“This really simple potato soup is so tasty. I cam up with it when trying to use the surplus of veggies from my garden. I didn't see a similar recipe on this site so I decided to post this one.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs potatoes, any variety
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 6 cups water
  • 14 cup dill, finely chopped (fresh is best, if you use dried use only about 2 tablespoons at most)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt (more if you prefer)
  • pepper


  1. Peel the potatoes and dice into ~1/2 inch cubes.
  2. place the potatoes, water and onion in a pot, bring to the boil, then simmer for about 30 minutes.
  3. Remove about 2/3 of the soup, place in a blender, and blend until smooth.
  4. Add the blended mixture back into the pot with the non-blended mixture, and add the dill, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  5. Leave on low heat for a further 5 minutes then serve.
