Creamy Rosemary Potato Soup
This soup is rich and flavorful ... the perfect winter meal. It's full of vegetables and has a wonderful texture, smooth and creamy with chunks of yummy potatoes. This soup does have a bit of cream in it, but it's not that heavy. If you're watching your calories though, you can skip the cream. It will still be delicious and creamy.
To get the perfect texture in this Creamy Potato Soup, I used an immersion blender (affiliate link). I highly recommend purchasing one if you don't already own one. It makes blending hot foods SO easy.
Have you ever blended a hot soup in the blender and experienced a scorching explosion of molten soup? Or does that only happen to me? Anyway, with an immersion blender, you just stick it in your pot and blend away ... soup explosion safely averted!
My favorite thing about this Creamy Rosemary Potato Soup? It takes just minutes to make. You sure wouldn't know it from the rich, delicious taste though!
