Potato Dill Soup

Isn’t this a beautiful bunch of dill?

I bought it and knew I wanted to make a soup with it. Specifically a potato and dill soup. This is probably the simplest soup recipe ever. The potatoes cook up and add a nice creaminess to the soup. You don’t actually need the almond milk at the end but it’s kind of nice.

You can blend it up super smooth in your high-powered blender. Or, if you like some texture to your soup – like I do – you can use an immersion/stick blender and just whizz it up right in the pot leaving some larger chunks of potato.

This is the perfect spring rainy-day soup.

      It’s such a warm and comforting soup. It really made me feel better after a few really rainy and exhausting days. I am growing some fresh dill in my garden this year (if I ever get my garden done). It’s one of my favorite herbs. I hope you like the soup. :)

    I LOVE potato dill soup!!! It is one of Czech traditional soups and we make it in a similar way. We leave out the garlic and celery and cook the potatoes diced for texture. We add some lemon juice or vinegar at the end to taste. I will try your version soon :-)

      Hi Elisabeth, thanks for sharing! I didn’t even know it was a Czech traditional soup. I love the idea of adding lemon juice at the end. Mmm. I’m going to have to try your version soon too. :)

    This soup is amazing! I love it so much!! Since becoming gluten-free on top of being vegan, it’s been hard to find really good recipes but your website is a taste-bud saver :)

    Thanks!
