This Easy Herbed Potato Soup is just that: easy. In fact I whipped it up about an hour ago, did a quickie photo shoot and I'm posting the recipe for you now, knowing I have a tall pitcher of soup awaiting me at dinnertime. I think I'll pair it with some hearty crusty bread sticky-maple tempeh sandwiches (like this) and a crisp wedge salad. Soup-er Supper.
These flavors are robust and smooth at the same time. Fresh herbs: dill, parsley, - spicy and salty Dijon, creamy white potato, extra virgin olive oil, pepper and a hint of smokiness. Give this creamy, rich potato soup a try for tonight's supper..
..and a tall glass of my Triple Citrus Lemonade or Spa Water would match perfectly with this..
And it's recipes like these why I indeed love my Vitamix.
