With fall upon us, we need something to warm us from the inside out. This Meatless Monday, warm up with a soothing vegetarian soup.
Now that fall is upon us, it’s time to retire that barbecue for the season and start using our stoves again. On a cool and wet October day, nothing warms the soul quite like a big, steaming bowl of soup. This Meatless Monday warm up with one of these soothing vegetarian soups.
Zuppa di Fagioli
A traditional Italian soup, zuppa di fagioli is often overshadowed by its cousin minestrone. Loaded with vegetables, creamy white beans, and zesty herbs, this soup is a cost effective way to satisfy a hungry family. Serve it with crusty buttered bread.
Luscious Lentil Soup
Lentil soup may not sound entirely appealing to many people; however, with the addition of seasonal beets, this fibre-rich soup gets a touch of sweet and a whole lot of colour. Plus, creamy coconut milk creates a smooth, rich broth.
Winter Greens Soup with Parmesan Garlic Croutons
Feeling a little under the weather? This soup, packed with iron and vitamins A and C thanks to the winter greens, may be just what the doctor ordered. Top it all off with crunchy, cheesy homemade sourdough croutons.
Family-Friendly Sweet Potato Soup
Short on time? Have dinner simmering on the stove in fewer than 20 minutes—then, just leave it alone for 30 minutes while you prep the kids’ lunches or enjoy a cup of tea to yourself. To make this recipe vegetarian, simply swap out the chicken broth for vegetable broth.
Red Hot Tomato Soup
Tomato soup is a comfort food for many people; however, the stuff that comes in a can is often loaded with sodium and other additives. This simple tomato soup is the perfect replacement. Even better is it takes only 15 minutes to prepare. Serve it with a gooey grilled cheese sandwich.
Cheesy Waffle Soldiers with Broccoli
Feel like a kid again with this broccoli soup, complete with chewy, cheesy waffle strips, just waiting to be dipped. Many broccoli soups are loaded with cream, butter, and cheese; however, this version skips all that and instead relies on fresh flavours from leeks, garlic, spinach, and lemons.
