It’s another rainy day here in San Jose. Dark clouds and chilly air leave me curled up on the couch with both a sweater and blanket. The wind was blowing so hard this morning, as we left church, that it actually broke our umbrella. It’s only 59 degrees here but the wind makes it feel much colder.
Thankfully, I made a huge pot of soup the day before so lunch was only a reheat away. 🙂 This loaded dairy-free creamy potato soup was the perfect soup to warm us up.
This whipped potato soup actually makes you thankful for the brisk cold air. It’s one of the best comfort foods. While I agree that some soup should be more broth and light this is NOT one of them.
I am a firm believer that potato soup should be thick, smooth and hearty. Even without the dairy, this soup does not disappoint. In fact, my 4 year old just informed me that this is her favorite soup. Now, every time we have soup and it’s not this dairy-free potato soup she gets extremely disappointed. “Mom, I really wanted the potato soup that’s my favorite” she sadly states. 🙁
I’m a foodie so naturally I love variety when it comes to food. But even I have to agree with her. This creamy potato soup is one of my favorites too, in fact… it’s a family favorite. It has minimal ingredients, it’s super yummy and it’s budget friendly. So, it’s the perfect recipe to pull out when I need to stretch my grocery budget.

Love soup? Then you will definitely want to check out my pumpkin soup or turkey rice soup. Both are dairy-free of course. 🙂
