Reviews for No-Fuss Potato Soup
Sort By :
This soup tasted like vegetables cooked in evaporated milk. No real flavor. For those who added ham and liked it, I can see why. It definitely needs something other than parsley to give it flavor.
So easy and delicious! This is possibly one of my new favorites!
This came out excellent for me. I also added a pack of diced ham to make it an all around meal. I will definitely make again.
The vegetables should definitely be sauted before adding. After 6 hours the vegetables were already complete mush. I did come out very thin and I had to add a flour/water rue to thicken. I agree with many others that it would be better with 8 cups of potatoes, some mashed.
Oops, forgot to mention in my review that I only *checked* it at 4 hours. I cooked it longer per the recipe instructions. (But, if I had left out the onions, I think it actually would have been done after 4 hours).
