Special Diet Notes & Options: Curry Bacon & Potato Soup
This recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, gluten-free, peanut-free, and soy-free.
For vegan and vegetarian, some brands of vegan “bacon” may provide a good alternative, provided that they aren’t heavy in gluten.
For tree nut-free and dairy-free potato soup, So Delicious Dairy Free also offers Coconut Milk Beverage that you can use in place of the AlmondMilk. The coconut unsweetened variety will also meld nicely with the curry base.
- 2 russet potatoes, about ⅔ lb

- In a saucepan, heat olive oil and cook onion over medium heat until tender. Stir in turkey bacon, potatoes and ginger. Sauté for 1 to 2 minutes. Add 1 cup water, increase the heat and bring to a boil. Cook until potatoes are tender. When the potatoes are tender, turn off the heat, remove the saucepan from the heat and let cool for about 10 minutes.
