As the name of this recipe rather implies this is one of those comfort foods when recovering from some manner of bug that has affected/afflicted your regular eating regiment. Whether your just beginning to recover from this years new and improved intestinal bug and are in want of something soothing but easily digested or are in the depths of the whatever flue pandemic is circulating… This is the bowl of soup you didn’t know you really wanted!!! A very soothing sick day dish that'll help get you on the mend! Adjust any and all amounts to suit your taste!
Serves two adults:
3 Medium sized potatoes peeled and diced into 3/8 to 1/2” cubes.
Enough water in the pot to cover the potatoes by 1 to 3” (depending on how much broth you desire).
1 tbs to 2 tbs Margarine (we prefer Smart Balance due in no small part to its fine flavor)
1 to 2+ tsp’s salt (adjust to your taste!)

¼ tsp (more or less) Black Pepper 
Boil until potatoes are tender and broth is slightly cloudy.

Serve while quite hot to not less than lukewarm.

My grandma makes something real similar, except she adds a little flour to the mix to thicken up the broth. It is good anytime but especially when your stomach ain't quite right.

That's right!

My Dad made potato soup for us kids when we were sick. OMG!!! so much black pepper we would "get better" when we heard he was going to make some!:lol:

I was 40 years old before I would try some again; wife makes it and it is great. Where was she when I was a kid?:lol::lol:

I had need for sick food and I could not chew because I had 132 stitches in face. 

Wife took your potato soup recipe or one just like it, some chicken pieces, some green stuff, some carrots, and using that magic bullet grinder she pulped it all into a soup.  Almost no spices at all.  Using a large diameter (1/4 inch) straw I ate bfast lunch dinner for 4 days this way.     

Surprisingly it did not have a bad flavor at all.  Wife varied it up with beef instead of chicken, all kinds of different vegetables. even scrambled eggs and put them in the mix.

When I say pulped, I should say she just about atomized it.  There was no discernible meat or vegetable.  Just a nice smelling liquid.   It went down easy, stayed down, and digested easily. 

This is highly recommended.

In the potato soup recipe I would swear my Mom put milk in the soup at some point.

+1 on the milk. We drain the water then add milk and butter with a little corn starch for thickening. For the not sick occasions add some real bacon bits, green onions, and sour cream. Top your bowl with grated colby jack cheese and you've got yourself some baked potato soup. Good stuff on a cold winter day.

I forgot about the spring onions.  We always grew them and they were delicious with the potato soup.
