Quick and Easy Potato Soup Recipe

Here's a quick and easy potato soup recipe that's also easy on the budget! It almost always makes it on my frugal meals menu and it's a hit with the whole family. I think your family will love it, too.

Here are just a few tips when making this recipe:

  • I don't skin the potatoes because the skin adds extra nutrition, but you are welcome to skip them if you like.
  • Where I live, organic celery and carrots are not that much more expensive than conventional, so you might consider buying organic!
  • I personally use more celery salt than the recipe calls for, as that's what my family likes. Taste your soup as you're adding the spices and keep adding them until you get it to your liking. Just be careful when adding the salt and celery salt, as it's also easy to make it too salty.
  • You can buy organic celery salt, onion powder, and garlic powder.
