Potato and Cod Soup is such a comforting and delicious soup, full of vegetables that add so much flavor and texture. With onions, carrot, celery, garlic, peppers and tomatoes, they pair so well with the potatoes and the cod.
If you don’t want to have any spiciness and heat in the soup, use a poblano pepper instead of the jalapeno. If you want to add more heat, you can add some cayenne pepper or crushed pepper flakes.
The tomato paste doesn’t really make the soup taste too “tomatoey”, but instead helps to balance out the flavors of the broth in this soup. I think it’s the perfect touch of acidity, but you can choose to omit the tomato paste if you prefer.
