I mostly use potatoes to thicken my soups. The reason is simple, as many people today have allergies from ingredients like flour, I try to use alternatives in my recipes as much as possible. Other root vegetables like carrot, potato, swede or pumpkin are ideal for thickening soups, as most of these vegetables have a high starch content.
