"Although this recipe seems to represent the spring season, it also suits the crisp air that the fall brings. Super simple and simply tasty. While I'm a fan of smooth soups I also enjoy having something to chew on in them so I added chopped tomatoes, purple basil and lemon zest for a refreshing zip!"

"1,012 mg sodium, in 1 cup of soup?? Way, way, way too much for any human. I'm wondering why so high...the chicken broth?"

"My soup came out too thin. Maybe I did something wrong. Next time I will use less chicken broth. I also think I will try sauteing some onion with the potatoes, and adding salt and pepper. I will definitely try this again."
