We simply love potato soup, but most canned potato soups or restaurant soups are laden with gluten. We’ve adapted a great recipe to bring you gluten free potato soup!
We prepped this soup and stuck it in our crockpot for 10 hours. Easy peasy and only one pot to wash!
We love crockpot meals for their ease on busy weeknights, or on cold rainy weekends.
This soup is also incredibly filling. Pair it with a simple salad and call it a meal!
Gluten Free Potato Soup in the Crockpot
Gluten Free Potato Soup adapted from Mama Loves Food
- 5lbs Russet Potatoes, washed. Do not peel and dice into 1/2 inch cubes
- 1 large yellow onion, diced
- 10 cloves of garlic, peeled and left whole
- 8 cups gluten free chicken stock (we like Pacific for gluten free – be sure to check the ingredients list!)
- 16 oz cream cheese
- Toppings: green onion, cooked bacon, cheddar cheese, sour cream, chives
- Seasoning Salt or Steak Seasoning
This will make a lot of soup. If your crockpot isn’t big enough, or you’re cooking for one or two, half the recipe.
Place into the bowl of the crockpot the diced potatoes, onion, garlic, stock, and 1/2 tbsp of seasoning. Stir to combine. Set crockpot to low and cook for 10 hours or cook on high for 6 hours.
After the soup has finished cooking, it’s time for the next steps. Cut the cream cheese into 2 inch cubes, and stir in to the soup. Gently blend the soup using an immersion blender until smooth (or slightly chunk if you prefer).
If you don’t have an immersion blender, instead place the cream cheese into your blender with 1/3 of your soup and the garlic and blend. Then mix the blended mixture back into the crockpot. This leads to a chunkier soup, so an immersion blender is highly recommended.
Ladle the soup into bowls and top with your toppings of choice. This soup is so versatile, so everyone can customize their soup to their liking.
This is an absolutely delicious soup that will have you licking the bowl and going back for seconds!
Can You Freeze Gluten Free Potato Soup?
Yes, you can freeze potato soup. Just make sure that it is fully cooled before freezing. We recommend dividing the soup into individual portions before freezing so that it is easy to reheat. Potato soup will last in the freezer for 2-3 months.
What Kind of Container Should You Freeze Soup In?
We recommend using a freezer-safe container like a glass jar or plastic container. If you are using a plastic container, make sure that it is BPA free.
One handy trick for freezing soup in individual portions is to pour soup into a silicone muffin tin. Place on a tray and place in the freezer. Once solid, pop the individual soups out and store in a gallon ziploc bag. This allows you to reheat however much soup you’re going to eat at a time!
Reheating Gluten Free Potato Soup
To reheat, simply place the desired amount of soup into a pot on the stove over medium heat. Heat until warmed through, stirring occasionally. You may need to add a splash of broth, water, or milk if the soup is too thick. Add your favorite toppings.
Soup is one of our favorite comfort foods. It’s hearty, warming, and so easy to make! This gluten free potato soup is no exception. Packed full of flavor, this soup is sure to become a family favorite! We hope you’ll try our version. Bon Appetit!
