Trying to recreate "spicy potato soup." Thoughts?

I buy it in the sandwich shop in my suburban office park building, run by a Korean woman. The potatoes are thinly sliced and not cooked to the point of mushiness so the soup has more of a clear broth than creamy consistency. They also don't appear to be browned so they must be added to the broth versus cooked first. Red pepper, with some seeds visible. No other veggies are identifiable so I'm not sure if there is onion/garlic present. Floating on the top of the soup, when served, she puts chopped up breakfast sausage of the same sort served in egg/sausage sandwiches available for breakfast.

How would you make this? So very delicious to the point that I order it even when its in the 90's outside.

  1. I don't know if this is the sort of thing you want, but I make an easy one with sausage and potato and red pepper...
    I brown spicy italian sausage with some red pepper flakes and some onion. Then I add chicken stock and some thinly sliced red potatoes. Right before I serve it, I add some cream, but that's completely optional. Tastes really good. You could add kale as well.

    1. my potato soup with sausage is pretty easy. Onion slices go into hot oil with pinch red pepper flakes. Then, chopped garlic. Add sausage, and brown. Add your liquid, be it chicken stock or even water will be delicious. Bring to simmer, add your potatoes, simmer for five minutes. done.
