Hot and cold vegan soup recipes are included in this definitive collection of the best plant-based soups the internet has to offer. Whatever the weather, if you’re a soup-lover, there’s sure to be something here for you!
There’s nothing more versatile than soup!
A great way to get your daily serving of veggies, vegan soup recipes can be both warm and comforting in the dead of winter and cool and refreshing on a hot summer’s day.
They can be as simple as throwing all your leftover veggies in a pot with some stock or as complex as a slow-simmered aromatically-spiced vegan pho.
I’ve scoured the Interwebs to find 50 of the best vegan soup ideas for whatever you’re craving as well as the most popular vegan soup recipes from this blog.
I’ve divided the recipes below into two categories: hot soups for when you need to warm up or when you’re sick, and cold soups for you to discover that there’s more to chilled soups than just gazpacho.
If you’re a soup lover like me, there’s sure to be something here for you!
