Units Scale
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 2 pounds of potatoes cut into 1 inch chunks (peel potatoes first if using Russet)
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. In a 3 quart pot heat the olive oil over medium heat
  2. Once hot, add in the onions and sauté for 5 minutes until soft. Be sure to stir frequently to prevent them from burning
  3. While the onions are cooking, peel the potatoes (if needed) and chop them into 1 inch chunks
  4. After the onions are soft, pour the vegetable broth into the pot and add the chunks of potatoes. Turn the heat up to high and bring to a boil. Boil for 12-14 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork tender
  5. When the potatoes are soft, turn the heat off and pour the coconut milk, salt, garlic powder, paprika, and ground black pepper into the pot
  6. Use an immersion blender and blend on high until the potato soup is smooth and creamy
  7. Put the blender away and turn the stove to medium/low to reheat the soup, then serve and enjoy


  • Cut the potatoes into equal size chunks when boiling them
  • Use a waxy potato variety if you can
  • If the potatoes have thin skin there is no need to peel them
  • By using veggie broth this recipe will also be vegan and vegetarian
  • Substitute the coconut milk with any non-dairy milk
  • Use a high-speed blender if you don't have an immersion blender
  • You can make this up to 1 day in advance
  • The potato soup tends to thicken as it cools so reheat with a splash of milk or broth if needed
