I found this recipe on (by Vina). I like to "make it my own" so some of the things here are my add-ons some are by Vina. Either way it turned out so unexpectedly good I had to share it.

How To Make potato soup

  • 1
    Put your potatoes, onions, celery in a large pan and add just enough water to barely cover the veggies.
  • 2
    Cook on high to boiling. Turn heat down to simmer. Cover. Simmer until veggies are soft, especially potatoes. If you like your celery and onions a little crunchie add them later than the potatoes. Mine took about 30 minutes.

    Once potatoes are soft stir it up. Mushing up some of the potatoes to help thicken it up. Stir in the heavy cream and salt and pepper. I also added a little garlic salt. Simmer a few more minutes. Serve as is or sprinkle on some bacon bits and/or shredded cheese and maybe a dollop of sour cream. Enjoy!!!
