Cheesy Potato Soup with Cream and Broccoli

On with 0 Comment
Earlier I made a delicious sweet potato soup that came out very well and was appreciated by the family members. Today's soup is also made from a tuberous vegetable but this time - it's just normal potatoes. It's a rich and creamy soup garnished with seasoned broccoli and boiled potatoes. You can also add sweet potatoes in this soup to get an enhanced flavor but make sure it does not overwhelm other ingredients. The light version of this soup tastes great as well which is devoid of cream and cheese. In that case, you can slightly increase the spices accompanied with some dried herbs. Make sure you avoid using frozen or canned potatoes for this soup as they may not give you the authentic taste.
