This creamy potato vegetable soup is vegan, healthy, and full of liver cleansing vegetables and plant-based protein. I made this potato vegetable soup in a slow cooker, but you can make it on the stovetop in a soup pot.
The soup is spicy, savory, hearty, and creamy all in one. Cajun seasoning and sriracha sauce add the perfect amount of warming spice. Rosemary and thyme are the best savory spiced to flavor a creamy potato soup.
I wanted to make a soup that tasted like a vegetarian pot pie soup that was hearty and creamy. I’m pretty sure this soup hits the spot and satisfies a pot pie craving!
The soup is in a creamy base of blended cashews and hemp seeds for the ultimate creamy vegan potato soup. I ran out of cashews when making this soup, so I substituted the remaining amount with hemp seeds, and it turned out delicious. I used ¾ cup cashews and ¼ cup hemp seeds blended with 1 cup of water to make the creamy base. If you don’t have hemp seeds, you can use an entire cup of cashews blended with water to make this creamy potato vegetable soup.
I used three cubes of vegetable stock dissolved in 6 cups of water to make the vegetable stock. Using vegetable stock cubes to make a vegetarian soup stock is excellent for flavoring the soup and is much cheaper than buying a pre-made vegetable stock.
Making this healthy potato vegetable soup is an excellent way to save money on your grocery bill as it serves 4-6 people. Potatoes, carrots and frozen peas, and corn are all healthy, budget-friendly foods that are easily accessible.
Since becoming a new mom to a newborn, I have loved my crockpot to make soups as you can saute the vegetables, then throw everything into the crockpot, and walk away. Making soups in a slow cooker is a blessing when you have a newborn baby or toddler with unpredictable needs that pull you away from the stove.
With this creamy vegan potato vegetable soup, you can chop, saute, blend, pop all the ingredients into a slow cooker and let the soup simmer for 1-3 hours while you attend to other duties. You won’t have to worry about burning the soup if left to cook in a slow cooker.
