    Tasty filling soup that was made the day before it was eaten. Definitely a change from regular potato soup that was well received from the family. Thank you!

    It is snowing in Hershey, PA today and I have been in the mood for potato soup. I did not have any scallions or cheddar cheese to put on top so I was looking for something I could improvise with. I did not have any fennel and I was out of chickpeas, but I did use a can of condensed Cream of Broccoli soup. I cooked the onion, celery, bacon (already cooked) and grated carrots in butter until tender and then added 3 cups of chicken stock. I added Paprika, Salt & Pepper and a couple of bay leaves for flavor. Once that cooked for a bit I added my potatoes until the stock just barely covered them and let it simmer until tender. I mashed them into chunky pieces. Once the broth became thick I then added the milk, stewed tomatoes and can of soup. I also added some parsley and a couple of bay leaves then let it simmer for about 30 min. It turned out very tasty, but I think next time I would omit the soup and use the cheddar cheese. I think it just depends on what you are in the mood for.

    I am not just yet giving this a rating. I purchased chick-peas but ended up using for 4 bean salad - yummy This is a good soup but I want to try with the chick-peas I had to use great northern beans. as I used up the can I had purchased for this soup. I did not have fennel so left out I as usually I half cheese as otherwise almost all recipes will be to rich for me.

    This was very very good. I used a 19 oz can of tomatoes because that is what I had on hand and I did not add the fennel. My family really enjoyed this and it was quite easy to make too. Thanks for the recipe.

    Nice, hearty soup! I omitted the salt (personal preference). It is a nice change from regular potato soup. Thanks for sharing!
