Cream Cheese Potato Soup
Just about every Sunday, I spend an hour or two in the kitchen preparing Dayv's lunch for the upcoming work week. Over the course of the last two years it has changed quite a bit, starting out as a banana with peanut butter and a few cookies, to hummus with tortilla chips and baby carrots. Lately, though, he's very much been on a soup kick. Dayv prefers thick chowder-like soups with potatoes as the main component. Luckily, I'm always coming across more soups that fit this description.
This past week, I made Manifest Vegan's Cream Cheese Potato Soup. The only modification I made was to use four cups of vegetable broth rather than eight, since Dayv likes thick, hearty soups. I loved how easy it was to prepare. Also, Dayv enjoyed it, which is always a plus since he has to eat it all week.
After preparing Dayv's lunch soup every week, I divide it evenly between five microwave-safe containers. That way, they are ready to be packed every night for the next day. Dayv enjoys lunch with tortilla chips that he breaks apart and puts into his soup, like crackers. I also pack a salt shaker, which is actually one of my recycled spice jars complete with the plastic top that has the little holes in it.
