Vegan Creamy Potato and Kale Soup

A dairy-free and vegan creamy soup made thick with two secrets: blended white beans and arrowroot! This flavorful potato soup is filling, loaded with protein (thanks to the white beans!), iron, potassium and other nutrients. When you need something comforting, filling, and healthy, this soup is it.

Vegan Creamy Potato and Kale Soup

When I’m thickening sauces (like a teriyaki), I always use arrowroot powder. When it comes to thickening soups, you need a bit more than some arrowroot powder. You need something nutritious and tasty that will add to the texture and flavor. How do you do that? With beans!

Vegan Creamy Potato and Kale Soup

How to thicken soups without dairy

  • Add an arrowroot slurry: whisk together 2 tablespoons of water and 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder and stir it into your soup
  • Add a can of beans and use an immersion blender to blend it into your soup

Vegan Creamy Potato and Kale Soup

Beans are not only a strong source of protein, but they’re packed with fiber, B vitamins, folate, iron and more! Along with potatoes and kale, this soup is an immune booster and so filling and comforting. Definitely a winter staple.

If you’re not vegan, you could add some Parmesan cheese on top of this soup and use that leftover turkey in here for added protein and flavor!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 4 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 (15oz) can cannellini beans
  • 32oz vegetable broth, low sodium
  • 4 cups cubed yellow potatoes
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 cups chopped lacinato kale

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Once the oil is shimmering, add the onion, garlic, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes. Let cook until onions are tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the beans and broth and stir. Using an immersion blender, blend the soup until creamy. Add the potatoes, season with salt and pepper and bring the soup to a boil. Reduce the heat and let the soup simmer for about 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  3. Once potatoes are tender, add the kale to the pot. Simmer the kale until wilted. Top with crumbled tempeh bacon, if using.

This looks great. I potentially have all the things for it. Do you think I could sub pinto or garbanzo beans for the cannellini?

you know what keeps me up at night? 🥺 the gut-wrenching mom guilt from worrying that this time is going to fly by (it is!) and I’m going to look back and wish I had made more one on one time with each my kids when they wanted it! it’s so hard to separate my time, and I’ll admit that I’m not great at finding ways and the right moments to do it. mamas out there who have 2 or more, what do you do to get more individual time with each of your kids?

maybe I’m putting too much pressure of myself in this season of life, but I can’t help feeling like I’m failing and I’m missing out on this adorable age! #proofofmom #motherhood #thisismotherhood #toddlermom
