Homemade Creamy Potato Soup

Growing up in a big family, my mom was always looking for ways to make dinner quickly yet still nourish us. One of her go-to recipes was her homemade potato soup. Just one pot and a few simple ingredients and she could create a warm, comforting meal that the whole family would love. It’s been a family favorite ever since.

I still make this soup at least once a month, and I hope you’ll give it a try too! With just potatoes, cream, herbs, and a few other pantry staples, you can have a delicious, creamy soup on the table in no time. I love to top mine with croutons and extra herbs for a bit of crunch, but you can customize it however you like. Enjoy!

Variations: For a heartier soup, add cooked bacon or cooked sausage. You can also add grated cheese or sour cream to the soup for a cheesy potato soup. For a vegan option, substitute vegetable broth and vegan butter.

Tips: For a smoother soup, use an immersion blender to blend the soup until desired consistency is reached.
