When it’s cold and wet outside, nothing warms my soul more than a bowl of vegan soup. Soup is easy to cook, makes my house smell amazing, and takes the chill off a rainy winter day. Oh, and it makes fantastic leftovers. What’s not to love?
Whether you’ve just come inside from shoveling snow or are craving a hot meal at the end of a long workday, these vegan soups will keep you full and give you the extra warmth you need to survive these last few weeks of winter. Better yet, they’re packed with nutrient-rich veggies, grains, and legumes — all part of a balanced vegan meal plan.
