Easy Potato Sausage Soup - Dairy Free

Easy Potato Sausage Soup

original SUBMITTED BY: Deirdre Dee at www.allrecipes.com

I made this dairy-free with the substitution of soy milk and dairy free margarine. I was afraid the soy taste would be overpowering, but I couldn't taste it at all! Easy, wonderful soup!

2 onions, chopped
1/2 cup dairy free margarine
4 cups diced potatoes
1 (10 ounce) package frozen diced carrots
1 pound Polish sausage, sliced (read your labels carefully if you're dairy free)
1 green bell pepper, chopped
3 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 cups plain soy milk
3/4 cup dry potato flakes

  1. Using a large saucepan, brown onion in butter.
  2. Add potatoes, carrots, green peppers, sausage, water, salt and pepper. Cook on low, for about 45 minutes or until the potatoes are creamy.
  3. Add soy milk and cook until heated through and then add instant potato flakes. If you want a creamy potato soup add a 1/2 cup potato flakes, or if you want your soup thick like stew add 1 cup of potato flakes. (Personally I like the 3/4 cup consistency.)
  4. Let soup sit for approximately 5 minutes in order to thicken and then serve.
