Herbed Cream of Potato Soup Recipe

I think white sauce is the best for cream soup. One day I added complementary herbs to plain potato soup. Yum! Now we always have our potato soup "herbed".
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup cubed peeled potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
