Potato Soup

Potato soup serves as a great comfort food on a cold night. When pureed, the potatoes take on a smooth, velvety texture that is the perfect vehicle for more flavorful ingredients, such as leeks, shredded cheese or bacon. Leave the potatoes in cubes and you can create a rustic stew that makes for a hearty, nutrient-rich dinner. Check out Food & Wine's guide for more potato soup recipes and ideas.
