*If making loaded baked dairy free potato soup, in a large dutch oven (we use an 8 qt), cook vegan bacon according to instructions. Remove to drain and then crumble. Proceed with directions as follows.
In the same pot, over medium heat, add in the celery, onion, carrot, and garlic. Cook for 4 minutes or until onion is translucent.
Turn heat down to low. Pour in potatoes, milk and vegetable broth slowly. Stir together and then add salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 10 minutes.
Using a masher, mash down the potatoes until desired consistency. *You could also use an immersion blender or high powdered blender like Vitamix if you would like a very smooth soup, but we like small chunks of potatoes in ours.
Continue to cook for 10-15 minutes or until potatoes are tender, stirring often so the potatoes don't burn on the bottom.
If doing a loaded potato soup, add in all the bacon and cheese and stir together until melted.
Remove from heat. If your soup is too thick , add up to an additional 1 cup of milk, 1 tbsp at a time until desired consistency is reached. Adjust salt and pepper if needed.
Add any additional toppings like more crumbled vegan bacon, cheese or sour cream on top. Serve
