How to Make Irish Potato Soup


  • 1Peel and slice your potatoes and chop your onions. Put the vegetable in a pot.
  • 2Cover the vegetables with at least twice the volume of milk. I like just a bit more milk.
  • 3Heat the soup but do not let it boil. Turn down the heat and stir while cooking until the vegetables are done. Add salt and pepper to taste. It takes a little more than you would think. Add the pepper to taste. I like a lot but be careful or you soup will be very hot. That's all there is too it. Yummy.
