This potato soup is so incredibly easy to make. The flavor of this soup is very light and creates a nice blank slate to accompany other bolder flavors with it. It’s sometimes nice to have different levels of flavors to a meal. If every part of the meal is bold, salty, spicy, etc. then there is no room for cleansing the palate so to speak. This soup really balances out a meal perfectly. A light and refreshing potato soup that has a delicious light flavor profile that combines extremely well with bold side dishes or other main dishes. 

 

Key features and tips

We are using anchovy soup stock powder in our recipe. We highly recommend using this if you can find it or order it online. If you absolutely can not find this item, you could also use a few whole dried anchovies instead in your soup stock. If you don’t have anchovies, you could add a couple of pieces of dried kombu seaweed to instill that umami flavor. We haven’t tested these substitutions out ourselves, but feel free to experiment if you’re having a hard time finding anchovy soup stock powder. 

 

We slice the potatoes really thin so that it doesn’t take a long time to cook. By slicing the potatoes thinly, it also gives the soup a light feeling versus having big potato chunks as you would see in a hearty stew.
