I Went To A Restaurant And...


The other night, my husband and I went to a local restaurant. It was a chilly evening here in Florida and we both wanted to enjoy a nice soup and salad combo together. As we looked over the menu I quickly realized that my options were limited.

Finding a creamy soup that does not include dairy in it is almost impossible. So my hope of having soup and salad diminishes to... salad.

Now don't get me wrong, I love a good salad, but when you really want a creamy bowl of soup.. you really want a creamy bowl of soup.

I'll Just Make It Myself


So many of my recipes have stemmed from not being able to find them either at the store or a restaurant. I kind of look at as a good thing.

It challenges me to create new, delicious recipes. Probably ones I wouldn't normally make. And well, that's pretty darn cool if you ask me.

So Here Ya Go


Who knew that with some vegan butter, cooked onions, gluten-free flour, cashews, and a few other ingredients that you could put together a creamy base for soup? I had an inclination, but was thrilled when it all came together.

So without further ado, here is the delicious recipe for this Loaded Baked Potato Soup.

  4. Ok, so really long story short, I used to LOVE baked potato soup....until one day in college. So, this one day back many moons ago I got myself a bowl of baked potato soup. I took a bite of it and this CHUNK of FAT made it's way into my mouth. Idk why it was in there but that was my last bowl of baked potato soup. This, however, makes me want to try it again. It HAS been 13 years, after all :P

  9. Using cashew cream in this to add thickness and creaminess is so brilliant! Plus, I love potato soup in pretty much any form.

  12. Thanks Chrissy. I was trying to figure out what I could put in there that wouldn't require even vegan cheese and the cashew cream worked perfectly.

  13. Thanks Jill. I use the Earth Balance vegan butter sticks. They are sometimes hard to find. Had to recently have a local store order a case of them for me and just bought the whole thing to freeze them. LOL!

  17. Annmarie. OH MY! Now that's a story girl. I have a story like that with hot apple cider. LOL! The things that traumatize us. LOL!The chunk of fat sounds like it was an oil of some kind or they had bacon stuff in there. UGH. That makes me gag just writing it.
    I hope you give this recipe a shot. I promise. No chunks of fat in this one for sure!

  21. Hi!

    My husband is allergic to cashews. What can I replace the cashew cream with? Thanks!

  22. Hi Heather,
    You could use some more potatoes, cooked cauliflower, or a dairy-free sour cream.
    Any of those would help to make it more creamy.

    Thanks so much!
