“I was looking for a soup for a really cold day and found several recipes for German Potato Soup (potato soup with dumplings). I decided to try my own version since I am supposed to be on a low cholesterol diet, hence the fat-free milk products and egg substitute.I added the carrot because carrots and potatoes go so well together and I thought it would be fun to try it.The dumplings are similar in taste and texture as fresh egg noodles. This turned out to be the best-tasting potato soup I have ever made and my husband loved it. I hope you do too.”
