IA bowl of freshly made creamy potato soup garnished with mintngredients

  • 3 cups of vegetable broth
  • 1 cup of water

  • 1 small yellow squash (chopped, about 1 cup)
  • 1 celery stalk (chopped)
  • 1 banana pepper (seeds removed, chopped)
  • ¼ cup sweet onion (thinly chopped)
  • 2 Tbsp. vegan butter
  • 2 Tbsp. minced fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp. Pink Himalayan salt
  • ½ tsp. fresh ground black pepper

Directions:

  1. Peel, rinse, and chop potatoes. Place potatoes in a large pot. Add enough cold water to cover the potatoes by 2 inches. Boil on high for 30-40 minutes. Pierce potatoes with fork to check for doneness.
  2. Wash, peel, and chop squash, celery, banana pepper, and onion.
  3. Measure and prepare herbs, seasonings and all other ingredients.
  4. When potatoes are almost done, use a large sauté pan over medium heat to sauté onions, celery, and banana pepper in butter. Sauté for 5-7 minutes, or until veggies are translucent.
  5. Once potatoes are cooked, drain the water and put pot back on low-medium heat. Add the sautéed onions, celery, and banana peppers to the pot. Add all seasonings, vegetable broth, and water. Simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  6. Garnish with fresh chopped thyme. Serve and enjoy.
