Easy Vegan Vegetable Soup

Over time, my boyfriend and I have developed a nutritious vegetable soup which does not contain any animal products or bi-products. We've refined the recipe several times, especially in the area of the amount of each spice to use.

The recipe, which is very easy to prepare, is suitable for both vegetarian and vegan diets.

Types of Vegetarianism

Vegetarianism is the practice of eating fruits and vegetables and not eating meat, fish, or poultry. Some vegetarians include dairy products (milk and cheese) and eggs in their diet. Others do not.

There are many types of vegetarianism. The table below explains them.

Type of Vegetarianism
Description
Flexitarianism
A flexitarian is someone who follows a flexible vegetarian diet. The person follows a vegetarian diet most of the time, but will eat animal products at special occasion meals or business dinners.
Fruitarianism
A fruitarian is a person who only eats food which can be gathered or picked without harming the plant on which it grows. Examples of the type of food that a fruitarian will eat are nuts, apples, peaches, pears, and plums. Most vegetables are excluded from the diet because the plants dies after all the vegetables are picked.
Lacto-Ovo-Vegetarianism
A lacto-ovo vegetarian is a vegetarian who includes dairy products (milk, cheese, and yogurt) and eggs in their diet.
Lacto-Vegetarianism
A lacto-vegetarian is vegetarian who eats dairy products (milk, cheese, and yogurt), but does not include eggs in their diet.
Lessetarianism
A lessetarian attempts to eat less animal products without completely eliminating such food from their diet.
Macrobiotic Diet
A person on a macrobiotic diet eats whole grains, beans, vegetables, and seaweed. Some people on this type of diet eat fish and don't eat most types of fruit.
Ovo-Vegetarianism
An ovo-vegetarian eats eggs, but does not include dairy products (milk, cheese, and yogurt) in their diet.
Pesco-Vegetarianism
A pesco-vegetarian eats seafood and sea animals, but not sea mammals. Dairy products (milk, cheese, and yogurt) are sometimes included in the diet.
Pollotarianism
A pollotarian is a vegetarian who eats poultry, but not meat or fish.
Raw Veganism
People on a raw vegan diet only eat raw food. Some people on this type of diet consider raw foods to be those which have not been heated above 115 degrees Fahrenheit (46 degrees Celsius).
Semi-Vegetarianism
A semi-vegetarian is a person who eats some meats, but not others.
Su Vegetarianism
A su vegetarian is a person who does not eat garlic, leeks, onions, scallions, or shallots. This type of vegetarianism originated from Hinduism.
Veganism
Vegans do not eat any animal products or animal bi-products. They do not eat dairy products (milk, cheese, or yogurt), eggs, honey, or food which contains gelatin.
Ingredients for Vegan Vegetable Soup
Ingredients for Vegan Vegetable Soup | Source

Preparation and Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 1 hour
Ready in: 1 hour 20 min
Yields: 4 8-ounce bowls of soup

Adding Spices

The dill, parsley, and black pepper listed are the minimum amounts I recommend using. I determined these amounts after much experimentation, changing the amounts the first few times I made the soup.

Ingredients

  • 2 cubes vegetarian vegetable broth, dissolved in 4 cups (32 ounces) of water
  • canola oil or olive oil, to coat the bottom of a 2-quart pot
  • 1 cup carrots, sliced thin
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 2 large cloves garlic, diced
  • 1/2 sweet onion, diced
  • 2 small zucchini, sliced
  • 1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes, juice included
  • 1/8 teaspoon dill weed, minimum amount - you might want to add more
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley, minimum amount - you might want to add more
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, no more than this
  • 1 15-ounce can navy beans or white beans, rinsed

Nine Easy Cooking Steps

  1. Dissolve 2 vegetarian vegetable broth cubes in 4 cups of water. Set aside.
  2. Coat the bottom of a 2-quart pot with canola oil or olive oil.
  3. Sauté the carrots in the pot for a few minutes.
  4. Add the celery, garlic, and onions.
  5. Sauté the vegetables until tender.
  6. Add the vegetarian vegetable broth, zucchini, and can of diced tomatoes with juice.
  7. Add the dill, parsley, and pepper.
  8. Bring the soup to a boil, cover partly, and then simmer for 60 minutes.
  9. Add the navy beans (or white beans), and simmer until the beans are hot.

I appreciate your continued support.

I was anxious to get my recipe published, so I didn't calculate the nutritional values. My plan was go back, revise the recipe, and add the additional information.

Linda,

I'm glad you like my recipe. We developed it through a lot of trial and error and now Patrick won't try experimenting with adding anything to it.

I've added some corn kernels to my bowl of soup, which gave it a Southwest flavor. I've also added soy crumbles which are similar to ground beef. Being a vegetarian, and knowing that your husband is a butcher, I can't say anything more on that subject.


Daisy Mariposa profile image

Daisy Mariposa 4 years ago from Orange County (Southern California) Author

Debbie,

Thanks for reading my recipe. For those readers who are not vegetarians, it sounds as though your substituting other flavor cubes for the vegetarian vegetable cubes might be something to consider.


Sunshine625 profile image

Sunshine625 4 years ago from Orlando, FL

Very true about the butcher bit. Haha! I can go meatless a few days a week, but that's my limit. Have Patrick ship me over a bowl. Fed-Ex with dry ice should work fine!


Daisy Mariposa profile image

Daisy Mariposa 4 years ago from Orange County (Southern California) Author

Linda,

Thanks for stopping by again. Patrick will thrilled by your comment. I'll see what we can do.

So far, I've heard from vegetarians and non-vegetarians about the recipe, which is really nice. I've also heard from a mutual friend of ours who describes himself as a *lapsed vegetarian*.


Sunshine625 profile image

Sunshine625 4 years ago from Orlando, FL

If lapsed means "when from one extreme all the way over to the other extreme" then that's an accurate term for him.


Daisy Mariposa profile image

Daisy Mariposa 4 years ago from Orange County (Southern California) Author

Linda,

It's our mutual friend's term for himself...lapsed vegetarian, and I think it's accurate.

Daisy, thanks for that recipe. I really hate to get those store-soup packets, and though I do toss in different vegetables and sometimes legumes to make my own soup at home, a ready made, tried and tested easy recipe can be very helpful.

Oh so yummy looking and filled with so much information. Since becoming a Vegan just before last Christmas and eating my last piece of animal flesh, a poor turkey's leg, this poet has turned Vegan for a number of reasons and health being one of them. I am collecting as many recipes as I can in order to choose wisely when I shop. It's so nice to pass the meat and diary section now. Although I do eat soy and toful deserts. Thank you for sharing, I look forward to trying this delicious looking and I'm certain tasting Vegan soup.

Vincent,

Thanks for visiting again. We read the labels on everything we buy in the supermarket, even on items we've purchased many times. The ingredients sometimes change. Egg whites, in particular, have been added to foods where there were none previously.


Vincent Moore 3 years ago

Yes I read every label before it goes in my basket as well. I try as much as possible to avoid sugar and most definitely corn syrup, they are killers. I don't touch eggs and avoid egg whites as well. I substitute flax, unsweetened applesauce, and silken tofu for eggs and cream. Its much simpler and faster shopping now as a Vegan:-)

I follow a vegetarian diet out of many reasons; health; ethical; environmental and animal welfare. Religion is about the only thing that does NOT come into play for my reasons for being vegetarian.

Voted up, useful, interesting, awesome and shared.

Thanks for reading my recipe and posting your comment. Thanks, too, for sharing my Hub.

The soup is perfect as a main course dish. It's very filling. Doubling the ingredients in recipes doesn't always work, but I think I'll try it the next time I make the soup.

Linda (Sunshine625),

Thanks for posting again. I wonder whether Pinterest likes the soup or the Wedgwood Green Columbian serving bowl.

Hi Daisy,

The soup sounds easy to make and delicious. I eat mostly a vegetarian diet but not a vegetarian as I occasionally eat meat. I guess that I fall under the category of Flexitarianism.

I've followed your recipe for vegan vegetarian soup since the day you published this hub. I rate it a 10+. It's not only healthy but easy and nutritious. It's a once-a-week favorite and time to share it with others again. I'm always on the look-out for vegetarian recipes.
