“This soup was great, so creamy. I add some carrots and green beans to it and it has a little more fiber and a little more heartiness to it.”

I have always liked the original version of this recipe and I liked this too, but I don't know how much 'healthier' it is. I used about 4 large carrots and a whole smallish onion - a lot more celery than is called for. Add what ever vegetables you have available. This is one of those great comfort meals - enjoy but don't think it is that much 'healthier'.

This soup turned out wonderful!! I think I used this recipe more as a guide.. Used the ham bone from my New Years ham to make a stock- covered the bone in water in a stock pot and let it simmer for about 3 hours. Then used that as my base. Added celery, onion, carrot, and potatoes- cooked. Then added roux. I also added a little garlic, salt, chicken boullion, and cayenne pepper. My first time cooking potato soup & it will definitely not be the last!!

My mom and I just made a pot of this potato soup for dinner.It is very good.I didn't have any chopped Ham so I used Hillshire Sausage instead.I used can cut green beans because I didn't have any fresh ones.The amount of vegetables were lowered because of the amount of juice.I also used less butter and flour.I added a tablespoon of corn starch.I also added some whipping cream.I seasoned to taste with salt pepper and seasoning salt.This recipe is certainly a keeper.
