I gave my favorite Crock Pot Vegetarian Potato Soup recipe a makeover and it’s better than ever!
Don’t you just love baked potato soup? It’s something I always want if I see it on a menu. Sadly the version in the restaurant may have chicken stock and most likely has all sorts of heavy cream and butter. Sure, there is a time and place for the indulgent kind… but my Crock Pot Vegetarian Potato Soup recipe is of course a little bit healthier.
Because that’s how we roll, my friends!
You cook the soup all day in your Crock Pot or slow cooker. The goal is to get the potatoes nice and soft.
To get the soup thick and creamy you use a handy dandy immersion blender. Seriously, if you don’t have one yet… just click over and hit checkout on Amazon. <—affiliate link! I use mine all the time when I’m making soups.
At the end you stir in the sharp cheddar and greek yogurt to get some creaminess without the cream.
Serve my Crock Pot Vegetarian Potato Soup recipe with your favorite baked potato toppings like extra sharp cheddar and green onions. If you’re in a family with carnivores… you could always give them some bacon too. 🙂 At least that’s what makes the Hubs happy.
I will however stick to my cheese and green onions. I love the fresh crunch and color with adding them.
This soup is thick, creamy and just screams yummy comfort food. It’s filling and really sticks to the bones… as they say!
This recipe for Crock Pot Vegetarian Potato Soup recipe is one I’ve modified over time and I really enjoy it. It’s very satisfying when you just need a little comfort food and is very easy to make. I hope you’ll try it and enjoy it as much as I do!
