The secret to smooth, silky and deceivingly cream dairy-free broccoli soup is potatoes. Throw this hearty recipe in your slow cooker and get ready for a delicious bowl.
My love for potatoes runs deep. I never really understood how much of a potato gal I was until now. I’m talking simple, plain microwaved potatoes with a tad bit of sour cream. That’s it. My perfect go-to weekly meal.
Yes, I will say it again: I love potatoes! They are soooo versatile.
Potatoes are in our dairy-free alfredo sauce (yes, those perfect potatoes are in there), plus you can grill them, mash them, and don’t even get me started with that amazing potato starch. You know how much I lovvvvveeee potato starch. It was in my birthday cake last week.
My love for potatoes definitely runs deep, not just because they taste amazing, but because they are packed with potassium, along with other amazing nutrients.
We are taking the versatility of potatoes into a hearty, fall-loving soup direction today with this Dairy-Free Crockpot Broccoli Potato Soup.
