I had planned to blog about my healthier version of spinach artichoke dip today, but then I tasted a bowl of heaven last night and knew…this recipe could not wait!
Best part of this bowl of heaven? It cooked in a crock pot on low for 10 hours! Seriously?! I love crock pot meals!
I was surprised by the depth of flavor in this soup. When I added everything to the pot that morning, I thought “Fingers crossed”, and put the lid on it. Man oh man, I had no idea how delicious this soup would be!
Lick the bowl good!
Gluten Free Crockpot Potato Soup
5lbs Russet Potatoes, washed but NOT peeled. Diced into 1/2 inch(ish) cubes
1 large yellow onion, diced
10 cloves of garlic, peeled and left whole
8 cups gluten free chicken stock (be sure gluten free! I used Pacific)
2 bars (16 oz) cream cheese (I used one fat free and one low fat bar)
Toppings: green onion, cooked bacon, cheddar cheese
Seasoning Salt or Steak Seasoning (I used Steak Seasoning)
You’re going to need a big crock pot for this recipe, it makes a TON of soup. If you don’t have a big one – half the recipe!
Into the crockpot: diced potatoes, onion, garlic, stock, and 1/2 tbsp. of your chosen seasoning. Stir to combine. Cook on low for 10 hours or high for 6 hours.
Once it’s cooked all day, you’re ready for the last steps. Cube your cream cheese into 2 inch cubes, and stir in to the crock pot. Using an immersion blender, carefully blend the soup in the crock pot.
Don’t have an immersion blender? Don’t add the cream cheese into the crockpot, put in your blender with 1/3 of your soup and the garlic - blend. Then reincorporate back into the crockpot. This will leave you with a chunkier soup…so I recommend getting an immersion blender!
Toppings! I suggest cooked bacon, green onion, and cheddar cheese. Also yummy: sautéed mushroom.
I can’t stress how much soup this makes! I had one bowl, Parrish had two and we have EIGHT containers of leftovers!
Anyone have any knowledge about freezing? Could I freeze this soup? Is there a particular container that would do better?
I also can’t stress how DELICIOUS this soup is!!
Try it, Love it, Lick the bowl.
