Creamy Vegan Potato Soup

1 T extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 cup chopped yellow onion
1 cup chopped carrots
1 cup sliced celery
3 cloves garlic, minced
a nice splash of white cooking wine (optional)
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon dried thyme
5 large potatoes (Russet or Yukon is preferred)
4 cups vegetable stock
2 cups unsweetened almond milk


1. Heat oil in large 4-quart pot over medium heat.

2. Add onions, carrots, celery in oil for approximately 7 minutes until veggies are soft. (Add garlic in at the last 2 minutes of cooking.)

3. Stir in sea salt and thyme.

4. If onions are sticking to the pan, add a splash (approximately 1/4 cup) of white cooking wine to the pot and scrap the stuck on onions off the bottom of pan.

5. Add vegetable stock to mixture, cover and bring to a boil.

6. Once soup is boiling, add potatoes and simmer with lid on for 15-20 minutes.

7. Remove soup from burner and add approximately 2 cups (or more depending on if you like it more chunkier or thinner) of the soup to blender. Blend quickly until smooth. (If you blend too long it will get too thick and starchy). Return to pot and stir.

8. Add 2 cups of almond milk and stir. Return to burner and warm over low heat until thoroughly heated. Serve hot. Season with more salt, if desired.

Yields: 7 cups


  1. Do we put the potatoes in whole, or cut them up? should they be peeled?

  2. This was absolutely delicious! Easy to make and nutritious. Mine was a bit thick (my potatoes may have been larger than yours, I added more almond milk and a bit more vegetable broth paste. I also added green chilies for a bit of spice. It was wonderful, thank you for the recipe.
