Gluten Free Dairy Free Potato Soup

Everyone has a favorite potato soup recipe, but it is hard to find a creamy potato soup recipe when you eliminate gluten and dairy.  This recipe is delicious, creamy, gluten and dairy free!  I ran across this recipe recently and thought it would be the perfect time to try out my new immersion blender.  If you do not have one, you can simply remove a small portion of the soup and use a traditional blender.

    Is there a sub for the dairy free cream cheese? I’d still like it to be a whole foods recipe and I’m just guessing that DF cream cheese is pretty processed.

      Krista you can just use your favorite organic cream cheese. If you’re still going for dairy free though you could try goat cheese or coconut butter could work as well.

    This looks AMAZING! We haven’t had potato soup in years, so I’m really excited to try this out!

    A great substitute is a product called Tofutti cream cheese or if it is lactose you worry about use Gouda.
