Hearty and Heart-Healthy Potato Soup

We think this is one of the best potato soup recipes for at least two reasons: In addition to being hearty and heart-healthy, this soup is prepared in one pot -- making cleanup a cinch.


  • 2 pounds potatoes, scrubbed and cut in 1/2-inch cubes (about 5 cups) 
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 10-ounce packages frozen chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped dried tomatoes
  • 2 pint, 14 ounce can (46 ounces total) low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups shredded, cooked turkey
  • 3 cups packaged, chopped, frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
  • freshly ground pepper


  1. In heavy soup pot, heat oil on high and stir in onions. Cook, stirring occasionally for about 20 minutes or until well browned.
  2. Add potatoes, dried tomatoes and broth.
  3. Bring to boil and cook covered for 10 minutes or until tender.
  4. Add turkey and vegetables, return to boil and cook 6 - 8 minutes.
  5. Top with freshly ground pepper.

Cream of Potato-Carrot Soup

Creamy potato soups are always some of the most requested. We choose this as another best potato soup recipe for its creaminess and flavor. Make it in your pressure cooker for added ease.


  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into thin slices
  • 5 large carrots, peeled and cut into thin slices
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 2 32-ounce cans chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 cup milk (or more if desired)
  • 8 ounces of sour cream


  1. In cooker melt butter. Add potatoes and carrots, stirring frequently on medium heat for 5 minutes. Add chicken broth and cumin.
  2. Close lid, bring to high pressure, then lower heat and pressure cook for 12 minutes. Release pressure according to manufacturer's directions, open lid and allow to cool slightly.
  3. Puree soup mixture in batches in blender or food processor with milk, bringing to a creamy consistency.
  4. Return pureed soup to cooker, heat until hot.
  5. When serving, add a dollop of sour cream to soup and stir.
