For this soup, I like using several varieties of potatoes, although if you only have one type of potato available, that’s okay too. Since the title of this recipe is “thick and chunky” that’s what I do, leave the ingredients somewhat chunky, mashing the potatoes and vegetables just enough, leaving some chunks. To make a creamier soup, you can use an immersion blender to get the consistency you desire.
You can really dress this soup up with garnishes of grated cheese, bacon bits, parsley, and green onions, none of which I had on hand at the time I took this picture. 🙂 The soup is delicious plain or dressed up. Soup on!
