Soup is one of the best comfort foods out there. I came up with this recipe with inspiration from a Bangla cooking show my mother watches. I decided to add in a tad bit of some classic Indian spices but you can leave them out and it will still taste great.
3-4 large potatoes (Idaho or Yukon gold)
2 cups of plain unsweetened soymilk
1 tbs of ghee (or use vegan butter)
2 cups of veggie broth (homemade is always best. for this recipe any broth that does not use tomatoes in it will be ideal)
1/2 of a medium thinly sliced white onion
1/2 tsp of salt (or more to taste)
1/2 tsp of pepper
thinly sliced scallions for garnish
1/4 tsp of coriander
1/4 tsp of cumin
1/4 tsp of chilli powder (or more if you like spicier food)
1. Boil potatoes until fully cooked. Drain and peel them.
2. While the potatoes boil take 1/2 tbs of ghee or what ever butter substitute you’re using and melt in a saucepan. Saute the thinly sliced onions until translucent.
2. Mash all the potatoes to make it easier to blend. Take 3/4 of the mashed potatoes (or all of it if you want a completely smooth texture) and put in a blender with soymilk and cooked onions.
3. Put the mixture in a pot with the rest of the mashed potatoes and place on a medium heat on the stove. Whisk in veggie broth.
4. Once all whisked together turn the heat to low and mix in salt, pepper and spices.
5. Turn the heat off and serve with scallions. Enjoy on a winter night or anytime your in a soupy mood. :)
