I absolutely love any good vegan soup recipes. They are so warm and comforting, perfect for the cooler weather. Honestly, I even love soup in the summer. In Jamaica, where the temperature rarely goes below 60℉, we still eat lots of soup traditionally. With the right ingredients, they can even be a filling dinner or side option.

I also have adaptations of traditionally non-vegan soups for us plant-based folk to satisfy that craving. So without further ado, let’s see these vegan soup recipes!
