Read these tips to avoid mistakes

  • Keep an eye on the heat when letting the soup simmer. You’ll need to stir often but also not have it so hot the flour starts to burn at the bottom due to too much heat.
  • You do not need to blend this 4 ingredient potato soup recipe unless you don’t want any chunks of potato. The potatoes will break down and mix in as you stir and the soup thickens. There will be potato in every bite naturally.

Storing and reheating the potato soup

Sadly, I would recommend you not freeze these soup due to the heavy cream and the potatoes. The texture will be very different and grainy once thawed. But, you can store it in the refrigerator for up to 4 days without an issue.

For reheating, you can reheat inside a pot. But, reheat on a very gentle heat and you will want to add about 1 cup of water or broth to help it out.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Do I need to add flour to the soup, can I skip it?

I recommend flour for this 4 ingredient potato soup. Yes, the potato has starch and it does thicken the soup. But, with potato soup you want a creamy texture not a loose texture as in something like zuppa Toscana. I have tested the soup without flour and I was not happy with the results.

What potatoes to use for potato soup?

In this recipe I use russet potatoes. You can swap them out for Yukon gold or red potatoes since we are using flour in the recipe. But, due to the cook, I wanted a more starchy potato and it works best. The other potatoes don’t hold up their texture with a long cook.
