Best Rustic Potato Soup Recipe

At Hilltop Country Day School we take pride in our outdoor classroom and environmental science curriculum. Our fourth graders harvested a wonderful crop of potatoes from our potato patch this fall and from that haul we whipped up a delectable rustic potato soup. From our Hilltop table to yours, enjoy!


  • Potatoes, washed well, cut into 1 inch cubes, no need to peel
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
  • Chicken or vegetable broth, just enough to barely cover the potatoes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Dill or Parsley
  • Milk or cream


  1. Simmer until potatoes are very soft and break apart easily.
  2. Add a pinch of herbs when potatoes are almost done.
  3. Add enough milk or cream to make the soup the consistency you like.
  4. Bring back to a simmer, just enough to heat the milk.
  5. Adjust all ingredients depending upon how much you want to make.
  6. For a creamier soup, use a blender to puree some of the soup.
