Vegan Roasted Potato Sauerkraut Soup

August 11, 2021
Potatoes and sauerkraut are a classic combination that can be prepared a variety of different ways. There are a bunch of popular, traditional recipes out there that inspired me to make this soup. I used the flavors from a German potato salad dish as an influence and turned it into a creamy, tangy soup instead.

I used buttery yukon gold potatoes because they create the perfect balance to offset the pungent sauerkraut and yogurt. Im sure you can use whatever potatoes you have on hand and still get similar results. I roasted my potatoes before adding them to the soup to give them a more robust taste. I also added a couple carrots to sweeten and round out the flavors a bit. You can add more carrots or omit them all together, depending on your preference.
