Recipe by Montana Heart Song
This recipe is quick, easy. I needed a soup without milk or cheese.Chicken broth fit the bill. This is a rich smooth soup with small chunks of potato and small bits of onion.A good soup to serve on St. Patrick's day. I serve with thick toasted bread slices. My husband ate two large bowls. Usually likes spinach cooked with or without vinegar. Now he has another favorite. A good recipe to use from your garden bounty! The chicken base is moist and it is 1 1/2 tsps or 4 chicken bouillon cubes. I have changed it in the recipe twice but it doesn't want to acknowledge the teaspoon measurement.

- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
