Just dug this thread up because we went to Boma and DH absolutely loved this soup!

If the OP happens to see this, I'm wondering, about how many potatoes make up 10 ounces (or the 2 oz. onion, flour, etc.)?

Thanks!!

ETA: For some reason this is not coming up on the cooking board, could the mods please move it? Thanks!

I'm not the OP, but I do have some of those conversions for you.

Flour
1 oz = 4 Tbl or ¼ cup
Onion
1 cup = 4 oz sliced or 5+ oz chopped
Potatoes, cooked
1 cup = 8 oz
Potatoes, raw
1 cup = 6 oz
Bacon
1 cup = 8 oz

This is a good resource for conversions: http://www.recipes4us.co.uk/us_cups_to_weight.htm
