Whole30 Loaded Baked Potato Soup

If you’ve somehow made it this far in life without making Loaded Baked Potato Soup, this recipe is just for you! This creamy and flavorful cozy recipe boasts all the classic loaded baked potato ingredients you know and love. Better yet, it takes just 10 minutes to prep!

This dish starts with Whole30-compatible bacon, diced yellow onion, minced garlic, sea salt, black pepper, and dried red pepper flakes for flavor. Next, chopped baby gold potatoes and cauliflower florets provide a tasty and satisfying base. Instead of dairy products, we use almond and coconut milk to create a creamy and rich texture that’s just as satisfying.

This Whole30 soup is easy to make and yields enough for four hearty servings. Simply crisp up the bacon, sauté the garlic and onions, add the rest of the ingredients and simmer until the vegetables are soft. Then you’ll blend a portion of the soup until smooth and stir it back into the pot for a thick and creamy consistency. Serve the soup garnished with optional chopped bacon, scallion, cilantro, and black pepper, and enjoy! You can store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
