Servings5 medium bowls


  • 1 onion
  • 2 lbs. red potatoes (about 4-5 cups diced)
  • 3-4 cloves garlic
  • 3 cups sweet corn (frozen, fresh, or canned)
  • 3 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups almond milk* (plain & unsweetened)
  • 2/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • Salt/pepper to taste

Toppings (optional):

  • Fresh chives or green onions


  • Dice onion. In a large stockpot over medium-high heat, sauté onion in 3 Tbsp. broth/water for about 7-8 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, mince garlic and cut potatoes into about 3/4″ chunks.
  • Add potatoes and smoked paprika to pot. Cook 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add minced garlic and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add broth, milk, corn, and nutritional yeast. Increase heat and bring to a light boil.
  • Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  • Salt/pepper to taste, and add more nutritional yeast if desired.
  • Leave as is, or blend some for a creamier texture. (I like to blend about half with an immersion blender.)
  • Garnish with fresh chives, green onion, etc. if desired.


*Or substitute your own favorite plant milk. Soy or cashew would be great as well. Just be sure it's plain & unsweetened.
