Recipe Tips

  • If you prefer a chunky potato soup, then remove and blitz one-third of the mixture. Add this back into the rest of the soup to help thicken it.
  • The soup should be nice and thick by the time you’re ready to serve. If it is too thick then add some more liquid. Alternative, if it is too thin, then thicken it using some cornstarch and water.
  • There are many different varieties of potato. For this recipe, I used Yukon golds, but you can use any type. The soup might not be as nice with some varieties.
  • Use a stick blender to blitz the soup in the slow cooker. It's a lot easier than having to transfer it to a food processor then back to the slow cooker.
  • The sour cream can be replaced with just plain Greek yogurt or even heavy cream. For the best result, I highly recommend sticking to the sour cream.
