Potato Soup

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
  • Cheese
  • 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 .
