I threw this together for my infant son and my "big girls" all thought it was a treat and begged for a taste. At supper, I had to break up fights of girls stealing spoonfuls from each other. My grandmother made soup like this when I was growing up, but this is a healthier version.


  1. First peel and slice potatoes and rinse in cold water.
  2. Place potatoes in a heavy large pan and cover with water, just to cover.
  3. Boil until soft but not mushy.
  4. Pour about half of the water off of the potatoes, but save half, the starch that boils off the potatoes helps the soup to thicken and holds more nutrients.
  5. Add yogurt and spices and simmer 5-10 minutes to let the flavors mingle, and serve.
  6. I like a little shredded cheese in mine, Grew up with Cheddar, but like Mozzarella now.

This recipe was great! Very easy to make with ingredients found in most kitchens. A great meal for a cool fall day!! I added a cup of chicken broth and a bit of evaporated skimmed milk to up the creaminess of the soup. I also cooked the garlic before adding it. Thanks for a great meal!!

Very nice soup which is easy to make especially when you don't feel like cooking. Good way of using up potatoes. Added a little Parmesan to this.
