This potato and salami soup recipe suggests that you mash only ¾ of the potatoes in order to achieve a lovely chunky texture, however, if you prefer a creamier, smoother soup, we suggest mashing all of the potatoes that the recipe calls for. Croutons pair incredibly well with this soup, and they are so easy to make! All you need is a French bread loaf, garlic, smoked paprika and chilli flakes, olive oil, and butter. Dice the bread slices, and fry until crispy in the melted butter, and you have got yourself some more delicious crunch to add to your already delectable soup.
Whether you enjoy this dish in Winter or all year round, you are guaranteed a mouthwatering and greatly satisfying taste experience.
