The flavor of this soup was very good. Before we made it, we were wondering how the taste would be like; we were worried about lacking of flavor, but the result definitely surprised us a lot, it came out quite tasty and flavorful. We followed the recipe, and it seemed these a few simple ingredients worked well together, now it has become one of our favorite potato soup recipes!
