It’s vegan soup season again!
Are you searching for something that will warm you up on a cold, autumn evening? Or are you looking for something creamy, smooth, and tasty to make for a meal? Autumn or no autumn – soup is always a good answer! There are so many veggie soup recipes, such as potato soups, butternut squash soups, lentil soups, and many more! Most of them are vegetarian, but it is super easy to make them 100% vegan. Plus they are good leftover food and can be very affordable, which is amazing if you’re on a budget.
Are vegan soups are healthy?
The best part of vegan soups is how full they are with healthy vegetables. The possibility of having so many diverse combinations with all kinds of veggies can be a help to meet some of your daily nutrients and vitamins.
Following a vegan diet, it’s important to eat balanced and varied. Sometimes it can be confusing with what exactly you need to eat and what the main sources of some nutrients are. All people, especially those with plant-based preferences, have to eat from six plant food groups every day, to fully get everything your body needs. In addition, vegans need to supplement with vitamin B12.
Nutrient sources in plant based soup
So what kind of nutrients its possible to get from a vegan soup?
Most of them are made with beans, lentils, peas, and leafy greens such as spinach, kale, bok choy, which are filled with iron and protein. Cooked legumes have 10-20 grams of protein per cup!
Furthermore, to make your vegan soup richer and tastier, you can top it off with some nuts and seeds, which are also good sources of protein, iron, fiber, magnesium, zinc, selenium, and vitamin A. 28g of nuts contain 5-12 grams of protein. Try to use unblanched and unroasted varieties when possible, because nutrients can be lost during processing. Another interesting addition can be nutritional yeast, which will also cover vitamin B12.
Moreover, products like tofu, cauliflower, broccoli, and quinoa are chlorine-rich plant foods, which are important for the proper functioning of your body. For consistency, eggplant and mushrooms are a great way to get a “meaty” texture in the vegetable form!
For the most part soups are easy and flexible, therefore, it’s effortless to create them vegan-style! Ingredients can be easily added and replaced, depending on your preferences and wishes.
