Vegan No FODMAP Root Vegetable Soup
We know when you saw the title you thought, “What is this Vegan No FODMAP Root Vegetable Soup”?
We Love No FODMAP Foods!
We hope by now you know that there are foods that contain NO FODMAPs – and carrots, parsnips and potatoes all qualify. In this recipe they come together for a silky smooth puréed soup that not only contains no FODMAPs, it is also vegan!
Study the Monash app and learn what fruits and vegetables contain no FODMAPs. It is the fine print within each entry, so it pays to read each entry fully and carefully.
Let’s Talk Potatoes
I like Yukon Gold potatoes for this soup. They are a little waxy, a little starchy and provide a perfect balance. Sometimes they are just labeled as “gold” potatoes.
If you cannot find those, use floury baking potatoes.
Choose Your Alt Milk
I love unsweetened almond milk and in my supermarkets it is easy to find brands with ingredient lists that work well with my digestion.
And being unsweetened, I can use it in sweet as well as savory recipes, which makes it versatile. You can check it our in our Chocolate Almond Milk Pudding as well as our Vegan Pot Pie, Cucumber Gazpacho and our dairy-free Pumpkin Muffins!
If you would like to use a different alt milk, you can, but keep in mind FODMAP loads as well as texture. Some alt milks are creamier and thicker in texture than others, so the ultimate texture of the soup might vary.
Also keep in mind the FODMAP content of any substitutions and make any changes to serving sizes if necessary. You can assess this by studying the Monash app (it will become your best friend) and also fully acquainting yourself with FODMAP Stacking.

- Garnish – fresh parsley, sage, thyme or nothing at all!
Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over low-medium heat and add the scallions. Sauté until softened then add carrots, parsnips, potatoes and broth. The broth should cover the vegetables. If it does not, add more (if you have ior top off with water. Cover and bring to a simmer and cook for about 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender when pierced with a knife.
If you have an immersion blender, purée the soup right in the pot. If not, transfer the soup to a blender in batches and blend until smooth. Take care as the soup is hot; follow your blender manufacturer’s instructions.
Add the almond milk and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning, which will largely depend on the flavor of the broth that you began with. Heat to desired temperature and serve. You can garnish with fresh herbs if you like, but it is not necessary. The pure, sweet, earthy flavor of the root vegetables is so fabulous unadorned, that the garnish is truly an extra. Our Vegan No FODMAP Root Vegetable Soup can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
Dédé’s Quick Recipe Tips Video
- I LOVE using my immersion blender for this soup, right in the pot. Less clean-up and it does a great job. If you have to transfer the soup to a blender, please do take care. Follow your manufacturer’s instructions for puréeing hot ingredients. You might have to “burp” the top to prevent an explosive overflow.
