in a bowl of cool water for 10-20 minutes.
- Feel free to use a combination of russet and yellow (Yukon) potatoes.
- Use my easy zero waste vegetable broth!
- If you want to make this oil free consider using extra vegetable broth to sauté with.
- If you want your soup to be a little chunky, don't blend to smoothness.
- If you don't have an immersion blender, our into your blender in batches.
