This is a super satisfying recipe after a long day, and it’s super easy to prepare! Simply add everything to your slow cooker, and when it’s done, blend it and add toppings!
This soup is gluten free and paleo with dairy free and Whole30 options. For a gluten free versions, simply make it as is. However, if you need to omit the dairy for dietary needs or if you’re on a Whole30, just omit the cheese and sour cream. Instead, mix in nutritional yeast when you serve it, to taste, for a cheesy flavor! You could also do a dairy free sour cream!

Prefer to make this even quicker? Put the broth, potatoes, onions, and salt in the instant pot. Using the soup setting, cook for 3 minutes. When done, blend and add toppings as normal.
Do you NEED organic veggies?
If you’re doing paleo or Whole30, you don’t need to also buy organic! It’s great if you can, but not necessary to be compliant. When shopping, I rely on the dirty dozen and the clean fifteen lists. Not sure what those are? Check out this blog post I wrote on it. Potatoes frequently make the list for the dirtiest produce, sadly. However, because the conventional versions are so cheap and I’m on a budget, I buy them conventional and be sure to peel them! When I do buy organic potatoes, I don’t bother to peel them. So on your journey to clean eating, buy what you can and don’t worry about the rest!
