Tips  

Expert Tips

Baking potatoes have low moisture and high starch content. Known as russets or Idaho potatoes, they are characterized by their long, slightly rounded shape and rough brown skin.

A serving of this soup provides a good source of fiber.

Pick up a loaf of focaccia and warm it to serve with this chunky soup. For an easy dessert, warm apple pie filling and serve it over ice cream with a drizzle of caramel ice cream topping.
