Potato Flakes For Thick Potato Soup

I use instant potato flakes to thicken my potato soup. What else would you use!

When my soups aren't thick enough, I just melt tbsp of butter in a pan and whisk in 2 tbsp of flour. Be sure to blend thoroughly and add to soup mixture.

Right, or cornstarch, butter, etc. All this was before instant potatoes, when I learned to cook!

I just mash some of the potatoes. It works for me. Hope it works for you.

Potato flakes can be used to thicken all kinds of soups. You can even use them in place of cornstarch or flour when making gravy.

I use a food processor and process 2 large potatoes. It thickens the soup nicely. And you still have the flavor of potato. I do this with my clam chowder, corn chowder, and even a beef stew if I want it thicker. It is far healthier than using flour or cornstarch.
