Okay, there’s a reason this baked potato soup is orange. It’s because I used vegetable broth, which turned this white creamy potato deliciousness to bright orange. But fear not, it still has the same yummy potato flavor.

If you’d rather a less orange version and aren’t on a vegan diet, you can use chicken broth. Or you can always use less veggie broth and more milk/water.

You can use any milk of your choosing (soy, almond or coconut) as well as any butter and cheese you choose. I used Earth Balance coconut butter and vegan cheddar, but part-skim mozzarella also works too.

You’re also welcome to play around with toppings… for those on a vegan diet, you can replace sour cream or Greek yogurt with a splash of coconut milk and a drizzle of olive oil. Other fun toppings are shredded cheese, celery and tempeh bacon. I also love to pair this soup with a burrito bowl salad!
