Creamy Potato Soup

I’ve seen a few potato soup recipes out there and I was looking to make a creamy soup that delivered without dairy as a base. The nutritional yeast and liquid smoke gives this soup a smoky cheese flavor

3-4 cups of water or vegetarian broth
1 cup of chopped cauliflower
3-4 medium potatoes
1 small onion finely chopped
1 cup red lentils
½ Cup Nutritional Yeast
1-2 tsp liquid smoke
1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp Salt
½ tsp Cayenne Pepper
½ tsp pepper

Add all ingredients together. Bring water/broth to a boil then turn down heat and let simmer for 30-40 minutes.

Take 2-3 cups of the soup and blend on low until smooth. Make sure to cover and hold down the top of the blender with a towel. Depending on your preference for thickness and smoothness, you can blend more or less of the soup or add more water. I actually prefer to keep my chunky instead of smooth and just use a potato masher to thicken this up.

Salt and pepper to taste.

Makes 7-8 servings

  1. Yum Sounds great! I love adding cayenne to things I like the little kick it gives.
