Plant-based “Cheesy” Potato Soup
Cold weather calls for some tasty warm soup. Even here in Florida, it has gotten down to our “winter” temperatures (60 degrees!). Whether it’s cold where you live or not, you need this soup to warm you up and this Plant-Based “Cheesy” Potato soup will do the job.
This soup is delicious with ingredients like potatoes, onions, and Loca Foods Potato Queso. In a stock pot, add the onions, potatoes, and vegetable broth and let it simmer for 20 minutes. Then add the oat milk and queso and let simmer for about 5 minutes.
Once the soup is blended you can add the garnishes. I highly recommend the coconut “bacon” and jalapenos for extra spice. This soup serves 6 people and would go great with some crusty gluten-free bread as a side.
