This is an easy, quick, delicious recipe. Most "loaded" potato soups are bland and rely on toppings for flavor, but not this recipe. The fresh thyme and dill add so much flavor - don't skip them.
Just made this for dinner. My husband, who never eats soup, practically licked the bowl. It did take some time, even though I didn't bother blending the stock mixture. I also left out the dill, but otherwise followed the recipe. It was totally amazingly delicious, perfect for chilly evening. We'll be making this all fall and winter for sure.
This is a good easy, weeknight ddinner. It does take longer than 30 minutes specified. It's at least 35 minutes if just add up the time specified, plus additional time for the soup to come to a simmer two different times.
