12 Easy Vegan Soup Recipes

Vegan soups make it easy to stay hydrated and eat more veggies-- two things that are hard to do in winter months. Plus, since you can make a big pot of soup using inexpensive, (mostly) unprocessed whole foods, vegan soups can help you to save money on groceries and take out while you spend less time cooking.

I love vegan soup so much I created the 21 Day Vegan Soup Challenge. Every February I lead a group though the challenge. You can also do the challenge on your own at any time of the year. (Click here for details and registration.)

The first day of the 2016 guided group challenge is Sunday, February 7, 2016. The last day of the guided group challenge is Saturday, February 27, 2016. 

Here are recipes I featured during last year's challenge. They were selected because they all include nutrient-dense whole foods. Many also include orange root veggies, healthy fats, and protein-- three important factors in reducing cravings for unhealthy sweets. 

Want more recipes? Did you know there is an entire book of vegan soup recipes? Yep, one of my favorite veg cookbook authors, Nava Atlas, published Vegan Soups and Hearty Stews for All Seasons. This might be helpful to those of you who prefer to cook with an open book (instead of a tablet or other device).

This was one of my favorites: Coconut Curry Soup. I enjoyed it with quinoa and side of curry tempeh.
