From the Veganomicon. This is the best potato soup I've ever made (and I have made many). I use Marsala wine, large red-skinned potatoes and vary the herbs based on what came out of the garden. I also just use skim milk in this because I'm not actually vegan. The great idea for this soup is that you bake the potatoes ahead of time, keep them in the fridge, then can pull together potato soup in 30 min after getting home from work. I like to make this in the same week as a casserole, so I just bake the potatoes while the other meal is cooking, then use them later in the week.
