Lactose Free Sour Cream Chive Potato Soup

Lactose Free Sour Cream Chive Potato Soup

I use lactose free milk and sour cream for this and many of my recipes. Because among the many things I can’t eat/drink I can’t have dairy. This never stops me from cooking and baking though.  :-)   You can make this yummy potato soup recipe with “regular” milk and sour cream too.

Before I share the Lactose Free Sour Cream and Chive Potato Soup recipe I am happy to announce the winners of the Autumn Cooking Giveaway and the Cruise into Autumn Giveaway. Winners are selected using the rafflecopter random selection process.

The winner of the pampered chef baker is Barb N  and the winner of the $75 gift card to InStyleSwimwear is Cindy G Please join me in congratulating them both. Thank you to everyone for participating and sharing the Giveaways at Katherines Corner ♥

lactose free sour cream and chive potato soup recipe

What You Need

4 lbs. Potatoes (red, Yukon, bakers, or whichever is your favorite) cleaned peeled and chopped

8 Pieces of smoky bacon (cut into small pieces)

1 Cup dairy free sour cream (I use IMO)

1/2 Cup onion (chopped)

3 ½-Cups Lactose free milk (I use Lactaid)

3 Tbsp. dry chives

Salt and pepper (to taste)


Large Pot ( big enough to boil your potatoes)


Nonstick skillet


Paper towel /paper bag lined plate

Before You Start- Bring water in a pot to boiling and begin cooking your potatoes.Cook until fork tender ( about 10-15 minutes)

Lets Make It!

In a nonstick skillet cook the bacon pieces over medium heat until crisp. Place bacon pieces on a paper lined plate and set aside. Add 2 Tbsp. of bacon grease to saucepan, add onions and saute’ until tender (about 3-5 minutes). Add lactose free milk, chives and imo to onions and stir together well. Drain potatoes in a colander and add potatoes to onion lactose free milk mixture. Cook over medium heat until well incorporated (do not boil). Using a coffee mug or handled measuring cup, remove about half of the soup from the saucepan and place in your blender. Blend until creamy, pour back into the saucepan and stir. Add salt and pepper to taste, add bacon, stir and serve hot.

Serves 4 ( or 2 very hungry people, giggle)

*Katies Tid Bits, if you prefer your soup thinner add a bit more lactose free milk slowly. If you prefer it thicker add a little bit of instant potatoes, a little at a time until you reach your preferred consistency


Is anyone you cook for dairy free?

    Hi Katherine,
    This sounds yum, if I make for hubby it will have to have full cream milk in it, but I am sure that it will still be yummy, so thank you. Will try it for supper tonight.
    I hope that you have a wonderful day.
    Love and best wishes.

    Thank you, Rafflecopter, for picking my number! I will put that Pampered Chef pot to good use! And thanks for this delicious recipe. I’m allergic to casein in dairy, so will substitute almond milk and see how that works.

    1. Katherines Corner

      Barb, please let me know how it tastes with the almond milk, I am very curious, Enjoy your new baker and congratulations again xo

    I assume it would work just as well with regular sour cream?

    1. Katherines Corner

      Absolutely my friend you can use half milk and half cream and use sour cream too Hugs!

    Hi Katherine,
    This sounds yummy! Unfortunately my son can’t have lactose free milk so I’m going to experiment with cashew cream. Thanks for the inspiration! Aloha, Lori

    1. Katherines Corner

      I’m sorry to learn of your sons allergy. But I think cashew cream sounds wonderful. Please let me know how that tastes. xo

    This sounds so good! I, unfortunately, have become lactose intolerant in the last few years. This is right up my alley! Thanks for sharing the recipe, and I teamed up with the Tumbleweed Contessa for What’d You Do This Weekend and featured this post :-) Have a great night!
