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.
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!
