Baked Potato Soup IV


"This is a hearty potato soup that tastes like a creamy baked potato. I invented it to please a picky vegetarian daughter who pronounced it 'delicious'. Garnish with chives, shredded cheese or dried dill. Serve with a bread (flour tortillas, pita bread, sourdough or cornbread) and a salad or fruit."
