4 Ingredient Potato Soup

4 Ingredient Potato Soup


This simple 4 ingredient potato soup is delicious and not expensive to make! Try this lusciously creamy potato soup for your next week night supper.


  • 3 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 2 1/2 cups whole milk or 2%
  • 10 green onions, chop only the green parts, use the rest in another recipe)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt (or garlic powder with salt)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place the cubed potatoes into a large soup pot. Fill with water until the potatoes are covered.
  2. Over high heat, bring the water to a boil.
  3. Once boiling, lower the heat to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are easily pierced and broken apart with a fork (about 15-20 minutes).
  4. Remove the pot from the heat and drain the water until only a half inch of water is left at the bottom. No need to measure that it’s exactly half and inch, just eyeball it.
  5. Next add the garlic salt, milk, salt and pepper to the soup pot.
  6. Now a judgement call. If you want the soup chunky you can mash the potatoes with a fork. If you want a creamier soup you can use a potato masher. If you want the creamiest of creamy soups you can use an immersion blender (or a regular blender).
  7. Cook on low heat for a few minutes until it’s nice and hot.
  8. Ladle into bowls, add your toppers and serve!


If you don’t have garlic salt, you can use garlic powder and salt.
