I guess that you figured it by now; I am a HUGE fan of soups… Can you believe it? I’m starting to think about changing the name of the blog into “the soup 0f life” and the logo would be a bowl of steaming hot soup!! Buuut they say don’t rush decisions if you’re angry or very excited and since we’re speaking about soups; I get ants in the pants!
But hey let’s be real; it’s easy, cheap, healthy, yummy and it’s a way to use up all the extra veggies in your fridge! So, who wouldn’t hit fever pitch on that…
In the menu; a painless and pleasing creamy potato soup that you can simply master by following 3 easy steps! Whether it’s an appetizer or a main meal this soup suits all your tastes and makes you happy within few sips.
This classic is by far a family’s fav, my dad used to like it creamy and kind of heavy but my mom was always adding extra milk til getting a well mixed Purée with a light texture. No matter how you drink it, nothing is more comforting than a steaming bowl of Potato soup on a cold winter’s night!
This recipe surely brings me back childhood memories, how about you? Is there any single recipe that makes you all nostalgic and craving for the past? Maybe, a local dish that reminds you of home? (where your heart is: *cliché*)
Let me know in the coments below 😀 I’ll be more than pleased to reply!
I’ll share with you how to make a light and creamy potato soup using a hint of nutmeg and some spices to taste! And always remember:
- The more milk you add the lighter it is;
- The more cream you add the thicker it it;
- If you’re craving for a creamy soup and didn’t have cream, just add 2 tsp of flour into the mixture;
- If you are lactose intolerant, don’t worry you might use chicken broth instead of milk or cream.
- 3 to 4 medium potatoes
- 1/2 cup milk (or more)
- 2 tsp butter
- pinch of salt and pepper
- First, wash your potatoes thoroughly to remove dirt then add your potatoes to your pot of boiling water. Cook 20-25 minutes or until tender.
- Then, peel the potatoes and mash them in a bowl.
- Beat in milk in small amounts, melted butter and cheese! Don’t forget to season it .
