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!

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

THREE BEST WAYS TO COOK ZUCCHINI NOODLES 🍝 ⁣

we're a month into summer and the zucchinis are LARGE. 👏🏼 they grow like weeds this time of year and there's only so much zucchini bread, soup, and fritters you can make - time to spiralize them! if you're new to spiralizing and not sure the best way to approach cooking spiralized zucchini, here are my top 3 ways to cook zoodles 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⁣

1️⃣ SAUTÉ -  this is my favorite way to enjoy zoodles. toss them over medium-high heat until al dente (with or without cooking oil.) the moment you notice them getting soggy, remove them from heat, drain into a colander, and pat dry. I recommend pouring a sauce on top instead of tossing with a sauce, to avoid extra wateriness. I LOVE a bolognese over zoodles.⁣

2️⃣ SIMMER - zucchini noodles don't get soggy in soups, they cook evenly and they are an easy way to add veggies into soups. just add them to the end of the cooking process (3 minutes is all you need to simmer until al dente.) think chicken "zoodle" soups and "zoodle" ramens! ⁣

3️⃣ RAW - you can eat zucchini raw! in the summertime, there's nothing better than a cold zoodle salad, and I love simple pesto zucchini noodles or you can try an Asian-inspired Thai dressing like a peanut sauce.⁣

do these veggies make my belly look big? 😛🤰🏻 🧅🥒🍅 be honest! #29weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #29weekspregnant ...

I'll admit, it's been a minute since I posted a spiralized zucchini meal on here, so I'm throwing it back (and bringing it back!) with this MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN with SPIRALIZED VEGETABLES 🍅, originally made for the blog by my friend @skinnytaste! 🙏🏼⁣

I love the simplicity of this zoodle dish, it's one of those "what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight?!" 🤔 kind of meals. you can bulk this up with some grains or some grilled potatoes, too!⁣

search the blog for the recipe! 🖥️⁣
