Potato basil soup
If you don’t have chicken or vegetable stock, you can use water, just be sure there is enough salt to bring out the flavor of the vegetables. Adding basil here is not for garnish, it is for flavor. The sharpness of the basil will pair well with the sweet and simple flavors of the soup.
