Wheat & gluten free, egg free, nut free & milk free option

Made with humble ingredients, but ultra-nourishing and flavourful, this creamy potato soup is the food equivalent of a big, warm hug. The potato’s fibre, potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin B6 content, coupled with its lack of cholesterol, can benefit human health.
