{dairy free} Creamy Potato Soup

Creamy potato soup...with ZERO dairy...yep! I have accomplished it. This isn't completely meatless as I used chicken stock.  I think it adds nice flavor (without adding butter).  I wanted to try to get it completely dairy free, but still seem like a comfort food. 

{dairy free} Creamy Potato Soup


  • 6-8 gold potatoes (scrubbed and diced with skin left on)
  • one small onion (chopped)
  • 1 Tbps Organic EVOO (I recommend Kirkland brand at Costco)
  • one small leek (whites/light greens only, chopped, rinsed)
  • 4 garlic cloves(minced)
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 2 cups plain rice milk
  • 2 cups organic low sodium chicken stock


1) Saute leeks and onions in EVOO and garlic in a large pot. 
2) Add thyme, potatoes, rice milk, and chicken stock to the pot. 
3) Cook until potatoes are tender. 
4) Ladle out about 3 cups into Vitamix and blend until creamy. Pour the mixture back in to pot. Salt and pepper to taste.

Top with green onions (and cheese if you if aren't wanting to keep this dairy free). In my opinion it's just as food without the cheese in this recipe. 

Serve with bread (or clean crackers) and large salad.  ENJOY. 

NOTE: Make sure to soak the leeks after they are chopped to get all the dirt off of them. Then rinse. Make sure you use gold potatoes as they have a more creamier taste.
