Herbed Potato Soup Recipe

This creamy potato soup is almost as easy to make as opening a can of soup—and it tastes so much better. The rosemary and thyme add just the right amount of seasoning.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:5 servings


  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups 2% milk

"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."

"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."

"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!"
