Potatoes are one of the most accessible ingredients to us today. They are the perfect ingredient in so many dishes, even stand-alone in mashed potato recipes. But in soups, potatoes shine differently. They add to the soft consistency of soups and make the filler ingredient we all didn’t know we needed. Even so, they can shine, too.
