Reviews for Herbed Potato Soup
"Really simple...and easy to find ingredients for those of us not in the States."
"This is a new family favorite! Easy for kids to get involved and yummy every time! With 5 kids I have to make this recipe X 4 and then there is just enough left for my lunch the next day."
"there is nothing as inviting on a cold winter day as a steaming hot potato soup +a crisp crunchy bread to ward off the winter blahs."
"We like this very well. hmmm good"
"Delicious. But 3 potatoes was too much. I had to add lots of milk to make it a soup-like consistency (and seasonings to match). Doesn't refrigerate well, turns into a clump. But is delicious right after cooking and I wouldn't hesitate to serve it to guests."
"I was surprised. I normally dont care for potato soup, but this was good."
"I have made this recipe for our church dinners with our vegetrains in mind. I always get outstanding reviews on it. I have added grated carrot and peas for color."
"This is a really delicious soup. The consistency is perfect. I added garlic when sauteing the onions and sprinkled Parmesan cheese on top of the finished product. Amazing! I served it with biscuits for dipping."
"Wow! So easy to make, delicious, and filling. Great for a cold winter's supper! I love that there are no special ingredients, just standard things I always have on hand. That makes this a meal I can make on the spur of the moment!"
"This was a quick and delicious recipe that I will definitely be making again! We added shredded cheese and crumbled bacon on top-it was perfect!"
"Excellent flavors! One I will definitely be making again!"
"I tried this, and it was a big hit with the family. It doubles well, and is very satisfying. My dad suggested adding a teaspoon each of powdered beef and chicken stock, so I tried that; it's excellent either way!"
