The Best Healthy Potato Cheese Soup Recipe

Who doesn't love a healthy potato cheese soup recipe? I certainly do, and this one fits the bill. I love potatoes. I'm with Dolly Parton when she said, "I never met a spud I didn't like."
Yup, that is absolutely true for me, too.
Whether a spud comes in the form of Chick-fil-A fries, a baked potato with all the fixins, or mashed and served with gravy, they are a-okay👌🏼 in my book. Oh! And there are plenty that do end up in my books.
I especially love that this puréed soup is a healthy version of the normally much higher fat and calorie potato cheese soup. No cream needed in this!
I make this potato-cheese soup recipe throughout the fall and winter. It pairs perfectly with sausage bread. Give it a try! Both of these recipes will end up in one of my books at some point! And I bet the soup will become a staple in your household, too.


  • 4-5 Russet potatoes peeled and chunked
  • 2 carrots sliced
  • 3-4 celery stalks sliced
  • 1 onion diced
  • 4 cups broth chicken or vegetable
  • 1 tsp salt or to taste
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 1/2-2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Dried or fresh dill weed


  • Heat oil in large pot. Saute onion, carrots, and celery. Add potatoes, broth, and salt. Cover and simmer until potatoes are soft, approximately 40 minutes.
  • Using an emulsion blender, puree contents in soup pot. Add shredded cheese and dill weed. Still until cheese is incorporated into soup.
