Creamy Potato Soup Recipe

One of America’s favorite comfort foods, potato soup is served everywhere from steakhouses to country diners. Hi, I’m chef Jason Hill of Chef Tips and today we’re making a creamy potato soup recipe that’s dressed up with smoked gouda cheese.

If you can’t find smoked gouda, a steakhouse secret to that creamy texture is a processed cheese such as Velveeta.

Creamy Potato Cheese Soup

1 tablespoon dried basil
1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) butter
2 cups shredded smoked Gouda cheese
6 small red potatoes, diced and reserved in cold water to prevent browning
2 diced carrots
2 diced celery stalks
1 white onion, diced
1 teaspoon garlic-shallot puree (or 2 cloves garlic, crushed)
2 cups heavy cream
6 cups vegetarian broth or water

Turn stock pot on medium high. Melt butter. Add celery, onion, carrots. Cook down until the onions are translucent. Add basil and garlic-shallot puree. After 3 minutes, add potatoes and stir another 3 minutes.

Carefully pour in 6 cups chicken broth. Boil for 20 minutes, then stir in a roux made from 4 tablespoons flour and 4 tablespoons butter.

Wait a few minutes for the soup to thicken slightly. Add cream. Whisk and simmer for 20 minutes.

Slowly stir in cheese and melt it down. After cheese is melted, pour into bowls and season with salt and fresh cracked pepper
