Vegan Creamy Potato-Garlic Soup Recipe

Slow Cooker – Crock Pot Recipe


Vegan Creamy Potato-Garlic Soup is a satisfying meal.   You do not have to be a vegan to enjoy this soup as it is absolutely delicious!  My family loves potato soup so I created this vegan version for my granddaughter, Tabitha, who is vegan.  It was fun taking on the challenge to make something that Tabitha could eat and the rest of the family would also love.  I also enjoyed spending time cooking it with her.  Tabitha added the final touch of the herbs and spices to the soup to make it just right.
