Rather bland, and I knew from years of experience that the sage & garlic would not even be noticed, so I doubled the amounts called for. Still turned out to be a very bland soup. Husband agreed. Would not make again.
A great soup on its own. I make my own richly flavored broth for the recipe using two large smoked turkey legs. Add legs to pot, cover with water, add 2 celery ribs (chunked), 1 large onion (chopped), 2 bay leaves, 1 tbs. peppercorns, cover and simmer until meat falls away from bone. Reserve meat and discard bones. Strain and defat broth. Use reserved meat in place of bacon. I also used leeks in place of the onion for the finished soup. Otherwise all other ingredients are the same.
A winner! We replaced the whipping cream with milk (it was all we had) and added crushed red pepper flakes. It turned out great.
I made this for the first time last night and it was AMAZING!!!! This soup is going to be a regular meal in our house. My son recently got his first deer, so I added some ground venison to the soup and it just made it that much better. The roasted red peppers and cilantro are a must! They add soooooo much flavor! An excellent soup!!!!
I make this recipe A LOT. I have made a couple of changes to it though... I add a can of corn (undrained) in place of the roasted sweet red peppers. I also use those baby red potatoes and I leave the skins on. It's AMAZING. Most of the time when I make this soup I have used bacon, but it is also really good with cubed ham. Seriously though, do NOT forget the cilantro. It adds so much flavor to the soup. It's probably the best potato soup I've ever eaten, and my husband agrees. Thick, creamy, and very hearty!
