Dairy-Free Baked Potato Soup



How many two-hour school delays equal a snow day to make up? Asking for a friend.

Here is a recipe for one of my favorite wintertime soups, adapted from Stephanie O’Dea’s recipe at Crockpot 365. It will cook in the crockpot all day and make your house smell wonderful while you’re out shoveling and trying to get the car to start.

Dairy-Free Baked Potato Soup
Serves 12
Creamy, Dairy-Free Baked Potato Soup for the Slow Cooker
  1. 5 lbs russet potatoes, peeled and cut in 1 to 2-inch chunks

  5. 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  6. 1/4 teaspoon red pepper
  7. 2 quarts chicken broth
  8. 1 (8-ounce) package dairy-free cream cheese (I use Tofutti)

  3. Peel and dice the potatoes, and put them into the stoneware.
  4. Add the onion and garlic.
  5. Sprinkle in the seasonings.
  6. Pour in the broth.
  7. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours, or on high for 4 hours until the potatoes are fork-tender.
  8. Using an immersion blender, puree the soup until smooth.
  9. Add the dairy-free cream cheese and dairy-free sour cream by the spoonful.
  10. Replace the lid.
  11. Cook on high for about 30 minutes, or until the cream cheese and sour cream are dissolved.
