creamy potato soup

as i mentioned in my last post, i'm a sucker for crock-pot cooking in the winter. i think it's because i'm home more, and have time for all-day-cooking recipes. this next recipe is the first time i have ever made homemade soup (besides cabbage). gasp, i know! i worked out quite nicely, though - creamy and flavourful.


  • 8 cups water
  • 2 veggie bouillon cubes
  • 5 cups potatoes, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons onion powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2-3 tablespoons hickory bacon salt
  • 2 tablespoons bragg's aminos
  • 14 oz soy milk
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
wash and cube potatoes into bite sized pieces. dissolve the bouillon cubes in 8 cups of boiling water. put all ingredients except milk/flour/corn starch into a crock pot. stew on high for 8 hours or more. about 45 minutes before serving, put milk, flour and corn starch in a contained and shake vigorously. add to the soup and cook for 45 mins-1 hour.

i served with imitation bacon bits on top.

This looks good...how did the vegan chorizo come out? I have been curious if you tried it out with anything?

jessica said...

Curious. I've seen some recipes call for Bragg's or soy sauce. Not sure what the difference is taste wise since I've not had Bragg's. Would soy sauce work here?
