Yes it’s true. You can make a creamy potato soup with absolutely no dairy whatsoever. Its a hearty, thick, chunky, soup that is totally healthy and delicious. All it takes is potatoes and some seasonings.

A big steaming bowl of this with a chunk of crusty bread on the side is perfect for a chilly winter day. (Though we eat it year round at our house.) Visual steps are below plus a printable recipe at the very bottom of this post. Give it a try and see what you think!

Creamy DAIRY FREE Potato Soup

Ingredients
  • 2 TB Olive Oil
  • 2 Onions Diced
  • 3 Small Bay Leaves
  • 2 Pounds Potatoes, Peeled, Sliced Thin or Small ½" to ¾" Cubes
  • Salt
  • Pepper
OPTIONAL
  • Broccoli florets, fresh or frozen
Instructions
  1. Add olive oil into a large, deep pan or soup pot. Add potatoes, onions and bay leaves.
  2. Saute over medium heat about 10 minutes stirring frequently until the onions just start to turn light brown and a glaze builds up on the bottom of the pan. (Be careful to keep the heat low enough that the potatoes don't burn on the bottom.)
  3. Add in ½ tsp salt and 1 cup of water.
  4. Scrape the bottom of the pan to loosen the solids that have built up. Again, these solids should be light brown and not burnt.
  5. Add 4 cups additional water. Bring to boil, lower and simmer partially covered until the potatoes are soft, 20 to 30 minutes.
OPTIONAL: If using broccoli add it into the pot when there is 10 minutes left to cook.
  1. Remove the bay leaves and season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
TO MAKE IT CREAMY
  1. **IMPORTANT** Let your soup cool a good bit before placing it in the blender. Otherwise steam will build up and it can shoot out the top and scald you.
  2. Take ½ the soup out. In SMALL batches place in blender and blend till creamy. Add blended soup back into the pot and stir.
  3. Serve with crusty bread.
