Skyrim Potato Soup

SkyrimPotatoSoup

The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim has been a game in my Steam Library for years now, however I only just recently started to play it in earnest. Back when I had more time to stream on my Twitch channel. This game is incredibly in-depth. There is so much to do that you can spends thousands upon thousands of hours playing the game and discovering everything. You could completely deviate off the main quest line and still have tons of content to play through. If you choose to download mods for the game then you can have even more content to play through. It is seriously incredible how much there is to do in this game.

On top of the thousands of hours worth of content, Skyrim also has a nice list of food items that you can find in game, many of which could be easily converted into real life recipes. That is what I decided to do today with Skyrim Potato Soup. The soup that I created from the game is rich and creamy and flavored with leeks (a common ingredient found in Skyrim). My kids aren’t very big soup eaters, but even they devoured this soup and asked for seconds.

Here is a picture of what the in-game version of Skyrim Potato Soup looks like:

The in-game version is a bit chunkier than the version that I made (I like my soups on the smoother side), but otherwise looks fairly similar. I decided to garnish mine with some fresh parsley for a pop of color, but otherwise left it alone. You could certainly top this with other tasty things such as shredded cheese, bacon, green onions, or a dollop of sour cream… use your imagination!

The soup that I made was made in a crock pot as I feel that soups that have been slow cooked for several hours come out with a much richer flavor than if they were cooked for less time on a stove. If you don’t own a crock pot, then feel free to cook it in a large pot on your stove (probably for about an hour).
