Vegetarian Potato Soup
Updated: Mar 29
Vegetarian potato soup is creamy and rich in flavor. Tender cubes of potato soaking up the broth and garlic and onion flavor. This potato soup would go great with vegan cheddar cheese garlic biscuits, salad, fried corn, and vegan grilled cheese sandwiches.
Whenever I am cooking in the kitchen when my daughter would visit home from college she always puts me to work to fix something vegetarian. Whether it's barbacoa with jackfruit , Tomato soup non dairy heavy cream, I could go on and on. It's always something to cook in Dollbaby kitchen. I enjoy it all.
