    Add carrots, stir well, cover, increase the heat to medium and cook for 5 minutes. A couple minutes later, quickly stir well.

    Add leftover mashed potatoes, combine them with the ingredients before pouring in the chicken broth. Add Herbes de Provence, rosemary, paprika, thyme and white pepper; stir well. Add bay leaf and bring the mixture to a boil, whisking often. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer gently for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    When time is up, turn off the heat and let the mixture rest for 5 minutes. Remove the bay leaf and discard it. Using an immersion blender, process until the soup is smooth with no lumps in it; taste and adjust if necessary.
