Chunky Vegan Potato Soup

Ah, soup season. I have a love-hate relationship with it. Hate, because I’m just not a fan of autumn and winter. Sure, the holidays are fun, but not cold weather, rain, and feeling like it’s nighttime at 4 pm. Love, because I get to eat soup pretty much on the daily. It’s the best way to stay warm, right after cold showers and cuddling your significant other. But given that extensive showering is needlessly bad for the environment and I am hopelessly single, soup it is.
So, grab your bowls and spoons because this veggie-packed chunky vegan potato soup is not one that you wanna miss! Seriously, this is perhaps my favourite soup that I’ve made to this date.
Chunky vegan potato soup
Okay, let’s discuss this super flavourful potato soup. When I was taking pictures for this blog post, it was hard not to dive in and eat all of it within five minutes because it smells so good. And you bet it tastes even better.
The main ingredient is, of course, potatoes. Aka, a magical ingredient that works in so many recipes. Potato soup is a pretty standard use of them, but one that never gets boring. I also added a lot of other vegetables: carrots, onion, sweetcorn, cabbage, sweetcorn and peas. They add a lot of natural flavour and texture so that every spoonful is exciting. I flavoured the broth with tomato paste, tamari, and also some oat milk (but you can use any vegan milk of your choice). The veggies themselves release a lot of favour.
If you want to, you can blend this chunky vegan soup, but I have to admit that the chunkiness makes it special. I’ve always chosen chunky soups over creamy ones because I’m a big fan of a lot of texture in my food.
What makes this soup extra special?
- Full of flavour.
- Bursting with healthy ingredient.
- A great way to eat more vegetables.
- Easy to make.
- Ready in about 20 minutes.
- Perfect for a cosy dinner.
