Curried Potato and Broccoli Soup

As the chilly months begin to settle in, it's time to start thinking about recipes that will warm you up when the temperatures begin to drop. And, nothing warms you up quicker than a piping hot bowl of soup. This thick and hearty Curried Potato and Broccoli Soup has a medley of robust flavors that celebrate the arrival of fall. Made with chicken stock, broccoli florets, Idaho® potatoes, milk, curry, garlic powder, onions, and butter, this spud-sational soup will make you feel cozier than snuggling up next to a crackling fire.
