Potato Soup with Oatmeal

Prep: 15 minutes Cook: 25 minutes


Don't skip over this recipe until you've tried it. I know it sounds rather strange, but it was one of the most requested recipes on the July 2011 Costa Rica Adventure trip. The oatmeal adds a smooth texture to the soup when blended with the potatoes.


  • 8 medium potatoes, peeled and chunked
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups non-dairy milk
  • 1/3 cup uncooked oatmeal (not instant)
  • freshly ground pepper to taste
  • sea salt (optional)


Place potatoes, vegetable broth, non-dairy milk and oatmeal in a large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 20 minutes until potatoes are tender. Transfer to a food processor or blender and process until very smooth. Add freshly ground pepper, and optional salt, if using, to taste before serving.
