Vegan Goodness: Vegan Potato Soup to Warm You Up

Boy. It sure is cold out there! Monday is going to be -2 degrees but I bet you already knew that. 
Winter, you sure got a chokehold on us this time around! The radio announced that the groundhog did NOT see his shadow and so therefore we're due for an early spring. Can I get a hallelujah? 

You know what would warm up your insides in the meantime?  Potato Soup!  Try my recipe below. It shan't disappoint.  

Vegan Potato Soup
6 potatoes- cubed
4 carrots- cubed
2 celery ribs- diced
2 C water
1/2 C canned coconut milk 
1-2 garlic cloves
1/2 red onion
1 Tbs nutritional yeast 
dash of red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste
extra virgin olive oil

Heat olive oil in a large pot. I prefer glass pots or cast iron.  Saute onion and garlic until onion is translucent. Add potatoes and carrots and cook for a few minutes. Stirring occasionally. Then add water, coconut milk and spices. Bring to a boil, simmer for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Put half of the soup in a blender. Return to pot and mix with chunky potato goodness. 

Serves 4-6 people, depending on portions! 


***Correction.  Groundhog Day is Feb 4th, so the radio lied to me!  Let's call it more of a prediction.
