Steps in making Easy Potato Soup Recipe

Peel the potatoes and cut them into pieces.

Step 2

Prepare the onions and chop. The pieces do not have to be small since you will be blending later.

Step 3

Put the potatoes and onions into a large pot and cover with water.

Potato Soup Starts
Cook them on the stove until all are tender.

Step 4

Cook on the stove until all are tender. You can’t really overcook at this point. It is very forgiving!

Potato Soup in Blender
Blend the onion-potato mixture in a food processor or blender.

Step 5

Blend the onion-potato mixture in a food processor or blender. Add milk or cream as needed to get the desired consistency.

Potatoe Soup Blended
Return the blended soup to the pot on low heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 6

Return the blended soup to the pot on low heat and season with salt and pepper to taste. You can add other spices at this point if you desire.

Step 7

Add additional milk or cream as needed for creaminess and consistency. I find if your potatoes are really, really soft it reduces the necessity for cream and ends up quite creamy.

Serve! I like to add a topping bar with bacon, shredded cheese, chives, sour cream, and anything else that tastes yummy on baked potatoes.

  1. We love blended veggie soups too. I’m too lazy to put the veggies into my blender. Have you ever tried a hand blender directly in the pot? So much easier! I also like to use chicken stock instead of water to steam the veggies. Can you tell we eat a lot of soup?

  2. I’m sooo going to try this. I love potato soup. It’s one of my favorite things. Once the weather gets colder I make it a lot! (Carrot soup is really good too, believe it or not).
