Introduction: Cream Potato Soup

Picture of Cream Potato Soup
This is one of my favorite soups. My mom often made it when I was a kid...but now I can made one myself.

Products:
  • 1 kg potatoes (about 10 medium size)
  • 1 onion
  • 1 or 2 carrots
  • Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper and any other ingredients you like
  • 1 to 2 litters Water
  • 1 egg

Optional
  • Toast
  • White cheese

Step 1: Cut the Vegetables

Peel the potatoes and slice them. Do the same with the onion and the carrots. I use frozen carrots so I’m not going to slice them because they are already grated.

Step 2: Boil

Put the products in the water and add the oil, the salt and the pepper. If you like other ingredients put them now.
Then place the pot to the stove and wait until the water boils. My potatoes are ready for about 15-20 minutes, but it depends on the stove.

Step 3: Stir the Egg Into the Soup

When everything is ready leave the soup 10 minutes to get cool. Meanwhile you can whip the egg.

Here's how I made it:
While I stir the egg, I slowly add some of the water (only water, no potatoes) from the soup. I'm adding water until the bowl gets full. Then I add the egg into  the pot with the other products.

Step 4: Blend (strain) the Soup

Usually I remove almost all of the water and after I blend the potatoes I return the water back. In that way I can define how thick will be the soup.

Step 5: Enjoy:)

The soup is ready to be served. It can be served with a toast and some white cheese.

Not sure what herbs are available in Norway etc. but over here, I love using dill in potato soup. Also garlic... I've not seen the Vegeta here but we have similar products like Spike...

Could also add chopped up leeks while cooking and then blend it in for a delicate taste.

So how does it taste?
I am from Norway, and boiled potatoes is a 5-days a week thing, and I really hate the taste of boiled potato after eating it this much :P
Your soup does look good however :)

The taste depends on the ingredients. If there's only salt in the soup, it will taste like boiled potatoes, but if there's something else, the taste could be amazing. That's why I wrote "Pepper and any other ingredients you like" in the intro. You could use almost anything you like. In my country (and not only) there's an ingredient called Vegeta and it can be used with every meal. It totally changes the taste of the food (no matter what it is) and sometimes I use it in this soup. I recommend it :)
