Creamy Gluten Free Potato Soup

Creamy, rich soup is so easy and so good!

Potato soup has to be one of my favorite things to eat and make. It’s so creamy and warming. I made this on one of the coldest days of February-65 degrees. But it was still delicious, even when the sun was out and it felt super hot.

One of my sisters was going vegetarian for awhile, so I made this meatless. Of course, I omitted the bacon on top. I used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth, and modified it to be 100% meatless. You may be thinking, “isn’t bacon what makes soup good?”

Well, yes.

Even though my family is a huge fan of bacon, they still loved this. I’m made it several  times, a few times with meat and then once vegetarian.

Ingredients

6 medium russet potatoes, skinned and chopped into half inch pieces

1 tablespoon butter

1/2 cup chopped yellow or white onion

3/4 cup chopped celery

2 cloves garlic, minced

8 cups vegetable broth (if not vegetarian use chicken broth)

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup gluten free all purpose flour

1 cup heavy whipping cream

3 tablespoons chopped cilantro

salt and pepper, to taste

Cheese, chopped bacon, or cilantro, to garnish


Directions

  1. Melt the 1 tablespoon of butter in a pot over medium heat. Add onion and celery. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until onion is translucent and celery is soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the potatoes and sauté for three minutes. Add vegetable broth and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Reduce down to a simmer, cover, and cook until potatoes are fork tender, about  1 hour.
  4. In a saucepan melt the 1/4 cup of butter over medium heat. Add flour to create a roux. Whisk  constantly for about thirty seconds. Add cream, cilantro and season with salt and pepper. Whisk constantly until thickened, about two minutes. Add roux to soup and mix well.
  5. Blend half the soup in a blender, or blend with an immersion blender for five seconds. Serve with desired garnishes.

  1. I can tell you I tried this soup. It was “Dee-Licious”. I think everyone had 3 helpings. It is hearty but not floury tasting or heavy like most store bought potato soups. Leave you full, warm and light.
