4 Amazing Soups for Wintery Warmth! (Vegan) is really a post for both autumn and winter alike. We’ve definitely entered soup season in Oregon, and I’m loving it! Soup with bread is one of my favorite meals. I feel like soups are a fabulous way to use the leftovers in your fridge, get loads of veggies in (especially for my wee man), and they’re quick and easy. Sold. In this post I have the following 4 soups (click on soup title for link to recipe): Creamy Tomato & Cauliflower (my FAVORITE), Pumpkin Coconut Curry, Creamy Broccoli, Lentil & Sauteed Mushroom.
I’ve been on a soup kick lately for two reasons: COLD WEATHER & my kiddo has sadly become anti-veggie. UGH! I get his vegs in by giving him pureed soups, smoothies, and pureed sauces. He used to eat raw tofu and virtually any veggie. So.Stinkin’.Frustrating. 🙁 Anyway, my soups are always crazy flavorful. I need my food to be loaded with flavor. I’m not a fan of blandness. I promise you that you’ll get loads of veg and protein from these awesome soups as well! Enjoy your fall & winter warmth with me and slurp these up with a dope homemade or rustic bread of sorts. Make Saturday your official soup day! Taco Tuesdays & soup Saturdays are my fave. ‘Til next time, peeps… 😉
