This Dairy Free Potato Soup recipe is easy to make and tastes delicious without the use of milk or cream!
A simple collection of ingredients make a very flavourful soup that is easy to prepare. While most potato soups are loaded with calories, this is a lighter version of potato soup without compromising on taste. Almond milk tastes great and is perfect for replacing milk or cream in soup recipes. If you like, use ham instead of bacon to cut calories even further. The bacon in this Dairy Free Potato Soup recipe adds sensational flavor, but want to make it vegetarian? Skip the bacon and use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.
I used new red potatoes and left them unpeeled. Be sure to cut the eyes out as they can sometimes be bitter tasting. If you don't have new potatoes simply peel the potatoes. Red potatoes or Yukon Gold are the best to use in potato soup. I also diced the potatoes in bite size chunks but if you prefer dice into smaller chunks.
