Nourishing Plant-Based Soup Recipes

These soups are packed with vegetables and full of flavor. Make big batches of soup and reheat for quick lunches or dinners throughout the week.

Soup is nourishing, healthy, and great for leftovers

It’s a real challenge to have quick and easy meals on hand that are also nourishing and healthy. Making a big pot of soup once a week can solve that problem. Soup is one of the most nourishing foods you can eat, as it is hydrating, easy to digest, full of vitamins and minerals (if made with lots of vegetables and good quality salt), and warming.

Each time you make soup, make enough for at least 3 meals, that way you can have it on hand to reheat for lunches or dinners throughout the week.

Vary the types of soup you make

It’s good to vary the kinds of soup you make, as each type of soup offers different benefits. Also, eating different kinds of soup gives you more variety, which leads to more satisfaction with your meals (so you’re less likely to want snacks and sweets). 
 
The three main types of soup I’m including here are: 
—Creamy (Puréed) Vegetable Soup (e.g., Creamy Broccoli Soup)
—Hearty Bean and Vegetable Soup (e.g., Minestrone Milanese)
—Miso Soup (e.g., Healing Miso Vegetable Soup)
 
Alternate between these three types often to avoid getting tired of soup!

Tips for reheating soup

When reheating leftover soup, just reheat the portion you are going to eat for that meal. That way the rest stays cold in the refrigerator and does not get overcooked from reheating several times.

Also, be sure to add something free to your soup when reheating it. For example, add some fresh chopped spinach, kale, or Swiss chard to Minestrone Milanese. This is so important to bring life back to your leftovers.

Finally, garnish your soup with something fresh, like sliced scallions, chopped parsley, cilantro, or basil, or toasted pumpkin or sunflower seeds. This adds color, texture, and flavor to your leftover soup.
