A friend recently asked if I could develop a creamy soup, but make it lactose free. I thought it was an interesting challenge, so off to the grocery I went to pick up some ingredients that were lactose free. I should also mention this is the inaugural dish that I’ve made in my new kitchen! 🙂 I’m quite happy that this recipe turned out, so let’s get to it:
- 1 Yellow Potato (grated)
- 1 tsbp Olive Oil
- 1 tsbp Dehydrated Parsley
- 1 tbsp Fleischmann’s Lactose Free Margarine (can be found at Sobey’s)
- 2 cups plain Soy Milk (make sure you don’t get vanilla!!)
- 1/2 cup Corn Niblets
- 1/2 cup Mushrooms
- 2 tsp Dehydrated Onions
- 1/2 cup warmed soy milk – stir in 1/2 tsp corn starch til completely smooth – add to soup
- 1 potato cubed (you can microwave them for 4 minutes before adding to the soup to soften them up & shorten cooking time)
- 1/4 tsp paprika
The soup is pretty simple to make, combine all ingredients and stir over a medium heat for approx. 30 mins. Just make sure to add your cubed potatoes last. Feel free to add more/less spices to suit your taste!
I hope this recipe can fill the craving for something creamy for those who have a lactose free diet! If anyone else has any other dietary restrictions and are looking for a new recipe, feel free to leave a comment below and we’ll see if we can muster something up!
Use Fairlife – it is a the best loctuse free milk!
Is this gluten free also?I’m thinking yes?!
It definitely is!
Can this be done with Almond milk?
Yes i’m sure Almond milk would work just fine, it will just change the flavour of the soup a bit.
This is great! Well thought out, do you have other posts too?
Thanks! Not for other lactose recipes, but if you have a recipe in mind that you’d like “translated” into lactose free, please let us know because we’re always up for the challenge!
Here’s another seriously delicious soup, that is incredibly creamy yet doesn’t require any dairy. Adapted from Food & Wine.
