Creamy Double Potato Soup

Creamy Double Potato Soup (via abeautifulmess.com) I call this soup creamy because, well, it is, but it doesn’t have any actual cream in it. It’s got a silky smooth texture and a subtle taste of cheese, but it’s still totally vegan-friendly. This is a super comforting soup that you can feel good about eating.

How to make potato soup in the crockpotCreamy Double Potato Soup, serves 4-5. (or you can save some for another night and serve less)

2 russet potatoes
2 sweet potatoes
1 tablespoon chopped onion (much less than pictured above!)
8-10 baby carrots, or 2-3 regular (I always have baby ones around for snacking)
3 cloves of garlic
32 oz. vegetable stock
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
salt and pepper to taste

First I peeled and gave my potatoes a rough chop. I cut up the onion and minced the garlic. Then I added all that to my crockpot along with the vegetable stock. I set my timer to cook on low for 8 hours.

Easy crockpot soup recipesLater that day I came home and added the nutritional yeast and cayenne. I used an immersion blender to blend everything together right in my crockpot, and that’s how I got that silky smooth texture. Then taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Most store bought stocks will vary a great deal in how much sodium they contain, so wait to season with more salt until you can taste the (almost) finished soup.

If you’ve never cooked with nutritional yeast before, I highly recommend you try it! It’s got a cheesy taste to it. So it’s a great way to add that flavor without adding any dairy.

Creamy Double Potato Soup (via abeautifulmess.com) Serve with a few chopped green onions, bread or roasted chickpeas. Wear comfy socks and get your Netflix on because this is a sit down and enjoy yourself kind of dinner. 🙂 If you don’t consume all the soup in one day, you can freeze leftovers in ice cube trays and thaw the cubes in a pot when you want to eat it another night. Enjoy! xo. Emma

  • Oh, awesome! I have been looking for new slow cooker recipes and I looooove potatoes, so I am definitely going to try this!!

  • Ooooo potato soup is my favourite and russet potatoes go so creamy! I haven’t cooked with nutritional yeast yet so that’s totally on the list. I’m loving chili at the moment so I’d add that in. Bec

  • YES for vegan soups! and I love how this one has potato in it – I find those so satisfying and amazing when the weather starts to cool down.

  • This looks amazing – I am definitely going to make it and I LOVE when you do vegan and grain free!!! Keep them coming, please:)

  • Do you add the carrots with the potatoes at the beginning? I didn’t see any mention of them after the ingredient list, but it seems like that would make sense with a crockpot. Looking forward to trying it out!

  • Will definitely give this a try. I find my slow cooker really useful when I am working all day but tend to do the same few recipes again and again. Would definitely welcome more slow cooker recipes

  • Love this! Especially now the days are getting colder and rainier, I love to make a good soup!

  • Mmmh, that sounds perfect for the weird weather we have since september started!
    Emma, I just had a question: how long would you cook it without a crockpot? Just boil until smooth? Do you think a pressure cooker helps?
    Thanks a lot!!

  • This is so autumnal. I loooove soups and autumn is the perfect time when ever it s gloomy and rainy outside and you come home from a long long day a soup is the perfect thing to warm up and feel cozy.
    Especially potato soup is so savoury. I love it with leek or spring onion 🙂 delicious…or maybe little sausages 😉

  • Yum! When it gets a little chillier here where I’m from I’m definitely going to be trying this recipe out.
