      I would hope that you could substitute vege stock for the chicken stock? Also, I am not seeing the amount of stock needed. Help!

        You can most certainly use vegetable stock as a substitute for the chicken stock, and 3 cups of stock is what the recipe uses. Thank you. Let me know how it turns out.

      I LOVE potato soup and am intrigued about adding sweet potatoes – which I’m not a huge fan of – I wonder how much the taste changes? But so much healthier right?

      My mom loves sweet potatoes but I only occasionally eat them in a sweet potato pie. This looks good though so I might taste it if she makes it.
