If you have some dietary restrictions or are love the vegan lifestyle, it doesn’t mean you have to eat less or bland food! Potato soup is a dish that can easily be made vegan. The cook time is less than an hour, and the dish is naturally gluten-free and nut-free!
It can easily be whipped up in a slow cooker, on the Bruner, or in an Instant Pot. What’s the secret ingredient, you ask? The star of the dish is the milk of cocoa or coconut milk. It provides the soup with a rich, creamy consistency which is usually missing from vegan variants.
Cook time: 45 minutes.
List of ingredients used in vegan potato soup- Serves 2 People
- 2 tablespoons Vegan butter, it can be easily found in shops.
- 1 cup chopped Vegetables like onion, celery, and carrots to add some varied flavors.
- 4 cloves Garlic
- 4 tablespoons Flour
- 2 cups Milk, dairy, or non-dairy alternatives like Silk Cashew Milk used here

How To Cook Vegan Potato Soup?
Put the vegan butter in the pan and start melting it. Now add your vegetables and cook them until they smooth for about 10 minutes. Apply the garlic and let it cook for a minute until it’s scented.
Sprinkle the flour now, a little at a time. Slowly add in the soy milk or the substitute you have, work out any lumps. Gradually stir in the vegetable broth (reserving half a cup). Add chopped potatoes and your herbs.
Simmer for 30 minutes and add the remaining broth as per consistency choice.
Some Other Tips
- Chop the potatoes in small pieces rather than in large pieces while slicing them. The ideal size is half-inch cubes.
- Do not add in the entire broth at once. You should add just a little to half the bowl until the soup is smooth! The consistency is highly adaptable.
- Soup purification is optional. Leave the potatoes as it is if you prefer a textured soup.
- If you want a uniform consistency, you can blend the soup in a standard blender.
- Allow the guests to personalize the soup with a topping selection like croutons.
- Mix a whole or gluten-free flour table cube.
Go for the family and eat the entire healthy meal at once, or reheat the leftover soup anytime you want a bowl of warmth. Vegan bacon makes the best topping. Some substitutes for bacon bits are vegetables, roast potato bits, or a scoop of homemade vegan sour cream. Some shredded vegan cheese and sliced green onions can work as well! Bon appetit!
