My Vegan Soup Recipes

Here is a list of my simple vegan soup recipes which have been tried and tested by me. No egg or dairy obviously, so suitable for people with egg and dairy intolerances. The thing I like about soups is that you can pack a whole lot of nutrients into them.


Carrot and Coriander Soup

Preparation time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 30 minutes

680 g / 1 1/2 lb of carrots

As required sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

As required grated coriander and freshly chopped coriander

Method:

1. Chop the onion and gently fry in the olive oil in a large saucepan or frying pan until transparent.

2. Chop the carrots and add to the pan, frying for a further two or three minutes.

3. Add the ground coriander along with the salt and the pepper and stir well.

4. Boil the water and add to a jug. Add the stock cube and stir until dissolved. Add to the chopped onion and carrots, turn the heat down and gently simmer for a further 20 minutes.

5. Add the mixture to a blender and blend until smooth or use an electric hand blender as I do. Add the fresh coriander and serve.

Leek and Potato Soup

vegan potato and leek soup

Preparation time: 5 minutes Cooking time: 15 minutes

This soup is a classic which is almost foolproof to make. I wasn't going to add this as it is so simple but as it's one of my favourite vegan soup recipes, I have added it. You can add all sorts of vegetables to this recipe. Try carrots and peas. I like it simple.

Ingredients:

2 large potatoes

1 large leek

1 pint vegetable stock

Blob of soya spread or olive oil

Pinch of salt

Optional:

Cornstarch to thicken (the picture above hasn't been thickened)

Chopped parsley

Mehod:

1. Heat oil or soya spread in a non stick pan.

2. Add the chopped leeks and cubed potatoes. The best way to chop a leek in my opinion is to chop the ends off it and cut it right down the centre lengthways. Then cut it again lengthways and chop it through the width. This way, you don't have the rings of leeks but little chopped sections.

3. Cook slowly for 5 minutes or so.

4. Add the vegetable stock to the pan and simmer for a further ten minutes or so until potatoes are cooked.

5. For a thicker soup, add some cornflour to a small amount of water, mix into a paste and add to the soup. Heat through and add some freshly chopped parsley if you like.

Tomato Soup (simple)



Preparation time: 5 minutes Cooking time: 1 hr 30 minutes

This is so simple, I don't even know what the measurements are. I have seen lots of vegan tomato soup recipes with added coconut milk, soya cream, soya spread and potatoes but if I am cooking a homemade soup, I like them to be reasonably healthy. This one is gorgeous!!

Ingredients:

Olive oil

Sprinkle of dried basil

1 small onion

A bunch of very ripe tomatoes (I always make this soup when my tomatoes are just about to go mouldy)

1 pint of Water

Veggie cube

1 tin tomatoes

Method:

1. Place the overripe tomatoes in a roasting pan with a glug of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Roast for 45 minutes on a fairly high heat.

2. Ten minutes before they are due, pour some of the juice into a pan and fry the chopped onion.

3. Sprinkle with dried basil and stir. Add the tin of tomatoes along with the tomatoes from the oven. Pour boiling water over the top so they are just covered, and then sprinkle a veggie cube over and stir.

4. Simmer for 3/4 of an hour and then leave to cool slightly before blending.

vegan tomato soup For a really healthy non fat version - try this:

1. Add the tomatoes, onion and basil to a roasting tin and cook for 20 minutes or so.

2. Add some water and a crumbled veggie stock to the tin and cook for a further half an hour or so.

You do not need to add potatoes to make the soup thick. The thickness will depend on how much water you use.
