delicious soup!!! I added 2 small chopped carrots since we are carrot-lovers. This recipe was quick and easy. I will be having this soup again because DH loved it also! Prepared as a participant in the Two for One - Leftover Event January 2010 in the Cooking Photo Forum.
