Keeping it simple! This creamy homemade potato soup is made with just a handful of ingredients, and still has the taste you crave. Add some cheddar cheese on top if you're feeling really crazy.MORE+LESS-
green onions, plus more for garnish
teaspoon dried basil, or more to taste
Salt and pepper, to taste
Water (quantity will vary)
cups milk (plus more if needed)
Peel and roughly chop potatoes. Discard tops and bottoms of green onions and mince the remaining pieces.
Add potatoes and onions to a medium-sized saucepan and cover with water. Boil on high for 30 minutes, adding more water to the pot as needed, until potatoes as well cooked and soft.
Remove pot from heat and drain the water over a strainer until it is just under the level of your cooked potatoes. Return any onions and basil the strainer catches to the pot.
Add 2 1/2 cups milk to potatoes and mash until mostly smooth, leaving a few small chunks for a hearty texture. Add more milk, a dash at a time, until soup reaches your preferred consistency.
Season liberally with salt and pepper to taste. Return pot to the stove and heat, stirring frequently, for 2-3 minutes. Serve garnished with additional green onions if desired.
