Quick Potato Soup

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by Grannydragon

After trying several potato soups within Zaar, I have decided for a really quick potato soup this is the way, when in a rush, that I will make it in the future. If you serve it cold in warm weather, it will be Vichyssoise.

My friends and I really enjoyed this. I used Simply Potatoes brand prepackaged mashed potatoes (checked the website to ensure they were gluten free). It came in a 24 oz package so I gave 3 oz to my BF to munch on until the soup was ready. :) The seasonings were great and the cream cheese really thickened it up, but I had a problem with the cheese melting all the way. Maybe it wasn't all the way up to room temperature. Anyway, with a little patience, the soup turned out wonderfully. Thank you for posting!
