This is an all time favorite recipe using potatoes that I can create from memory. I hope you will try my homemade creamy potato soup recipe. My best dishes are created when I use what we have in the kitchen on hand. Today I had a bag of fresh Idaho potatoes, bacon defrosting from the freezer box, and some fresh parsley from the greenhouse. I just love growing herbs in the greenhouse year-round.
Potato Soup Recipe
This is my all-time favorite recipe to make up using what I have on hand in the pantry. I do grow my own potatoes for fun but I enjoy using those in other dishes. Below is my easy Creamy Potato Soup Recipe. Feel free to use fresh from your garden or store bought. In the past I’ve even tried canned potatoes because it is all we had on hand at the time. It wasn’t so bad using canned potatoes from Aldi. Here is my recipe and be sure to leave me a comment if you use it.
I use my Instant Pot as a ‘stock pot’ to sauté and even pressure cook my potatoes for this recipes.
This is one of my favorite recipes during the winter months because it is such a nice scent to have fresh soup on the stove top!
In the Kitchen
Dating back to B.C. time the potato is the world’s fourth largest food crop, following rice, wheat, and maize. The potato is a starchy, tuberous crop that is super easy to grow in home gardens. You can use some of the water from the potatoes being cooked and cut back on the milk and cream if you like to cut carbs.
