This Vegan Lasagna Soup recipe features all your favorite lasagna flavors without all the work! You’ll enjoy lasagna noodles smothered in rich marinara tomato soup, and topped with a creamy, cheesy, ricotta topping.
I love a good lasagna — with the creamy ricotta layers and lots of tender noodles. Of course, all those layers are infused with marinara sauce and topped with yummy mozzarella. I don’t like skimping on those layers either. Are you with me?
That’s what’s so great about this vegan lasagna soup recipe. Because you can add as much or as little of that creamy ricotta sauce as you want.
Why This Recipe is a Winner
- Lasagna noodles are cooked right into the soup, transforming this into a one-pot wonder soup
- The thick, tomato-infused broth is made with lots of garlic and veggie crumbles for added plant-based protein
- Adding a vegan ricotta cream topping to the hot soup causes a melty, cheesy flavor for an irresistible soup!
What You Need
You can find the full printable recipe, including ingredient quantities, below. But first, here are some explanations of ingredients and steps to help you make this recipe perfect every time.
Here are the ingredients you’ll need for this recipe:
- Olive oil — Any neutral oil will work here to sauté the crumbles, onion, and garlic
- Veggie crumbles — There are so many veggie crumbles to choose from these days, such as Gardein, Bocca, Beyond Beef Crumbles. Or you can use Impossible Ground too.
- Chopped onion — I like using a yellow onion, but a white onion could work here too
- Garlic — We’ll use up to 4 cloves of garlic for the soup (and more for the vegan ricotta)
- Vegetable broth — Use a high-quality vegetable broth for the tastiest soup
- Canned tomatoes — You’ll need a can of petite diced tomatoes and crushed tomatoes
- Tomato paste — A little bit of tomato paste makes for a thicker soup
- Dried spices — We’ll add dried basil, oregano, and thyme (or you could use an Italian spices blend)
- Lasagna noodles — You’ll want 6 – 8 large lasagna noodles. Or if you have broken lasagna noodles, this is great too, because we’ll be breaking them into pieces anyway
- Mozzarella shreds — There are so many great vegan mozzarella shreds these days, but two that are readily available and great choices for this soup are Daiya and Follow Your Heart
- Dairy-free parmesan — You can make your own vegan parmesan or buy it at health food stores or online
- Dairy-free ricotta — My recipe for creamy vegan ricotta is a game-changer for this soup. I highly recommend it, although you can find dairy-free ricottas at some health food stores
- Fresh parsley — Of course adding some fresh parsley is purely optional, but it adds a pop of color and even a bit of fresh, flavor!
Parsley is easy to grow. Keep a parsley plant in a beautiful planter, then move it inside during the winter and outside for the summer. This gives you access to beautiful parsley all year long!
How to Make Vegan Lasagna Soup
- Cook Crumbles and Aromatics — Cook the veggie crumbles, and then add chopped onion and cook them until tender. Finally, you’ll add the chopped garlic and cook for a bit until the garlic is tender.
- Stir in Broth and Seasonings — Stir in the broth, tomatoes, tomato paste, and seasonings.
- Add Lasagna Noodles — Break the lasagna noodles into bite-size pieces and stir these into the pot. Bring the soup to a low boil, and then reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover the pot and simmer 15–20 minutes, until the noodles are tender.
- Make the Creamy Ricotta Sauce — In a bowl stir together the vegan ricotta, vegan mozzarella, and vegan parmesan. This mixture is so good you can eat it with a spoon, but be sure to save some for your soup too.
- Serve — To serve, ladle hot soup into serving bowls and add dollops of the ricotta cream mixture, and then garnish with fresh parsley.
