Potato Soups

Rich and velvety, homemade potato soup makes a satisfying and comforting wintertime meal. Potatoes create a filling, healthful soup base that’s versatile and adaptable. Alter a potato soup recipe with different mix-ins and seasonings -- from traditional bacon and cheddar toppings to sweet potatoes flavored with cumin, coriander, and mustard seeds.

recipe

A puree of sweet potatoes, apple, and leeks gets an earthy spiciness from a chipotle chile coated in adobo sauce. (You may want to omit the chile if making this for kids.) The silky soup relies on its fresh ingredients, not heavy cream or butter, to achieve its rich flavor.

recipe

Tender chunks of potato make thick pea soup even heartier. This meal is guaranteed to warm kids up on cold winter days. If not serving soup immediately, let it cool completely, and then store it in airtight containers. It will keep in the refrigerator for up to five days and in the freezer for up to one month.
