Baked Potato Soup

By Alexander Willow-Harvey (

Serves 2 | Prep 60 mins | Cook 10 mins |



  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp vegan margarine
  • 2 medium onions, diced
  • 3 leftover baked potatoes, chopped into small chunks
  • Sea salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp liquid smoke (optional)
  • 4-6 cups quality vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • Chopped chives and chive flowers (optional) to garnish


  1. Heat the oil and margarine in a large pan and sauté the onions until translucent.
  2. Add the baked potatoes, along with a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes or so.
  3. Add the stock, liquid smoke and nutritional yeast. Bring to the boil, then simmer for about 8-10 minutes.
  4. Turn the heat off and blend the soup with an immersion blender. Heat through, add more stock if needed to thin the soup to desired consistency, and add more seasoning as needed. Serve and garnish with chopped chives.
