Tasty Baked Potato Soup | Lunch

If you enjoy “loaded” baked potatoes, then you’ll love this creamy soup, which

has all of those same great flavours. As with its namesake, you can pile on as

many toppings as you like: vegan bacon, sour cream, and cheddar cheese, plus

minced chives or scallions. This recipe can be made gluten-or soy-free by

choosing gluten-or soy-free toppings. Note that Daiya vegan cheese is both soy-free

and gluten-free.


SERVES 4 TO 6

SLOW COOKER SIZE: 4- TO 6-QUART

COOK TIME: 6 TO 8 HOURS ON LOW

GLUTEN-FREE OPTION

SOY-FREE OPTION


Ingredients


2 teaspoons olive oil (optional)

1 medium-size yellow onion, chopped

3 garlic cloves, minced

4 or 5 large russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch dice (about 3 pounds)

4 cups vegetable broth, plus more if needed

1 to 2 teaspoons salt

½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

4 teaspoons vegan butter (optional)

1 cup plain unsweetened non-dairy milk, plus more if needed

½ cup vegan sour cream, purchased or homemade (recipe follows), for garnish

½ cup shredded vegan cheddar cheese, for garnish (optional)

¼ cup chopped fresh chives or finely minced scallions, for garnish

4 slices vegan bacon, cooked and chopped, for garnish


Instructions


1. For the best flavour, heat the oil in a medium-size skillet over medium-high

heat. Add the onion and sauté until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the

garlic and cook for 1 minute longer. Alternatively, omit the oil and sauté

these ingredients in a few tablespoons of water or combine them in a

microwave-safe bowl with a little water, cover, and microwave for 2

minutes.

2. Transfer the onion mixture to the slow cooker. Add the potatoes, broth, 1

teaspoon salt, and pepper. Cover and cook on low until the potatoes are

soft, 6 to 8 hours.

3. Use a potato masher to mash the potatoes right in the slow cooker, adding

the vegan butter (if using) and the non-dairy milk a little at a time. Taste to

adjust the seasonings, adding up to 1 teaspoon of additional salt, if needed,

depending on the saltiness of your broth. If the soup is too thick, add

additional broth or nondairy milk.

4. Ladle the soup into bowls and top with as many of the garnishes as desired.

Serve hot.
