This is an easy way to impress your guests. I have served it at cocktail parties in cold weather. Also as a first course at dinner, substituting it as the starch.

This potato soup will really surprise you; it’s not just your run-of-the-mill recipe! To say my husband loved this soup would be an understatement. The morning after he tried it for the first time, his first comment of the day was, “That is one of the best soups I have ever eaten!”

Susan, you are my husband's soup hero.
