Frequently Asked Questions: Q: How do you thicken potato soup? A: Potato soup can be thickened by adding diced potatoes, which helps to absorb liquid and increase the soup’s overall thickness.

Q: How long does potato soup last in the refrigerator? A: Potato soup can be safely stored in the refrigerator for 4-5 days. To ensure the best quality, it is recommended to consume the soup within this timeframe. For optimal freshness, store in an airtight container and reheat when ready to serve.

Q: What other ingredients can I add to potato soup? A: Potato soup is incredibly versatile and can be adapted to suit any preferences. Other ingredients such as vegetables, herbs, and/or spices can be added to vary the flavor.
