Tips & Tricks

Trying to dial-in the flavor and consistency to your liking? These tips and tricks can help!

Use fresh potatoes. The recipe calls for frozen hash-browns, but you can always use fresh potatoes instead. Russet or Yukon gold potatoes work best for this recipe. Also, be sure to peel them and dice them into uniform slices.

Prevent browning. If you are peeling a large quantity of fresh potatoes, place them in a bowl of cold water post-peeling. This will stop them from browning.

Thin the soup. If the soup is too thick for your liking, you can thin it out by adding more broth or milk. Keep pouring until you achieve your desired consistency.

Thicken the soup. If you want your potato soup thicker, make a roux! In a pan over low heat, melt two tablespoons of butter and add 2 tablespoons of flour. Whisk, then add. Instant potato flakes also work.

Puree the potatoes. If you prefer smoother soups, puree all the potatoes in a blender beforehand. But if you want a creamy yet chunky soup, then puree only half of the potatoes. That way, you get a bit more texture.

Try different mix-ins. Give your soup more depth by adding vegetables, herbs, or spices. Ingredients like carrots, leeks, garlic powder, or parsley add a nice flavor. You can also make it spicy with chili powder.
