What’s In This Potato Coconut Milk Soup?

  • Potatoes: I used yellow potatoes for this, but really any variety you prefer would be delish!  Russet’s can tend to get a little mushy in soups (not bad if you like a creamier consistency!), but a yellow or red variety will hold it shape and stay firm throughout cooking.  Up to you!
  • Coconut Milk: Use full-fat coconut milk, don’t bother with the “lite” stuff.  There is very little fat in this soup, so if you’re going to do it… do it right!
  • Carrots: for a little sweetness and bright color
  • Celery: Because every soup really benefits from the fresh earthy flavor of celery.
  • Onion: as with celery, a soup staple ingredient!  You get a lot of flavor from an onion, so add one in.
  • Mushrooms: hearty mushrooms cook down and give this soup a richness and thickness
  • Herbes de Provance: my all-time favorite spice. Its a blend of thyme, savory, marjoram, and rosemary, and is so wonderful on roasted vegetables, soups/stews, or on oven baked fries.
  • Butter: use plant-based or vegan version if you are dairy free… there are tons of great plant butters around.  Or substitute olive oil, that works well too.

How Do I Make This Potato Coconut Milk Soup?

  1. In a large pot melt the butter over low heat. Add the onion and saute for 6 to 7 minutes until the onion begins to soften.  Add the celery, carrot, mushrooms, potatoes, Herbes de Provance, and Vegetable stock.
  2. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer on low for 45 minutes until the potatoes are soft and tender.  Remove the pot from heat, and stir in the can of coconut milk.
  3. Taste and add salt and fresh ground pepper if desired.  Serve with a sprinkle of fresh thyme  or Herbes de Provance for garnish.
