Made with hearty potatoes and nutritious broccoli, this dairy-free, Vegan Broccoli Potato Soup is perfect for anytime of the year!
I'm coming at you today with a super simple soup recipe.
Vegan Broccoli Potoat Soup to be precise!
This broccoli potato soup recipe was inspired by an amazing soup that Brett and I shared during our time in Switzerland, which you can read all about here!
There are so many reasons I love this soup recipe. It requires less than 10 ingredients. It's full of vegetables. It's hearty and satiating thanks to starchy potatoes. AND it's creamy, despite being dairy-free!

Ingredients You'll Need for Vegan Broccoli Potato Soup
This soup is chock full of plant-based nutrition thanks to cruciferous vegetables and satiating potatoes. Below I'll list out all of the ingredients you'll need to make this soup. There are less than 10 ingredients total!
- Red onion (can sub for white/yellow onion)
- White potatoes
- Vegetable broth (or water)
- Black pepper
While this soup contains a lot of produce, all the vegetables used in this soup can last quite a while when stored properly, so you may already have some of these items on hand.
How to Make Dairy Free Broccoli Soup
Most broccoli soups contain dairy in the form of either milk, creamy or cheese. To make broccoli soup that's vegan, you can use a number of different ingredients to replace the dairy.
Non-dairy milk can easily replace dairy milk. Simple cashew cream (blending cashews and water) is a great substitution for heavy cream. Or, like in this recipe, potatoes can mimic dairy in a soup due to their creamy, starchy nature.
