“Please note: This recipe calls for 10 oz small yellow-fleshed potatoes (like Yukon Gold or similar). FYI, this is approx. 2 small potatoes. (It was difficult to write this out in the recipe, so i just decided to note it here.) This is a nice, filling soup that is easy to make. When I made this, I subbed about half the water with leftover chicken broth. However, I'm sure it tastes just as good (w/out the broth). This is part of a "two-for" recipe, which originally included a recipe for Ham-and-Swiss Toasts (for serving alongside) for a complete meal idea. I have posted the Ham and Swiss Toasts separately. Recipe source: Rachael Ray magazine”
