How to make healthy vegan soups
It's easier than you think to make amazing plant based soup that tastes just as good as its counterparts
- Layering flavors. We're talking onion, garlic, super flavorful broth, spices, fresh herbs, more veggies, and SALT! Don't underestimate the power of salt and a squeeze of lemon for brightness. The key to a flavorful soup is slowly building the flavors.
- Adding umami: A bit of soy sauce, miso, or tomato paste go a long way in adding that savory flavor.
- Don't skip the fat. Cook the veggies in plenty of extra virgin olive oil for flavor and mouthfeel. Use non-dairy milks or cashew cream to make amazingly creamy soup sans the dairy!
Now break out your pots and slow cookers because we’ve got a whole lot of healthy soup flawlessness at our fingertips!
