BY : PUBLISHED : March 1st, 2021 UPDATED: August 17th, 2021

Soups are the beginning and the end of cozy and easy meals, so it makes perfect sense to do a round of our ultimate favorite ones. There are endless reasons why adding more soups to your meal repertoire is a good idea; among them, they are very affordable and easy to make, you can add endless amounts of veggies, and you cook them in one pot. Let’s dive into these amazing vegan soup recipes!

When Life Gives You Veggies, Make Soup!

It is no surprise that eating an abundance of colorful veggies is one of the greatest things you can do for your health, so any recipes or preparations where you can include them are more than welcome. Soups is one of them, and we are so here for it. What do we love the most about them? Here are a few reasons why:

  • They can comfort you like no other dish: There’s something about eating a steaming bowl of soup at the end of a long day that really hits the right spot. It is a perfect way to unwind and relax when we need it the most.
  • You’ll only need one pot: Forget the dreaded pile of dishes; with soups, you will (almost) always have only one pot to deal with after a delicious meal.
  • Drink up: Drinking enough water is an essential part of staying healthy, but this doesn’t translate to gulping huge glasses of water mindlessly; eating water-rich foods like fruits and veggies (and sipping on soups) counts too!

Whether you like them silky smooth or chunky, there are vegan soup recipes for us all. So, which soups are some of our favorites? Let’s take a look at s few of those.
