Comforting dairy free cheeseburger soup is the perfect hearty meal for your family to enjoy! Delicious and so easy to make.
Sometimes winter just seems to drag on, doesn’t it? It feels like this winter has been about three years long. And then when you have a few spring-like days, only to find out that the next day is supposed to bring snow, it’s really a downer. So, what to do?
I think the best thing to do is to make a cozy soup and stay inside. Embrace the chilly weather, stay warm, and make this dairy free cheeseburger soup.
This soup is cream, cheesy, hearty, and delicious. I know some of you are skeptical of dairy free cheese, and I don’t blame you. Sometimes there is a bit of a texture issue, or the flavor is a bit strange. I recommend the Daiya medium cheddar block – it adds a great cheddar flavor to this soup, and doesn’t have an aftertaste.
If you have a favorite dairy free cheese that works for you, go ahead and use it. Or, if you aren’t dairy free, go ahead and use regular cheddar cheese.

Its ground round just hamburger? Silly question maybe but I don’t know my meat cuts to well. LOL
Yes, ground round is 80% lean, but you can get any kind of ground beef that you like. Ground turkey would work, too!
How long does it stay good for?!
I would say no more than 4 days.
This is so delicious! I have made it twice now. My family was not super excited the first time I said I was making Cheeseburger Soup. In fact, one person said it sounded horrifying. But it can tell you, it is so yummy and creamy, and my whole family loved it!!
Yay! I am so happy to hear that!
I made a triple batch for a friend and saved a bowl for my husband and myself. My husband said “Why are you giving away the good stuff?” 😆 Our five year old liked it too! (Something with veggies? That she LIKES!? Sign me up!) It was so good we scarfed up our portion in no time. I promised I’d make a large batch for our family too. Today’s the day. We don’t have any food sensitivities, so I’m going to use regular milk and flour to save some sheckles. I used my food processor to save time chopping. I have a giant stock pot so planning on a quadruple batch today, with plenty to go in the freezer for easy meals later. Thank you for an amazing recipe!!
Made this last night for dinner and had for leftovers today. Reheated beautifully for lunch!!
What’s up it’s me, I am also visiting this site daily, this website is in fact pleasant and the viewers are in fact sharing good thoughts
Pleasantly surprised by this. I substituted in sweet potato because I don’t eat white potato… I brainstormed with a friend how to get it to fall in line with the flavors and added nutritional yeast to strengthen the cheese-esque flavor and double the italian seasoning. Came out great. I really enjoy your recipes, I’ve learned how to make substitutions from some of your other recipes, and I’m able to apply them elsewhere. I cook from TPB almost every weekend when making my lunches for the week.
So glad you liked it! Thanks for letting me know!
