Where did I get this recipe from?

This creamy potato soup recipe is one of the recipes that I have eaten all my life. I have been modifying it over the years to make it easier or use what I have in the refrigerator, but the base is always the same.

Growing up, I remember my mother, aunts, and grandmother talking about flavors, ingredients, and recipes. They passed the recipes along as they talked about a million other things, with no exact ingredients and quantities.

I even remember some afternoons they took cookbooks or their recipe notebooks to their afternoon coffee to swap recipes. The funny thing is that when I am cooking for my family, I cook like that, eyeballing everything.

INGREDIENTS TO MAKE POTATO SOUP

  • Onion. Sliced white or yellow onion, leeks or shallots. Anything works here.
  • Oil. Use oilive oil or other vetable oil that you like. You could substitute for butter (I use vegan butter).
  • Potatoes
  • Cilantro. Leaves and stems, just cut the roots.
  • Vegetable broth or water
  • Salt and pepper

HOW TO MAKE CREAMY AND DELICIOUS POTATO SOUP?

  1. In a pot, brown the onion in the oil for 3-5 minutes until it is translucent.
  2. Chop the potatoes into big chunks and add them to the pot. Cover the potoates with the liquid of your choice, season and leave over medium high heat fully cooked. Season and add the cilantro and blend until creamy.
  3. Check the seasoning and adjust with salt and pepper if necessary.
  4. Finish with roasted peanuts or chopped almonds and one or two fresh cilantro leaves.
How to finish the soup?

When it comes to serving this creamy, vegan and delicious potato soup, finish it with sliced and toasted almonds.

If you don't have almonds,add roasted peanuts  or try with any other nut or seed.

tips, tricks to make the best creamy vegan potaot cilantro soup

  • What do I do if it is too thick? Potato soup is usually thick, add the amount of liquid you need until you have a delicious creamy soup. But it is always best to add than to remove.
  • Salt the water where you cook your potaotes. When you put the potatoes to cook, add salt to the water and if you want you could also add a bay leaf or marjoram. Just don’t forget to remove before blending it.
  • What is the best way to blend a soup? It is better to start the blender at a slow speed and then increase it little by little. This way the consistency of this soup or any other soup gets creamier, but be careful not to over blend because the potato tends to become goey.
  • Can you substitute the cilantro? Yes. If you don’t have cilantro, you can add spinach or arugula or any other green leaf you have at home. It will be delicious and whenever we add some vegetables or greens to our food, we increase its nutritional value. Another idea is to add celery instead of the cilantro. Add one or two chopped celry stalks when you cook the potatoes and them blend.
  • What is the best potato to make soup? I love the Russet potatoes and the Yukon potato too. I think they will deliver the creamiest vegan potato soup, but use the one you have at home. Organic or conventional? I like to buy organic potatoes, I think it is always better. Any kind, but organic. If you use conventional peel them before cooking.
