Oddly, I had never considered doing that! Well, that's my next thing to try with mashed potatoes.

I have always considered mashed potatoes to be a great canvas to work on!

Think you might like them then. I got the idea on one occasion making the soup and I hadn't put enough stock in there and it was so thick!!! Just make sure the leeks are in small pieces otherwise it is like having mashed potato with leeks as opposed to having them through the mashed potato if you get my distinction.

I just made the soup for lunch. I used Wolfgang Puck's organic veggie broth in lieu of water. Turned out great. I also added dried dill to my bowl of soup since DH dislikes dill. It was great.

I bet the dill was great with it...I'll have to try that one next. And veggie broth would be really nice. Again, I am not crazy about using chicken stick with potato soup, as I think it overpowers it, but veggie would be light enough.

I can't imagine any soup without some dill.

I use dill in my Borscht as well as salmon soup...other than that not much in soups, but you have convinced me to try it with the potato soup for sure.

Now, speaking of that Borscht, I sent you an e-mail thru your site, you really need to reconsider that recipe.

Ah, that was you! The email address you gave me was incomplete, so I could not answer. I think you are referencing the addition of lime?

If so, it's something that I like, and it really seems to work. But I agree it is hardly authentic: the closest limes would be in Greece, and I think there was limited importation from there back in the day. I will add a note on the page in question to state that it is simply something I like, and not "traditional".

Thanks for the input.

mmm, this sounds great and very inexpensive! We are having a soup swap (we all bring half gallon soup servings - enough for 8) and then we swap soups! We have done this for our cookie exchanges and exchanges are great fun! I am in a Moms Group and I hope they like this recipe - I think I might make my own veggie stock and add half stock and half water :)

Thanks again!

Tara
