German Potato Soup Recipe

A taste of my homeland… Potato Soup has been a childhood favourite of mine since I was able to process different tastes. One of the most exciting moments getting off the plane in Frankfurt was knowing that there was going to be a HUGE steaming pot of potato soup with fresh pretzels. Sometimes when I get homesick I make this soup, venture off to the bakery while its simmering, and get the biggest, fluffiest pretzels I can.

Enough reminiscing… its time for cooking.

  • Just finished the second and last bowl of the “most delicious soups we’ve ever had, ever – husband concurs.” Of course, being of German decent, had to add sour cream (Tofutti as we’re dietary vegans). This soup isn’t just super filling, I dare say it’s like soup crack, you just can’t stop eating it! THANKS!!!
