Cheesy Vegetarian Potato Soup Recipe

Cheesy Vegetarian Potato Soup Recipe

A basic vegetarian recipe for vegetarian potato soup with cheese, green onions and fresh chopped parsley. This is a potato soup that the whole family can eat. With all the cheese and green onions, this soup reminds me a bit of crispy stuffed potato skins. It's a low-sodium soup, since the recipe doesn't call for any salt, but check the ingredients of your vegetable broth if you're watching your salt intake. Enjoy!

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 bay leaf
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup cheese, grated
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley


In a large soup pot, sautee the onion and garlic in the olive oil for 3 to 5 minutes, until onions are soft. Add the chopped potatoes and sautee for a few more minutes.

Add vegetable broth, bay leaf and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Cover and allow to cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 to 25 minutes, or until potatoes are very soft.

Remove the bay leaf, and transfer the soup to a blender or food processor. Process until smooth.

Return the soup to the pot and add cheese. Stir over low heat until the cheese has melted. Garnish with green onions and chopped fresh parsley.

I thought this was a good soup. I did tweek it a little! I ended up using 6 potatoes and added some sauteed mushrooms as well. I also took half of the broth mixture and pureed it with some of the potatoes and added some heavy cream and sour cream! After it all simmered together and I added the cheese to melt....it was a delectable bowl of soup!
