How to Make Creamy Vegan Baked Potato Soup:
The first thing you’ll want to do when making this soup is gather all of your ingredients. There’s nothing worse than getting halfway through a recipe only to realize that you don’t have everything you need. As with any recipe, quality matters! I got all of the ingredients I needed for this recipe from my local Harris Teeter. They always have the best produce and the quality ingredients I’m looking for. Once all of your ingredients are gathered, preheat your oven to 400°.
It’s most efficient to start with the roasted garlic so while it’s cooking you can use that time to prep your other ingredients. In order to make roasted garlic you’ll want to start by peeling the outer layer of skin around the bulb.
Once the skin is peeled, cut off the top portion of the garlic bulb so that the individual inner garlic bulbs are exposed. Place the garlic face up in the center of a piece of foil, then drizzle with olive oil (about one teaspoon), then fold the foil over the garlic, place it inside of an oven safe dish, and transfer to the oven and bake for 30 to 40 minutes.
While the garlic is roasting, now would be a great time to go ahead and prep your remaining ingredients by peeling and cubing the russet potatoes, measuring out the Harris Teeter Unsweetened Almond Milk, vegan chicken broth (or vegetable broth), then measuring out all of the seasonings and flour.
Once your roasted garlic is finished cooking, remove it from the oven and open the foil to release the heat. After the garlic has had time to cool, squeeze the roasted garlic out of the skin and into a small dish. Mash it with the back of a spoon or fork until it looks like a paste.
In a large pot add in your vegan butter and allow it to melt. Once melted add in the mashed garlic and stir to combine. Gradually add in the all-purpose flour and use a whisk to combine with the roasted garlic and vegan butter.
At this point you’re ready to add in the milk and vegan chicken broth. Continue whisking until you’ve developed a smooth texture. Carefully add in the diced potatoes and all seasonings. Stir the ingredients together until the seasonings have been incorporated into the mixture.
Increase the temperature to a medium high setting and cover with a lid to allow the mixture to come to a boil. Once your creamy vegan baked potato soup has reached a boil, reduce the heat to a medium low temperature and allow the soup to continue cooking for about 20 to 25 minutes. Be sure to stir occasionally.
While the Vegan Baked Potato Soup is cooking you can use this time to prep any toppings you would like to use for your creamy vegan baked potato soup. I kept it pretty simple by using Simple Truth Organic Chives, vegan bacon and shredded vegan cheddar cheese. You can add anything you like. This recipe was made to be customized!
Once your Vegan Baked Potato Soup has finished cooking, you can go ahead and serve it along with your favorite baked potato toppings. It’s important to note that this recipe will continue to thicken as it cools, so waiting to dig in might not be such a bad thing, however I completely understand if you get the urge to enjoy it immediately!
