Herbed Potato Soup

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.

    Very bland. I normally use chicken stock but didn't. Why? I was out and didn't want to do a store run, FYI, I have a col. So I added thyme, rosemary and salt. Hmmmm, still missing something. So, I drove to the store and bought chicken bouillon and added 7 cubes to the mix. Guess what it was missing.......... chicken stock.

    This was delicious! After tasting the original recipe, I added some leftover chicken from the chicken quesadilla recipe and it was amazing (5 star). I rated the original recipe here. Potato soup is one of our favorite cool evening staples.

    I love potato soup. My husband not so much. He loves this recipie. It is super quick and easy. I use italian seasoning instead of the herbs listed, those are adjusted to my taste. Soup is really easy to throw together and just wing it. Excellent as written, excellent as a base for more complicated soup as well.

    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.
