Top 10 Vegan Winter Soup Recipes

10 Thick, Rich, Hearty, Meal-In-A-Bowl Winter Soups from Savvy Vegetarian

When it’s cold and snowy, and the days are short and dark, I just want to stay in with a good book and a bowl of hot sustaining soup.

I get my exercise shopping for soup ingredients and cooking the soups. On days I actually make it to the gym, I might eat two bowls at once.

My Top 10 All Time Favorite Vegan Winter Soups:

These substantial winter soups all involve beans or lentils. They may have grains or pasta added, or can be served with whole grains or pasta or bread. Make them on the stove top, in a crock pot or even in a pressure cooker.

Adapt these meals in a bowl to your taste, and make your tummy very happy!
