Frequently-Asked Questions

What soup is vegan?

Any vegetable or plant-based soup has the potential to be vegan or vegetarian. However, some cooks will add a meat-based broth, cheese, butter, and more. It’s a good idea to ask for the ingredients used when ordering soup.

Which soup is best for health?

Adding soup to your diet promotes health by increasing the number of vegetables you consume in a day. You can also expect a filling meal with lower calories. Choose vegetable soup, tomato soup, minestrone, and any bean-based soup like black bean soup.

Are soup recipes time-consuming to make?

Many soup recipes are easy to make; some can even be made in one pot, which minimizes cleanup. For soups that require longer cooking time, consider using a slow cooker so it can simmer throughout the day.

Can you freeze soup?

Most soup recipes can be frozen, making them perfect for meal prepping. You can make a single or double batch of your favorite soup and freeze it in freezer-safe containers or bags for easy weeknight meals.

What to Serve with Vegan Soup

Here are some favorite side dishes and breads to serve along with your next veggie soup meal:

Storing Soup

Store soup in an airtight container in the fridge. Each soup will keep for different periods of time, but you can count on approximately 4 to 6 days when store properly.

You can also freeze soup in freezer-safe containers. Most soups will keep in the freezer for up to 2 months. Transfer frozen soup to the fridge overnight for thawing and then either heat it in the microwave or in a saucepan on the stovetop.
