Need Potato Soup Recipe

I have cream to use up, so I'd like to make a good slow cooker potato soup that uses cream and no meat, as I will be serving this to my vegetarian daughter. Anybody have a recipe?

I was just about to post my recipe when I saw "no meat" sorry! Mine has bacon in it. Good luck!

My family ♥'s this Recipe!!!!

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

3 lbs. Red Potatoes
1/4 cup Margarine Melted
1/4 cup Flour
8 cups half and half
1 (16 oz) block Velveeta cheese, melted
White Pepper (to taste)
Garlic Powder (to taste)
1 tsp. Hot Pepper Sauce
1 cup cheddar cheese (shredded)
1/2 cup fresh chives, chopped (optional)
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped (optional)

Dice unpeeled red potatoes into 1/2 inch cubes. Place in a large dutch oven, cover with water and bring to a boil. Let boil for 10 minutes or until 3/4 cooked.

In a separate large Dutch oven, combine melted margarine and flour, mixing until smooth. Place over low heat and gradually add half and half, stirring constantly. Continue to stir until smooth and liquid begins to thicken.

Add melted Velveeta. Stir well.

Drain potatoes and add to cream mixture. Stir in pepper, garlic powder and hot pepper sauce. Cover and cook over low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally

Place soup into individual serving bowls and top with shredded cheese, chives and parsley.

I don't have a recipe that uses cream and potato. I do have a wonderful, vegan recipe for leek and potato soup: Easy leek and potato soup

Here's what I went with, minus the bacon bits:

Recipe: Crockpot Potato Soup

Labels: Slow Cooker; Soups & Stews; Vegetarian

6 baking potatoes, peeled and diced
1 C chopped onion
2 carrots, peeled and diced
2 ribs celery, sliced
4 C chicken broth
1/2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 C all purpose flour
1 1/4 C cream
Bacon bits, chopped green onions, shredded cheese

Spray the crock with nonstick spray. In the crock, put everything up through the salt and pepper. Cover and cook on high 3 hours til vegetables are tender.
Whisk together flour and cream and add to the pot. Cover and cook 30 min longer til thickened. Serve with desired toppings.

This is mine. You shall omit of the ham.

There are very nice suggestions of this here!

Potato, Ham and Cheese Soup
The recipe of my mother is different but is much as same.

2 cans Campbell cream of potato soup
1 and 1/2 soup cans of milk
1 package diced or cubed ham
1 bag shredded sharp cheddar cheese 2 cup package
Garlic and cheddar crouton

Fix soup and milk to instruction on the can and heat until it boiling a little. Wisk to make creamy.
Add ham and cheese and heat and wisk many times to when cheese melted all over.

Stand it off burners for 5 minutes before serving.

Serve in bowls with 5-6 croutons on top.

Make six servings. Could add a lettuce salad by it.

With love,

You can just omit the ham in this one:

No bacon, no soup.

Cut your potatoes, about 2-3 depending on size into 1/2" cubes, if you like/have leeks then slice one thinly and saute in a little butter (or marg if you prefer) Add potatoes and simmer in 1pt water or vegetable stock until potatoes are soft. About 10mins is usual so no need for slow cooker really. Season to taste with S&P ( I use white pepper for this but hey, whatever you like) and stir in about 1/4pt cream. I am being flexable on the amounts because I don't know how many you are cooking for etc. This would make 2 decent servings
