Non Dairy Potato Soup

This is a great alternative to the heavy cream based potato soups out there. Don’t worry; there is no shortage of flavor. This is one of my personal favorites. I love to serve it with roasted pork sandwiches on a cold winter day.

Ingredients

5 lb bag of russet potatoes

1/2 lb of bacon

1 large onion

2 large cans of chicken broth

 Preparation

  1. Chop bacon into bits and brown in a stock pot
  2. Remove bacon when crisp and brown diced onion in bacon fat
  3. Once caramelized, add broth and boil peeled, chunks of potatoes. boil until soft. Add bacon bits back to the pot and blend with a hand blender until smooth. Top with a bit of shredded cheddar cheese. Add salt to taste if necessary 🙂

 

 

For a healthier option, I left out the bacon and used olive oil to brown the onions. You can also use a bit of tarragon for flavor.
