I bought myself a slow cooker over the holidays, and tried it for the first time yesterday. I decided to make a simple creamy potato soup
-six white potatoes, chopped (I did not peel, I just used thin skin potatoes)
-One sautéed shallot
-6 cups of vegetable broth
-teaspoon of minced garlic
-2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
I popped everything but the nutritional yeast in the slow cooker on high for six hours.
When I got home I mashed lightly with a potato masher, then put about half of it in the blender with the nutritional yeast. Mixed it altogether and got a mostly creamy slightly chunky potato soup! It required salt but I like to add that after, because my husband is limiting it. For non-vegans, I’m sure this will taste great with some cheese, or bacon! It was, the nutritional yeast gave it a bit of cheesy flavor, it was yummy and satisfying. I was going to toss a handful of cashews into the blender to make it a bit creamier, but realized too late that we are out of them. It was OK, plenty creamy!
