  • Summary

    You will love this easy homemade potato soup recipe with potatoes, veggies, garlic, and a creamy broth. The soup is comforting and ultra-flavorful. For the best potato soup, use Yukon Gold potatoes. They have thin skins, so it is not necessary to peel them. They also become buttery and soft when cooked. There are two ways to serve this soup: brothy or thick and blended (our favorite). We love both and making them is the same except for the last step. For a thick, luxurious, and blended soup use a potato masher or immersion blender to puree or mash about half of the potatoes in the soup to thicken it.
