I replaced the water with chicken stock, omitted the boullion and used more potatoes. All in all, a very delicious and satisfying soup. Thanks so much Sue!


If you make this recipe as stated, it's way too salty (as I had feared with all of the boullion cubes and salt) and it doesn't have enough potatoes for me. I would suggest reducing the salt you add or omitting it altogether as the cubes have enough themselves. Also, I used 3 cups of potatoes which still wasn't quite enough so I'd recommend 4 cups. This recipe has potential but just needs a little tweaking.

Super delish!!! Like other reviewers, I added more potatoes. I used almost 4 cups. This was really quick and didn't call for lots of ingredients. It has a wonderful taste...two of my children (6 yr old and 3 yr old) insisted on having a serving right away! I can't wait for hubby to come home for dinner! Thanks for the great recipe!
