    Good, but kinda bland. I will carmelize the veggies first next time, and add more salt and pepper and hot sauce.

    this was soooo good! I doubled the recipe and cooked the potatoes in a pressure cooker with half a carton of no sodium chicken broth, then I cooked the veggies in the other half of the chicken broth in a large pot. When the potatoes were done I mashed them up with greek yogurt (instead of the sour cream) and stirred them into the veggies. For the roux (flour and fat mixture) I used coconut oil, maragarine and butter cause I didnt have enough butter, along with whole wheat flour. I added in 4 cups of 3.5% milk then added it all together. For seasoning I added himilayan salt, garlic salt, white pepper and black pepper. We didnt have green onions but we did add on bacon crumble and shredded cheddar. I cant get over how perfect this turned out! My whole family loved it

    This potato soup recipe was exactly what I was looking for. It is the same potato soup that I've ordered in restaurants many times before. I will make this again in the future.

    Turned out wonderful. Very tasty and filling. Next time I will do a little less onion as it was a bit much for my taste. Will make again! Thanks for sharing

    Turn out pretty good. My wife liked it. As she was under the weather so it was soothing for her.

    I've made this soup now twice. Once, exactly as the recipe directs. The other time, I replaced all diary and animal products with vegan items. Both times the soup was perfect. Highly recommend this recipe to anyone.

    Turned out great! I swapped ingredients to be almost vegan! I used butter. But next time I’ll try coconut oil. Still yum

    Simple and good. I felt it needed a good deal of black pepper in order not to taste too creamy. I only had half the amount of potatoes needed so I added 3 cups of frisée lettuce to make up the difference and get in some greens and found it worked well.
