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.

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)
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?
