I had a craving for potato soup today, which is strange considering it was 88 degrees outside and humid. We’ve been moving for the last three days, and every single part of my body hurts, I’m exhausted, and I did not feel like cooking. But I still wanted potato soup.
I didn’t have several of my usual ingredients, so I just went with what I had on hand, and the results were UH-mazing! I took some help from the store and added frozen roasted corn, green peppers and onions. And since I had no potatoes, I used a package of Simply Potatoes, which made the soup ultra creamy and thickened it nicely too.
My husband wanted sausage. I didn’t. But as a compromise, I threw in two links and was glad I did. It gave it great flavor. You could easily substitute turkey sausage to lighten it up, which I’ll probably do next time.
Trader Joe’s roasted corn is one of favorite ingredients. It adds a nice smoky flavor to just about anything I use it in, but you could use any kind of corn – frozen, canned…whatever you’ve got on hand. Same goes for the cheese. Just add what you like. I like Havarti, because it has a buttery flavor and is very creamy.
This wasn’t the lightest soup I’ve ever made, but it was incredibly quick and easy, and oh-so-delicous! I’ll be making this a lot when the weather cools down. Perfect comfort food!
