1/1 Photo of Smoky Potato Soup
This soup is a variation of my Irish mother's potato soup. I won third prize in the San Diego Union's Potato Recipe Contest. I love the combination of rosemary and garlic in this soup. I use an immersion blender and lightly puree the soup, rather than putting it in my traditional blender...much much safer!
