Healthier eating doesn’t mean you have to avoid your favorite comfort foods. This Crockpot Paleo Baked Potato Soup is even more delicious than the original!
I have a love/hate relationship with my slow cooker. I love using it because it makes getting dinner done so easy. But, Mathlete often complains that everything tastes the same when it is cooked in the slow cooker. One exception: this Crockpot Paleo Baked Potato Soup.
One thing about doing Whole30 in the middle of winter is that I tend to crave creamy soups. With this recipe, I can fulfill those cravings and still stay totally complaint with the eating plan. We love thiscrockpot potato soup recipe so much that we eat it all the time even when we aren’t doing Whole30.
I prefer my homemade potato soup pretty smooth so I definitely go the immersion blender route. It takes just a few minutes to create a perfectly creamy soup that actually has no cream, milk or butter in it! If you like a chunkier texture, just use a potato masher and mash the potatoes to the consistency you want.
