Loaded Potato Soup (Dairy Free!)

 

 

 

 

 

*This is kind of a non recipe recipe. I don’t measure my spices, I just throw them in, taste, and adjust accordingly.*

Loaded Potato Soup

Ingredients:

6-7 cups peeled, cubed potatoes

1 large onion, diced

Salt to taste

Pepper to Taste

Onion Powder to taste

Garlic Powder to taste

Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy Blend to taste

Earth’s Balance Buttery Spread

6-8 Slices Bacon, crisped and crumbled

Directions:

Boil potatoes and onions until potatoes are fork tender. (approximately 16 minutes) Don’t drain! Add in the Earth’s Balance, I used about 1/2 a cup, and your spices and mash until soupy. Taste and adjust until you have the flavor you want, serve, and garnish with bacon crumbles.

So this recipe isn’t really a recipe so much as a springboard for ideas. Next time I think I might add browned sausage and forgo the bacon to make it a more filling meal. If you have broth on hand, like vegetable or chicken broth, drain those potatoes and replace the liquid with that! I can’t do chicken and I was out of veggie broth, so I just used the starchy cooking water.

Another way to make this is to use leftover mashed potatoes. That’s essentially what we made here, just soupified. Yes, new word, haha. I would  add water or broth, spices to taste, and sauteed onions to the mashed potatoes and just make soup from that. Super easy, right?

I hope this ‘recipe’ is helpful to you! Take the idea and run with it! It’s another totally adaptable, customizable dish that you can tailor to fit your needs without much effort! Enjoy and please let me know how it goes!
