SO HOW'D IT GO?

I absolutely love this recipe! It's so quick and easy as well absurdly delicious! I put in onion, ginger, lemon zest, and a lot of dill for my spices.  :)>>>

This is great! Next time I think I will add carrots and broccoli.

This was really, really yummy. I cooked it a little different: I sauteed the onion, leeks and celery in margarine, then added them to the mashed potatoes. It was a little thick, so I added more veggie stock than called for. I only blended about 2/3 of the mixture, so the soup has some 'chunk' to it. I also added a teaspoon of dried basil. It was delicious, and my meat-and-potatoes boyfriend loved it to!

My mouth watered at the thought of this. I am incredibly broke right now, and potatoes are on sale for $1.99 for 5 lbs...guess what I'll be making a huge batch of!!! :-)

;)b  Okay, so I had to cook the potatoes for an extra 20 minutes or so, maybe b/c I cut the cubes too large.  I added 1/2 Tbsp of dried dill, as I wasn't sure if the recipe called for fresh or not.  This is so scrumptious!  5 stars all the way!  I'm not sure what this would go best with, but just the soup alone is good enough for me.  Thank you so much for the recipe!!  Unfortunately, my husband said he wants his with a chicken salad sandwhich. :(

...ummmm, shouldn't I have to boil the potatoes for at least 20 minutes or so?  They are still hard when the water comes to a boil.  I tried to mash them with no success. I'll let you know how it comes out though.  (it's still cooking!)  :-\
