Broccoli Potato Soup

Soup has a way of making you feel better. It doesn’t matter what kind of soup it is, but homemade is the best.

I never loved soup until we transitioned to a plant-based diet. After that, I couldn’t get enough soup. Broccoli Potato Soup is just one of my favorites.

Broccoli Potato Soup is dairy-free and completely healthy. The perfect fuel for your day.

I think one of the reasons was that although tasty, a lot of soups contained meat and dairy and were not refreshing. They were greasy, heavy or gave me a stomach ache. This never happens with plant-based soups.

Broccoli Potato Soup
Recipe type: Soup
  • 1½ to 2 pounds potatoes + enough water to cover potatoes
  • ½ a onion, diced
  • 1 stick celery, sliced
  • 1 carrot, sliced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 crown of broccoli, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • ¼ cup plant milk
  1. Scrub and chop potatoes. Place them in a pan of water and bring to a boil. You can also use vegetable broth for a heartier flavor.
  2. Add diced onion, carrot and the bay leaf (you will remove the bay leaf before serving).
  3. Once carrots and potatoes are almost tender add broccoli and spices.
  4. Simmer for 5-10 minutes.
  5. The soup is ready to eat as is. For a more savory soup add ¼ cup of plant milk and 1 Tbsp of nutritional yeast.

Another great thing about this soup is that it is very inexpensive to make. We almost always have the ingredients on hand so it’s a no brainer.

  1. I’m so excited!!! Broccoli and potato soup and it’s healthy! Thank you for this recipe!

  2. Holly…what is plant milk? Never heard of it.

  3. My apologies if this is printed somewhere and I just didn’t see it, but I’m wondering how many servings this makes?

  4. Julie Nutting says:

    can you use vegetable stock instead

  5. Wendy Mikus says:

    Made it last week…tweaked it quite a bit. Added diced bell peppers, peas, and diced avocado (avocado at the moment of serving, not during cooking time). It turned out so good!

  6. Don’t see where the celery comes in.
