Soup Season

Vegan Split Pea Soup

Once upon a time, I was a Linetti, a soup hater. (That's a Brooklyn Nine Nine reference, by the way.) Once I learned how to cook, I began to understand the magic of a good bowl of soup.


The soup pictured here is a staple at my house once the weather starts to cool. It a vegan split pea soup, there's no ham substitute or any flavoring to add a ham-like flavor, this soup features the sweetness of the carrots, the creaminess of the peas, and the savory depth of Nooch and thyme. It's one of the best things I make. The recipe comes from Kris Carr's 2017 Crazy Sexy You program. I still follow the recipe exactly so unfortunately I can't share it, but, you can definitely find some tasty vegan split pea soup recipes online.

My first vegan Pho

My first time having Pho was also my first time making Pho. The trick with the broth is to never let it come to a boil, this way the citrus slices you've included to flavor the broth don't turn everything bitter. The broth is so incredibly flavorful and the veggies are bright and crisp, the jalapeños add a subtle spiciness that rounds out the dish.




Tortilla Soup

I wish I had a better photo of the soup above. It's a tortilla soup by Isa Chandra Moskowitz, you can find the recipe in her book I Can Cook Vegan. If you're looking for a great vegan cookbook, you can't go wrong with anything by Isa.


So, as you can see, I'm no longer a soup hater. I finally understand the comfort a hot bowl of soup provides on a chilly day. I love to have a nice piece of sourdough or Italian bread spread with vegan butter alongside my soups. If I really want to do it up, sometimes I'll make garlic bread and dip that into the soup. These little extras really can make you feel like you are nourishing yourself body and soul.


Tell me about your favorite vegan soups and/or share any questions you have in the comments below.



Nooch

This is Nooch, I mentioned it above in the split pea soup section. Nooch is a staple for vegans because it's amazing. It will get its own blog soon. 😃

UGH! Now I gotta go searching for that pea soup recipe! I am excited that it is getting colder and turning into Soup Eating Weather. I can find my nirvana with a simple veggie broth and pasta... Anything more fancy is just icing on the cake!

I make soups from September to May- routinely. and, then occasionally in the summer months (typically cold, fruit versions). They are a great midday snack or an additon to a healthy meal.

I have never tried a cold fruit soup before, if you have recipes you're willing to share, I would love that!
