Vegetable Soup

Jill Dalton
It is officially Fall (here) which means that it is time for soup. What better way to start the season than with a delicious Plant Based Vegan Vegetable Soup. This soup can either be made to be light and brothy or thicker and more robust depending on your preference just by cutting the vegetable stock. This recipe was inspired by a friend asking us, “Can you just show me how to make a super simple vegetable soup that I can make myself?”

  1. Jill, FYI, I think you mixed up the vegetable stock instruction. “1-2 liters vegetable stock (1 if you prefer brothy soup, 2 if you prefer thicker soup)”. Shouldn’t that be the opposite?

    1. Made this tonight for dinner! Absolutely what I was craving! Thank you for this recipe. Only charge I made was I was out of tomato paste so added a can of low sodium stewed tomatoes! Tomorrow I’m going to add some cannellini beans to get my beans in for the day!

  2. It smells delicious! I was planning on making soup anyways and I had all of the ingredients already. It’s in the instant pot as we speak and I can not wait to dig in. Our house loves your cookbook! Can’t wait for the second one.

  3. Please delete this comment when you have read it…
    In the veggie stock line above, I think you have your numbers crossed. 2 = more brothy soup, 1 = thicker soup. 🙂

    I have all the ingredients and it’s 32 degrees in the middle of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan this morning. Soup sounds so good today! Thank you for these recipes!

  5. Can you offer imperial units? I make my broth and don’t measure in liters. Also, fall is lowercase as seasons are lower case.

  6. I needed a go to Vegetable Soup/stew. This is awesome! I added some beans for the heck of it! Thanks so much Jill. I bought one of your cookbooks recently and am enjoying it so much! I’ve been plant based since March. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made!
