2009_02_06-Soups.jpgSoups are great for vegetarians. They’re flexible (leave out the bacon, try vegetable stock instead of chicken), and they’re nourishing and filling too. When we’re on a soup kick we find ourselves eating vegetarian night after night. Here are some of the vegetarian soup recipes we’ve shared over the years.

Most of these are very vegan-friendly. Just ignore any instructions to add cheese.

Spinach and Lemon Soup with Orzo – Leave out the thickening egg and this is promptly vegan.

Hot and Sour Mushroom, Cabbage, and Rice Soup – This is our favorite soup this winter. This is vegan already (although we do love this with turkey broth).

Kale and Apple Soup – Leave out the pancetta, obviously.

Cashew Tomato Soup – Spicy, rich, and vegan.

Mushroom Soup – Super easy, and good left chunky or pureed smooht.

Fridge-Clearing Lentil Soup – Clears the fridge of broth, veggies, and any other yummy little bits.

Pomegranate Lentil Soup – Another lentil soup with the bright, seasonal flavor of pomegranate.

Tomato and White Bean Panade – Beans and bread make this soup hearty and filling.

Pumpkin Tortilla Soup – Warm, toasty pumpkin, cumin, and chilies.

Curried Vegetable and Chickpea Stew – A slow cooker recipe!

Sweet Potato and Tempeh Stew – Very satisfying!

Sweet Potato Soup with Miso and Ginger – Another sweet potato soup, with ginger and miso.

Creamy Leek and Yogurt Soup – Very easy and creamy.

Creamy Black-Eyed Pea Soup with Cumin – Whole toasted cumin seeds and fresh thyme really liven up canned beans.
