There’s something about a big bowl of soup on a cool day that just feels so right. And one of my wife’s favorites has always been creamy potato soup.
Of course the classic version is made with cream and milk, thickened with flour, amped up with bacon and topped with cheese. We’re not doing dairy, gluten, or even pork most days, so this is my more allergy-friendly version that eats the same, but with a lot more nutritional oomph.
Of course I have to clarify that it’s not friendly for all food allergies (the base uses almond milk, for example). But we hit quite a few with this little number and anyone you cook it for will really go nuts for it.
Could soy milk be substituted?
My family is 100% gluten free and dairy free and mostly grainfree. We can do pork, so I used pork Italian sausage and added sugar free bacon as a topping with the chives. THIS WAS A HUGE HIT for my whole family. Thank you so much for sharing such amazing allergy-friendly content! Keep it coming!
I made this tonight after drooling over your post;) my veggie averse child loves it!!! I am not telling her how many veggies are in it until she is done;) this one is a keeper!! Thank you????
Oh my goodness, this looks so good!!
What liquid would you recommend to make it dairy and nut free?
I can see how using baked potatoes would make for a better potato soup. Great tip! Will definitely try this. Looks really, really good.
This looks delicious. So talented! Cook book next project! What if you need to be nut and dairy free? What would you add in place?
Looks delicious! Thank you! Do you think rice or coconut milk could be substituted or would it not be as good?
Looks so yummy! Can almond milk be substituted to coconut milk?
This looks great! I may subtract a cup of the almond milk and sub in a 15 oz can of coconut milk to mimic cream. Thanks for sharing!
I can’t wait to make this once it cools down in California! I’m getting my soup list ready!
Are the potatoes skin on or peeled? Looks like a very healthy and hearty soup.
Recipe sounds delicious! Can I ask why you precook the potatoes?
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
