It’s true, I am currently in the sweltering heat here in beautiful sunny San Diego. But you, my friend, may be freezing in other parts of the world. Or at least not yet enjoying all the beauty the spring has for you. In this case, please enjoy a delicious bowl of this vegan potato soup. It will soothe your tummy and bring the sun back to your soul!
I made this soup as one of my lazy recipes: cook the potatoes, then simply throw everything in the blender. Don’t you love those easy peasy soups?
You can even make a huge batch and freeze it, then pour it back in the pot and have it again for dinner.
My favorite part about this vegan potato soup are all the herbs and spices we add to the blender! The garlic and dill, the turmeric, nutritional yeast, and black pepper all make this soup even heartier and healthier.
Lately, I have been trying to add turmeric and black pepper to pretty much every single recipe I make, since turmeric is such an inflammation-fighting superfood, and it can honestly be added to anything without really impacting flavor.
The power of this little root is not to be underestimated, and I highly recommend you include it in your diet every single day with these easy recipes.
Creamy Vegan Potato Soup with Coconut Butter
And now, to our delicious, comforting vegan potato soup! The creaminess of this soup comes not from coconut oil – as you know, I don’t recommend including oil in your diet as it is a processed unhealthy food. Instead, we use coconut butter.
Coconut butter is my favorite creamy-inducing ingredients for vegan soups as it gives them such an amazing flavor, and it does not oxidize when it’s heated, unlike other plant fats. So adding coconut butter to anything hot gets my rating of approval!
Are you ready to make this very easy soup?
