For Topping
Make the Vegan Potato Soup
  1. Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Cook, uncovered,until potatoes are fork tender, about 15 minutes. Drain into a colander and set aside.
  2. Return pot to stove and coat the bottom with oil. Place over medium heat. When oil is hot, add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute more. Add 4 cups of milk and potatoes to pot. Mash potatoes lightly with a potato masher, keeping them as chunky as you like. Raise heat and bring the mixture to a simmer. Stir a few times, and add additional milk to reach the consistency you like. Cook, stirring occasionally, just until heated throughout. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Make the Tahini Cheese
  1. Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowls. Thin with as much water as needed to achieve desired consistency. Taste test and adjust seasonings to your liking.
  1. Ladle into bowls and top with toppings. Serve.
Recipe Notes

This soup thickens up quite a bit as it sits. If you have leftovers, they'll probably look more like mashed potatoes than soup. Add a bit of milk or vegetable broth to re-soupify them.
