Frequently Asked Questions
What Can I Do To Have a Thicker Soup?
If you want your potato soup to be thicker and richer, it is best to use thickeners — flour, cornstarch, and other thickening agents. The thickeners will help avoid the starch from clumping together and evenly dissolves the soup, making it thicker and creamier.
