With hot summer days just around the corner for many of us, giving the spotlight to soups (vegan soup recipes, no less) might not seem like the most reasonable choice. But even with warmer weather incoming, we’re firm believers that soup should be celebrated no matter the season.

“Why soups?” you might ask. Well, they’re healthy as anything, for a start! They’re also pretty convenient and can be prepared in larger batches. You can store them and keep them for rainy days when you don’t have time to make something from scratch. And they make the perfect office lunch.

Soups are usually prepared with different vegetables and pulses, so they’re full of fiber and vitamins and all those good macronutrients. And what a better meal to have when you want to eat something light but yet still hearty? Grab a spoon! They also have a higher water content, which should help you stay hydrated even on the hottest of days.

If you’re still not convinced that soup is the greatest dish out there, wait until you see these 8 amazing vegan soup recipes. What can we say? We’ve never backed down from a challenge and we’re not about to start now. The soup recipes we’ve selected are all vegan and pack enough nutrients to keep you full until your next meal.

Another healthy vegan soup recipe with pretty basic ingredients is this flavorful Potato Leek Soup. It’s our go-to when we need a little something to warm us up.

The next day you can just start cooking. One other piece of advice we feel we must give you – if you can help it, don’t omit the lemon juice. It makes all the difference in the world when it comes this soup. It adds a fresh and citrusy aroma, and connects the other ingredients beautifully.

We know, we know. Kids hate broccoli….and so do plenty of adults. But after learning about the health benefits it carries, broccoli has become one of our favorites over here at Samsung Food. Broccoli’s fiber count provides a great support for your digestive health. It’s also a very powerful antioxidant, proven to reduce inflammation in your body and lower the risks of various chronic diseases. If those aren’t reasons enough to love this flower-shaped green vegetable, then we don’t know what is. What we appreciate most about this creamy vegan soup is that it lets the broccoli shine without tasting like you’re just eating straight-up blended greens.

Broccoli isn’t the only ingredient by any means, but it’s definitely the most important one. All the other ones can be added or tweaked to your liking. But definitely add plenty of salt and pepper!

If there was a competition for the prettiest soup out there, Borscht would probably score highly. And for good reason. It’s a complete stunner! We simply can’t get enough of its pinky and red colors. Though this Ukrainian beetroot soup is beloved in Eastern Europe, its variations have found their way through cuisines all around the world.

The classic Borscht is cooked with different kinds of meat, but we’re offering you a taste of something different. Just one sip of the vibrant Vegan Borscht is all it takes to convince you that you’re not missing out by excluding meat. On the contrary, we feel like the veggies can shine the brightest in this vegan soup version. The lemon juice adds a nice zing to it, so feel free to add as much as you like. And don’t forget about dill – it brings an authentic flavor to the soup. We also like to top it off with a nice spoon of creamy vegan yogurt. Beautiful!

There probably isn’t a cuisine out there that offers a wider choice of vegan dishes, than Thai. This Southeast Asian cuisine relies heavily on fresh herbs and vegetables, and limited dairy products. So it’s no wonder that the vegan dishes are outstanding in taste and flavor.

One of our favorite Thai specialties that’s originally plant-based is sweet Coconut Soup. In our home-made version, we usually use a mixture of different mushrooms, like white button and shitake, but any variety works just as well. Some people like to go crazy with cilantro, but we know it’s a polarizing ingredient. Like most soups, you should always adjust the spices and herbs to your liking. You can add rice or noodles if you want, and then this goes from simple vegan soup recipe to a filling evening meal.

While travelling through Southeast Asia on this vegan soup recipe journey, you’d be silly not to admire all the great things Vietnamese cuisine has to offer. And naturally, Pho takes the cake. This soup is so good, you’ll wish you’ve made two batches right away.

The original dish is made with chicken or beef, but we’re simply in awe of its plant-based cousin. Honestly, pho is so easily adaptable that you can use pretty much any veggies you have in your pantry – but we do recommend keeping the mushrooms for their deep umami taste. Adding tofu is great for hitting that protein target too.

Jumping back to Europe to prepare a comforting meal, our choice has never been clearer. Meet the gorgeous Vegan Zuppa Toscana! We are still in shock that this Italian dish comes together in only 45 minutes. It’s so creamy, healthy and hearty. Instead of regular spicy Italian sausages, this recipe asks for vegan ones. If you don’t keep meat-flavored vegetable soup base on hand, a vegetable stock cube works perfectly well. Just make sure to adjust the amount of water you add so that the saltiness levels are to your liking. The slight bitterness of the kale complements the sweetness of the potatoes perfectly. The kale also adds a touch of green vibrance, making this soup a true looker.
