Serve up a big bowl of this Creamy Rosemary Potato Soup tonight. It’s the perfect antidote to cold winter weather!
Hi, everyone! It’s Ginnie from Hello Little Home, and I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes today.
Winter has arrived in full force here in New York. It’s so cold outside that my face hurts, and it’s only going to get worse before it gets better. All I want to do is stay inside and eat lots of comfort food. Are you with me?
There is nothing better than a steaming bowl of soup on an icy cold day, and my Creamy Rosemary Potato Soup is no exception.
This rich and flavorful soup is filled with vegetables and couldn’t be easier to make. You don’t even have to peel the potatoes!
You’ll start by sauteing a base of onions, carrots, and celery. Once everything is softened, season the vegetables with rosemary and garlic. The red potatoes (my favorite!) are added next, along with the broth, and simmered until tender.
I finished the soup by pureeing half the vegetables and stirring in a little cream. Yum! If you’re watching calories, feel free to skip the cream. It will be still be delicious!
Just before serving, top the soup with cheddar cheese and sliced green onions, or have fun picking your own toppings!
