Rich, hearty and satisfying vegan potato soup. Super easy, hugely delicious and so filling you can have it as a main course!
This vegan potato soup will blow your mind. I know this because my mind was totally blown.
I’m a big soup fan and absolutely love a good soup.
But in all my years of making soups, I had never tried to make a potato soup. Boy, have I been missing out!
Don’t be fooled by the color, this aint no butternut squash soup, the color comes from the 2 carrots I added. Carrots are great to add to soups, they add texture, color and flavor.
But seriously, this is a potato soup. It’s wonderfully rich, hearty and delicious. And as good as it is on the first go, it’s even better the next day. So when you make this you know you have some good eating ahead.
And while we generally tend to think of soups as appetizers, and sure, they are that too, this one is so filling there is no need for a main course.
This vegan potato soup is ready in under an hour (50 minutes) and most of that time is just spent doing its thing on the stove without any involvement needed from you, so it’s easy and fun to make.
And if you love a good potato soup, then you’ll likely love our vegan potato leek soup too.
