Sharing is caring!

Hello guys, I’ve realized that I haven’t shared with you any soup recipe so far. Well it’s about time I share with you one of my family’s favorite soup recipes, potato soup with bell peppers and sausage.

This potato soup…

  • is so easy and absolutely delicious. It tastes even better the next day 😉
  • uses a handful of ingredients
  • takes 30 minutes to make including the preparation time, just like spinach feta pinwheels
  • and is very versatile. You can use this recipe as a base and add pretty much whatever you want to it.

What makes this soup over – the – top good is that you blend the soup, fold in chunks of precooked vegetables and top it with browned sausage. Every time I make this beauty, it’s always a hit at our house! Even my husband, who is not a fan of soups and my 1,5 – year – old daughter raves about it. So it’s definitely a keeper!

The potato soup makes a perfect meal on its own, but you can also fill it in shot-type glasses and serve it as a starter.

So if you’re looking for a super delicious potato soup recipe that the whole family will love or to warm you up on chilly days, then you should definitely give this one a go!!
