Simple Gluten Free: Simple and yummy-Easy Potato Soup.

I had planned on making baked potatoes last night, but my potatoes were in bad shape. I actually bought them 3 months ago!  One of my girls suggested potato soup which we haven’t had in a long time.

Here’s my recipe:

Easy Potato Soup (GF)

An easy and tasty recipe from The Peaceful Mom!


  • 1 large onion diced
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 32 oz. chicken stock
  • 8-10 large potatoes, diced (we do not peel ours, but you may prefer yours peeled)
  • Salt and pepper to taste (use less salt if your stock is very salty)
  • 1 Tablespoon dried parsley (you could also add garlic salt)
  • 1-2 cups milk depending on your taste
  • toppings (optional): crumbled bacon bits, diced green onion, shredded cheese


  1. Melt butter in a large stock pot. Saute onions until translucent. Add chicken stock, potatoes and spices and bring to a low boil. Turn heat to low/medium and cook for about 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are soft.
  2. Remove from the heat, add milk and use an immersion blender to blend some of the potatoes (this thickens the soup). You can also remove 1 or 2 cups of the soup and blend it in a regular blender before adding it back in.
  3. We served this with crumbled bacon pieces, shredded cheese and sour cream. Garlic toast (make with GF bread) makes a nice addition as well.

    Have you tried this with coconut milk? I can’t do dairy and was wondering if coconut would be a good substitute. Although, I just remembered there is also rice milk.

    • Kimberlee

      I think coconut milk could work. I would probably take out some of the cooked potatoes, blend them with the milk and add it back to the soup to thicken it. You might have to add some other spices if the coconut taste comes through too strongly.

    I love this soup! It is so simple and really hits the spot.

    • Kimberlee

      It is super yummy! :)

  • Emily Sadlow

    this is my first potato soup —- what kind of potatoes are best for this recipe? russet?

    • Kimberlee

      Yes, I use Russet or any hard white potato rather than red or yellow. You can try it with the others, I just haven’t. :)

  • Donna

    Is chicken stock gluten free? I had to get rid of a few cans of chicken broth because it wasn’t. Is there a difference?

    • Kimberlee

      You have to read labels, but there are some gluten free brands.

  • Jody

    Can you freeze this? I’m excited to make this tomorrow!

    • Kimberlee Stokes

      Hi Jody! I have not tried to freeze this soup, but I have heard that potatoes don’t freeze well. You might try freezing a small bit of it and see how it turns out. I would love to hear if you try it. :)
