This German Potato horseradish soup is easy to make and inexpensive too! I like the fact that healthy and tasty food does not have to be expensive. It was very common in Germany to serve only meat for the Sunday lunch such as chicken, beef or pork. During the week meatless dishes were served such as vegetable stews and soups, or spinach with boiled potatoes and fried eggs. The potato horseradish soup can be the starter for a menu, and makes a fantastic soup during the cold winter months. Potatoes are used a lot in German dishes especially in soups. Happy Cooking!
