3 cosy and nutritious vegan soup recipes

pumpkin soup
Nothing is more warming and comforting than a bowl of hot soup. Here we share 3 of our favourite vegan soup recipes that are cosy and nutritious.
One of the very best things about the colder weather is that soup is squarely back on the menu. Healthy, cheap, and easily stored to heat up later, vegan soup makes a perfect low effort, low-calorie, and low fat lunch or dinner. 
If you are thinking of “going vegan” entirely, this is a brilliant place to start.
Here are three cosy, nutritious and easy vegan soup recipes to get even the staunchest meat eater enthused!

Vegan lentil soup

Vegan
Gluten Free
Easy
Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 50 mins
Total time: 1 hr 5 mins

Ingredients

  • Two litres of water
  • Vegetable stock
  • 200g of red lentils
  • 2 large leeks, sliced finely
  • A large red onion, sliced finely
  • 8 carrots (chopped up small)
  • Four tablespoons of vegan butter, coconut oil, or olive oil
  • A little chopped coriander or parsley to sprinkle on top, if desired.

Method

1

Slice the red onion and leeks and fry these in your vegan butter or olive oil. Give it about ten minutes, stirring occasionally, or until these become translucent and soft.

2

Heat the water in a large pan (a very large pan as you will add the rest of the ingredients to it eventually). Add the stock and dissolve it. Once dissolved, add the lentils, and bring the pan to the boil.

3

While boiling, carefully add the softened onions and leeks, as well as the chopped up carrots, into the water.

4

Allow to simmer for 45 minutes. Taste regularly and check the consistency of your lentils. You want them to get a little mushy, and comfortable to eat with a spoon straight out of the pan.

5

Add salt and pepper to taste.

6

If you like soup a little chunky, serve as is, with the coriander or parsley garnish. If you prefer something a little smoother, you can use a hand blender to mix it all together before serving.

Vegan pho

This tasty Vietnamese dish will delight everyone and provide warmth and comfort after a long day. Assemble the ingredients and the method couldn’t be easier! 
Vegan
Easy

Ingredients

  • Vegan vegetable stock (dissolve a cube in 2 litres of water)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 8 cloves of garlic, chopped (less is fine if you are not a fan!)
  • Sesame seed oil
  • Vegetable oil (or any kind of cooking oil, olive or ground nut would work too)
  • 3 whole star anise
  • 3 whole cloves
  • 1 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 2 bird’s eye chillies, chopped
  • 1 package of wide rice noodles

Method

1

Add a drizzle of sesame seed oil and vegetable oil to the pan along with the diced onions, ginger, chilli and garlic. Fry until the onions are soft and translucent, stirring occasionally. Once they are soft, allow to cool.

2

Make the broth by dissolving the vegetable stock in water, and adding this to your cool base. Add in the rest of the spices and simmer for twenty minutes.

3

In a separate pan, boil more water and cook your rice noodles, following the instructions on the packet. It should take around ten minutes, depending on your noodles. You can taste them to see how soft they are, and turn off the heat once they’re a texture you like.

4

Drain the water from the noodles and add them to bowls.

5

Keep the broth water, but sieve out the spices (star anise, chunks of ginger etc.) Add a few ladleful's of broth to each bowl, then decorate with garnishes of your choice.

Butternut squash & pumpkin soup

This mashup of vegan pumpkin soup and vegan butternut squash soup is delicious winter staple. Once made, this soup can be frozen and kept in the fridge for up to three months. Easy for those days when you are just too tired to cook! 
Vegan
Easy

Ingredients

  • 1 butternut squash
  • 1 pumpkin
  • 3 red onions
  • 2 litres vegetable stock
  • Rosemary and thyme
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Fresh chives (for the garnish)
  • Vegan yogurt

Method

1

Roughly chop the red onions. Use a sharp knife to cut up the squash and the pumpkin into small chunks.

2

Toss these into a couple of baking trays with a drizzle of olive oil, along with rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper.

3

Roast in an oven at 250 degrees centigrade for thirty minutes, turning occasionally. The vegetables should become soft when a fork prongs them. (The larger the chunks, the longer they will take to cook.)

4

Once soft, remove the veg and allow it to cool. Then add them to a large bowl with some vegetable stock and use a blender to mix. A thicker, orange soup will form. Add salt and pepper to taste.

5

Garnish with a healthy spoonful of vegan yogurt and some freshly chopped chives.
