How to make
First, saute the onions and chopped garlic in a sufficiently large pot.
Now add all remaining ingredients and let cook until the potatoes are soft. Use a knife and stab in the potatoes.
If there is no resistance, the potatoes are cooked.
Now take an immersion blender or add the sauce to your high speed blender and puree the soup.
If you want a potato soup with pieces, take out half of the soup and then puree. Then add the skimmed potato soup again.
Season the soup with salt and pepper.
Which potatoes are best for a potato soup?
For a potato soup, which is also creamy, it is better to use floury potatoes with a high starch content like Yukon Gold Potatoes or Russets.
If you would rather have a coarse potato soup with bits, use potatoes with low starch like red skinned potatoes.
How can I prepare a potato soup with pieces?
If you want the potato soup chunky, then take just as described in the tips above of the soup away. Here you can decide how much soup you want to skim off. After pureeing just add the soup again.
You can also puree the soup very roughly, while I leave the immersion blender at the lowest level.
Are potato soups vegan or vegetarian?
Often Potato Soups are made with bacon or a beef broth. Therefore, most potato soups are not vegan or even vegetarian.
Or potato soups are served with sausages. You can easily prepare your own vegan potato soup.
When you're in the restaurant, ask how it's cooked. Maybe this can then be veganized easily.
You can freeze a potato soup very well. However, you have to pay a lot of attention.
Otherwise, the consistency and taste may change. And we do not want that, right?
Freeze only creamy mashed potatoes without pieces, otherwise the potatoes will be mushy, glassy and sweet. Why does the potato get sweet? The potato converts starch into sugar.
This process requires the potato for the metabolism. However, if the potato drops below 39 F( 4 degrees Celsius), the metabolism slows down, but it will continue to produce sugar.
In the cool temperature, however, the potato does not need the sugar and is thus stored in the potato itself.
And the potato gets sweeter. The potato gets soggy because the water in the cells freezes and the membrane is destroyed.
Add milk, cream and other fillings like coconut cream, croutons later.
After thawing and heating, the greasy components in the coconut milk will flocculate and that does not look so appetizing right?
If you like the taste of frozen potatoes you have to find out on your own. Some people find that nothing changes in taste and others say the taste changes a lot. Anyway, it's best to eat the soup within 6 weeks.
Yes, potato soup can be frozen relatively well. Before you freeze the soup in a plastic box or in a freezer bag, you should let it cool completely.
How long does the vegan potato soup last?
If you store the soup in an airtight container and place it in the refrigerator, it will last for 3-4 days.
Use an immersion blender for the potato soup. You do not necessarily need a high speed blender. It's enough if you purée the soup in the pot. If you're using a high speed blender, watch out for the heat. It is best to leave off the middle cap or let the soup cool down first.
You can also add a dash of coconut milk to make the soup even creamier. Take the coconut milk out of the can.
Or take another heavy cream alternative.
If you want the soup to be coarse and not completely mashed. Take out 1-2 scoops and then puree. After pureeing, add the skimmed soup again.
Top the soup with croutons or coconut bacon. Or serve the soup with a baguette, waffles or apple pancakes.
You can also prepare the soup in a pressure cooker or instant pot. First sauté the onions and garlic and when all ingredients have been added, cook under pressure for about 10 minutes.
Then the potatoes should be soft.
