Potato Soup

final

Potatoes-Can they do no harm?  They are tasty, hearty, cheap, filling and did I mention tasty?  Although there are many dishes that include potatoes I think one of my favorite ways to prepare them is in a simple soup.  A warm bowl of soup.  A steamy pot of earthy goodness. It is just really simple but really delicious.  Just some potatoes and tomatoes.  A few spices and voila!  A masterpiece is created.

WHAT YOU NEED:

-2 potatoes, cubed;
-1 14.5oz. can of diced tomatoes;
-4 cups of vegetable stock or water (or mixture of both);
– 1 bay leaf;
– ½ teaspoon of cumin;
-1 teaspoon of curry powder (yes curry powder);
-salt;
– ½ cup of crumbled cheese (cotija, queso fresco, feta, vegan cheese, etc.);

WHAT YOU DO:

In a medium saucepan cook potatoes with stock until potatoes are tender.
