Creamy Chipotle Potato Soup


I think that the food group people worry about missing the most when going plant-based is dairy. Which isn't surprising because not only is it actually addictive, the taste and texture is seen as hard to mimic.

Nowadays, this couldn't be further from the truth.

With the development of nut cheeses as well as the soy and tapioca based ones, there is a wide array to choose from on that end. They are great transition foods, and a treat now and again.

There are some things that can make creamy delicious dishes without any of them AND be low-fat. The magic is in the potatoes! (or cauliflower, but that's for another post)

I also used a little homemade coconut milk to make it even more decadent, but it isn't essential if you want to keep this meal fat-free.

You can choose to top this with any vegetables, but I found that roasted broccoli was the perfect compliment. Any wilted greens would also work very well.

Creamy Chipotle Potato Soup

A crazy creamy soup made simply from quality potatoes with a nice kick of chipotle and some green vegetables to top.



Prep Time
15 Minutes

Cooking Time
25 Minutes


  • 10-12 medium potatoes
  • 2-3 cup water or veg broth
  • 1 large onion - diced
  • 3/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tbsp chipotle flakes
  • 1 cup coconut milk - opt
  • 1 head broccoli - cut into florets
  • 1 medium onion - sliced


  • Pre-heat the oven to 400F.
  • On a cookie sheet, spread out the broccoli and medium onion and roast for 20-25 minutes, until cooked through.
  • In a large pot, boil the potatoes until tender. I always slice them into smaller pieces to speed up the process. Whole potatoes take an eternity.
  • Drain the cooking water and in batches, blend the potatoes with the rest of the ingredients, making sure to use enough liquid for each batch to get super smooth and creamy. Put it all back in the same pot, or soup container thing (see pictures, I can’t think of the proper name…). Either top the serving bowl with the broccoli mix, or each individual bowl.
  • Serve hot, with a simple salad.
  • Enjoy!!
ALSO: as I have mentioned I have some plans to grow the blog. I would LOVE your input and have put together a short 2 minute survey. I would be eternally grateful if you could fill it out.
