Creamy Potato Soup

My mom passed this recipe on to me years ago. She saw it on a KUTV 2 show. The recipe comes from Debbie Worthen. She was on there sharing this recipe.

If your looking for a low fat creamy potato soup that tastes good, this is it. The only bad thing you’ve got going on in here is the 1/4 cup butter. The recipe calls for red potatoes, but I don’t always have those. So russets also work just fine.

I never put in the peas in it for my family. No one at my house likes them. I really like how this recipe uses green onion instead of the typical chopped yellow onion. It’s a nice change and adds color to the soup. This has become a family favorite.

  • Just had this soup tonight. I made it just the way it was written (I read somewhere that you should always make a recipe the way it is written first, and if you want to make changes the next time, you will know what changes to make – like more spices, less water, etc.) This is a fabulous recipe. It is quite filling, and it doesn’t take a lot of money. This one is a keeper to hand down.

  • One of my sisters cannot have dairy so we used regular soy milk it was delicious!! Also so make it healthier instead of butter we used buttter olive oil and you couldent tell the difference!!

  • Made this soup last night and served in the bread bowls. I used red potatoes, but forgot the frozen peas! Oh well. I will definitely make it again soon and will remember the peas!

  • Hey! I’m a new reader visiting from Good stuff Maynard. Just wanted to say WOW! I will be back! I think I was actually drooling over those pork quesadillas!
