Thick and comforting, potato soup is a well-loved dish during colder months. With a stick-to-your-ribs texture and decadent flavor, it’s sometimes considered an indulgence. But these potato-based soups are lighter in calories and fat than your traditional recipes, all while remaining just as delicious.
Both russet and sweet potatoes make a great, healthy soup base. Just be sure to have a collection of toppings for each person to customize their own bowl. Go savory with bacon bits, sharp cheddar cheese, and chives. Or choose the sweet route and sprinkle on marshmallows, coconut chips, or nuts.
White Cheddar and Chive Potato Soup
Starchy and mild flavored, potatoes are perfect for making an instantly creamy soup base. Whether you want to play on the flavors of the classic baked potato, combine it with another chowder favorite (corn), or use sweet potatoes for a healthier twist, you're sure to find a steaming bowl of soup here that satisfies you.
This luscious, creamy potato soup recipe uses just one pan for fast weeknight comfort and even faster cleanup. We love the look and tang of sharp white cheddar.
