January calls for hearty soups and stews with nutritious ingredients, like veggies. In our opinion, some of the best soup recipes are plant-based, and we wanted to share a roundup of our favorites here. From creamy mushroom soup to veggie-packed bowls of goodness, these comforting vegetable soup recipes will warm you up, even in frigid temperatures.
Creamy mushroom soup hits the spot this time of year, and this recipe is the best we’ve ever tasted. With bold flavors of garlic and thyme, it’s everything you want in a mushroom soup: chunky, comforting, and creamy.
We love when vegetable soup recipes are packed with healthy ingredients, like this one for loaded veggie barley soup. In addition to barley, it’s chock-full of kale, carrots, onions, celery, and fire-roasted tomatoes. We think it goes especially well with a warm loaf of crusty bread for dunking.
Here’s another recipe that’s full of hearty veggies, including sweet potatoes, zucchini, chickpeas, and green beans. It also has a splash of white wine, which gives it a unique flavor. Feel free to experiment and sub some vegetables for other options. You can also try replacing the vinegar with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice for acidity.
