When I decided to make a new vegan potato soup recipe, I wanted a chunky, creamy soup. And I also wanted to include toppings typical to a loaded baked potato. So, I created a loaded vegan potato soup topped with Vegan Coconut Bacon and chives.
A thick and creamy soup can easily be made without plant milk or cashews. Instead, by blending half the soup ingredients, a creamy soup base is attained. However, leaving the rest of the soup chunky gives the perfect combination of loaded baked potato soup.
HOW TO CUT POTATOES INTO EQUAL SIZED PIECES FOR VEGAN POTATO SOUP RECIPE
To cut vegetables, such as potatoes or other vegetables, in equal-sized pieces, I use my favorite Mueller Vegetable Chopper. Not only does it have a small and large chopping blade for quick and easy chopping.
For instance, I cut 6 large baking potatoes, skin left on, using the 13.6 mm dicer. First, I washed my potatoes and scrubbed the outside. Then. I cut my potatoes using the vegetable chopper.
Then, I always rewash my potatoes to remove any excess dirt and debris once they are cut. Use a colander and rinse and toss the potatoes with your hands in cold water.
HOW TO MAKE A QUICK AND EASY SAVORY VEGAN POTATO SOUP
With a few simple ingredients, you can make a quick and easy savory vegan potato soup. All you need is:
- 6 large baking potatoes
- 1 large yellow onion
- 1 shallot
- 1 leek
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 6 cups vegetable broth
- 3 springs rosemary, chopped
- Sea salt and pepper to taste
Combining a shallot, leek, and onion, the vegan potato soup gets its savory flavor.
On the other hand, rosemary has a pronounced woodsy and peppery at the same time.
QUICK AND EASY STEPS TO FOLLOW TO MAKE VEGAN POTATO SOUP
First, in a large soup pot, I saute the onion, leek, and shallot together with the garlic.
Although the leeks and onion sweat and create moisture, you may need to use a little vegetable broth to prevent sticking. Once the onions are translucent, I add all the diced potatoes and pour the vegetable broth to cover them.
Next, I add the seasonings and rosemary and cover and bring to a boil.
As soon as the mixture is boiling, I reduce it to simmer for 30 minutes.
To keep the soup chunky yet creamy, I remove half the soup from the pot and blend it until it's smooth.
Then, I add it back into the soup pot with the vegan potato soup's chunky portion.
As a result, you have a thick and creamy soup with beautiful chunks of potatoes and tiny bites of onions and leeks.
WHAT TOPPINGS ARE BEST FOR A LOADED VEGAN POTATO SOUP RECIPE?
Additionally, once I ladle the soup into the bowls, I like to add a savory garnish and highlight the savory taste with chives.
Coconut bacon, an easy garnish to make, goes perfectly with the potato soup.
On the other hand, the chives and parsley give a fresh green taste to enhance the flavors in the onions, shallot, and leeks.
- Vegan Coconut Bacon
- Fresh, chopped chives
- Fresh, chopped parsley
Because I love to make soup all year long, I have favorite savory soups I consider comfort food.
Not only are these soup recipes my favorites, but they are great entrees and make perfect lunches to go.
