I love a warm, hearty, & nutritious soup on a chilly or rainy fall day. It’s a little boost of serotonin when the gloom hits & it warms me right up! Keep reading for 18 (!) amazing vegan soup recipes and bisques that you can make this fall.
One of my November wellness goals for 2022 is to eat soup for breakfast. Why? The soups rounded up here are so nutritious and filling that they make the perfect breakfast, setting you up for success for the day. Who says soup is only for dinner?
What’s in a good vegan soup?
A good, healthy vegan soup will usually have a vegetable broth base & a mixture of vegetables, whether they’re the main focus of the dish or not. Bisques & chowders are similar and are classically seafood-based, but these vegan bisques are thickened with a dairy alternative or roux. But ALL of them are delicious and will make you and your family happy throughout the colder months!
