Bring on the cold weather and all the soups! Okay, it’s still 90 degrees here but in the morning it’s 60 degrees so I believe that’s cause to celebrate.
I’m working like crazy on a lot of fun comfort food recipes for y’all so there’s plenty more to come. Today though it’s all about this 30 Minute Dairy Free Loaded Potato Soup.
It is so creamy. When I say it’s creamy I mean it’s really truly very creamy.
It contains no milk or cheese which you’ll find in traditional potato soup. This means it’s Whole30 compliant. Plus it’s just plain proof that you can absolutely enjoy satisfying soups without relying on dairy.
Ladle big spoonfuls into bowls and top with fresh chopped chives and bacon. If you want to really trip guests up add a drizzle of canned coconut milk. It won’t add any coconut flavor since it’s so little but people do a double take when they see it on anything dairy free.
Now who is ready for some 30 Minute Dairy Free Loaded Potato Soup?
30 Minute Dairy Free Loaded Potato Soup
- 2.5 lbs potatoes peeled and diced
- 32 oz chicken stock
- 1/2 white or yellow onion sliced
- 1 tablespoon cooking fat of choice ghee, olive oil, or coconut oil
- 1 cup canned coconut milk
- 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme or dried chives
Optional toppings: fresh chopped chives, crispy bacon, drizzle of canned coconut milk
Add chicken stock and potatoes (peeled and dice into 1 inch cubes) to a soup pot. Bring to boiling and cook for approximately 5 - 8 minutes or until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork. Be careful to not overcook your potatoes or you'll end up decreasing the amount of chicken stock you have.
Once cooked, remove 1 cup of the diced potatoes from chicken stock. Set aside in a separate dish.
Saute onion in cooking fat of choice until tender. (For a bit of dairy use ghee. For dairy free use coconut oil or olive oil.)
Blend the diced potatoes (excluding the 1 cup you set aside), sauteed onion, chicken stock, and 1 cup canned coconut milk until smooth.
Pour back into your pot. Add the 1 cup diced potatoes you'd set aside earlier, salt, pepper, and dried thyme (or dried chives). Stir.
Ladle the finished soup into bowls and top with fresh chopped chives and crispy bacon.
If you accidentally boil your potatoes too long you can still recover! Just add a little extra chicken stock as you're blending until you get the consistency you want.
