Easy Soups - Two Quick Recipes

Updated on August 25, 2013

Are Vegan Soups Less Tastfull Than Regular Soups?

If you think that's the case you really must try these recipes. I used to be one of that people that said food must be served with a piece of meat or meatballs. Except for the dessert, all the other courses must have some kind of chopped animal with it. I know this sounds awfull. And truly it is.

Thankfully my little sister is a vegan for so many years and she advised me to try experimenting with vegetables and spices to reduce my intake of meat. Great benefit, I would feel a lot better if I did. So I tried.... and it was true. I do feel better and I don't hunger for meat as much as I did.

Back to my soups..... as I experimented I developed a taste for tasty vegan soups. Easy and fast to make, that's what I like. Family and friends love them and ask me to make them more often, so they can come over for dinner.

I hope you will like my recipes as much as they and I do. Enjoy!

Two Nice And Quick Soups

Past week I made my homemade soups so I could take pictures for this lens. There are always a couple of ingredients that I use in almost every soup (and meal). I just can't live without those ingredients. When you want to make my recipes make sure that you have:

Ingredients

- Garlic or Garlic Powder (I always use powder)

- Stock Cubes (vegetable)

- Unions

- Honey

- Cheese

- Salt

Number 1 - Leek Soup

Ingredients

- Leek (3 x)

- One big union

- 1,5 litre of water

- 3 stock cubes

- Garlic Powder

- 3 slices of cheese (just the one you like)

- a little salt (only if you want)

Step 1

- Pour 1,5 litres in a pan of soup and wait till the water is boiling.

- Than add the chopped leeks, union, stock cubes on top

- Cover the ingredients with a thin layer of garlic powder

Step 2

- Stir all ingredients till they are mixed and the stock cubes are dissolved.

- Then let the soup boil for 15-20 minutes

Step 3

- Put all ingredients in the blender

- Watch out and hold the top of the blender, otherwise it will pop and you'll have hot soup all over the place.

- When the soup is smooth, you add two or three slices of cheese

Step 4

- Stir till the cheese is transformed into little pieces.

- Add a little salt if you like

- If you like the soup to be sweet, add a tablespoon of honey

Step 5

- Serve the soup when it's a little cooled down

- Smakelijk eten! Enjoy you dinner!

Number 2 - Parsnip Soup

This is a forgotten vegetable and that's really a shame!

The soup is creamy and sweet with a really nice aftertaste.

Ingredients

- 1 litre of water

- 5 pieces of parsnip (you could use carrots instead, but you don't get the creamy flavour)

- 2 stock cubes (vegetable)

- 1 big union

- Garlic Powder

- a little salt

- a little tablespoon of honey

Step 1

- Peel the parsnip with a peeler

- Then cut the parsnips in small pieces

- Chop the union

Step 2

- Let the water boil

- Add all the chopped ingredients and the stock cubes

- Stirr till the stock cubes are dissolved

Step 3

- Then you put a layer of Garlic powder on top

- Let the soup boil till the parsnips (or carrots) are smooth

Step 4

- When the parsnips are smooth enough, poor all the ingredient into a blender

- Watch out and hold the top of the blender, or it will pop and you'll have hot soup all over you

Step 5

- Put a tablespoon of honey in the soup

- Add a pinch of salt

- Let the soup cool down for a little while

- Smakelijk eten! Enjoy your dinner!
