Vegan vegetable soup, hearty, nutritious, and made with affordable ingredients. It's healthy, tasty, so easy to make, and perfect for dinner!
This vegan vegetable soup is delicious, nutritious, and made with inexpensive ingredients. I'm a HUGE soup lover because soups are warm, so comforting, and perfect to eat after a long, cold day. Besides, this one is gluten-free!
This simple recipe can be made with any combination of fresh or frozen vegetables. The soup will taste different every time and you can use the ingredients you have on hand. It's totally customizable!
- Extra virgin olive oil: I’m Spanish, so I use extra virgin olive oil to cook most of my dishes. However, any type of oil is okay. I always use extra virgin oils when possible because they’re healthier.
- Potatoes: any type of potatoes will work.
- Vegetable stock or water: I prefer vegetable stock because it enhances the flavor of this vegan vegetable soup recipe. However, water is okay too. I do suggest you easily make your own vegetable stock at home using our recipe, but you can also use it store-bought.
- Italian seasoning or dried oregano: feel free to use other herbs to taste, such as fresh parsley, basil, thyme, or rosemary.
- Make it oil-free: you can cook the veggies with some vegetable stock or water instead of oil.
How to make vegan vegetable soup
- Heat the oil in a large pot and sauté the garlic, celery, and onion over medium-high heat until golden brown.
- Add all the remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, and simmer for 30 minutes.
- Serve your vegan vegetable soup immediately.
How to store
- Fridge: store the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 5-7 days.
- Freezer: store the leftovers in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 6 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge.
- Reheat: it can be reheated in the microwave or on the stovetop over medium heat until warmed through. Add a little water or vegetable stock if needed.
You can serve your vegan vegetable soup as a cozy and nutritious dinner along with some Instant Pot chickpeas, baked tofu, or tempeh to add more protein to this meal. Another option is to directly incorporate some white beans into your soup.
