It is not uncommon to use potatoes in the preparation of soups. Sometimes, they are used in the stock. At other times, the juice of a potato is used to thicken a soup instead of cornflour. But, in this unique soup, potato takes the centre stage. Here, potatoes are flavoured with onions and bayleaf, and cooked along with milk and fresh cream to make a terrifically creamy soup. Since potato is known to thicken foods, ensure you serve the Cream of Potato Soup immediately before it becomes too thick to consume!

Your cream of spinach soup was awesome. My son does not eat palak and I keep on hunting new ways to make him eat spinach. This was a great way. I''m happy that your website supports vegetarianism so much especially in today''s fast turning non-veg. world.
