Seven soups every Saturday: potato soup recipes

Vegan and gluten-free potato leek soup, from Gluten-Free Goddess

The calendar says Spring here in southern New England, but my body still feels a chill in the air when the sun goes down. Potato soup carries me from one season to the next. With carrots, it tastes like winter; with leeks, it's most definitely Spring. And, don't tell anyone, but leftover potato soup, eaten cold right from the refrigerator, can be quite satisfying. The market in our village offers several varieties of potato year-round; if I can buy Yukon Golds and red new potatoes in a tiny town in Rhode Island, you probably will find them at your market, too.

Seven potato soup recipes caught my eye this week:

Roasted red pepper potato soup, from Simply Recipes

Curry potato soup with lamb meatballs, from Wasabimon

Pear pecorino potato soup, from Cooking with Amy

Gluten-free potato leek soup, from Gluten-Free Goddess

Potato soup with fried almonds, from The Wednesday Chef

I'm feeling deja vu Soup Chick.

Just made a wonderfully sprich spring soup with a potato base, then added some green onions, a small zucchini, spinach and parsley. When all the vegetables were tender, I pureed it well and added a splash of half anf half cream. It had a lovely light green hue and freshness. A perfect spring cream of potato soup.

Sooht- forgot to mention. I added a good amount of celery to the mix as well. For winging it, it really was a very delicious soup.

My mother made the best potato soup, and now that I rarely eat potatoes I find myself craving it once in a while!

CJ, your potato soup sounds divine. I'm going to try it.

Kalyn, I think potato soup is one of those taste memories you never forget. I seldom eat potatoes anymore, either, so potato soup is a real treat.

Lydia- That soup was deleicous. I just want to note that the potato (yukon gold) was in the soup only as a base, something to give it great body. It was about 1/2 of the other ingredients. There was a very generous amount of celery, the small zucchini, two handfuls of spinach, a small clove of garlic, green onions for the brightness they add, parsley for the freshness, and some vegetable stock (Penzy's vegetable base). Can't remember if I added a couple of asparagus or not. I think I did. (???)

None of the components stood out but it ended up tasting like a springtime bisque with a lovely green hue. Just one of those things you wing with the odd bits you have in the refrigerator and it turned out beautifully with the taste as you go approach. One of the beautiful things about soup.
