About this recipe: This creamy potato soup is as easy as buying ready made from the shop, but is so much tastier and healthier. Use fresh chopped herbs if you have them.

Just about to try this soup I making for me and my boyfriend, didn't have any bay leaves but still, I think it tastes nice with the Rosemary and Thyme. Next time I will buy bay leaves and maybe add some bacon. Tasted a little bit just now and it's really nice! - 03 Jan 2015
