Cream of Potato Soup
With the addition of onion, carrot, celery and cauliflower, this creamy potato soup has plenty of flavor. Blend to a smooth purée, or add reserved veggies toward the end of processing to create texture.

Do the potatoes get gummy like they do if you whip them too long with a mixer?
I just order my Vitamix and I can't wait to make this soup but I will like to ask if anybody knows if there is any bouillon in the market that will be MSG free?
Can i use small white potatoes instead of the russet potatoes and cook them on the stove instead of the microwave?
Can you use rice milk in this?
is this recipe gluten free?
can I substitute almond milk for regular milk?
Please clarify what to do with the two 1/3 cups of water. And what is the "vegetable water", 1/3 cup from the veggies after you cook them?
This recipe lists 1/3 cup water TWICE. Do you only need the 1/3 cup vegetable water?
