I am so in the mood for soup right now. Something about fall, and I go a little crazy, I start buying dried beans in bulk, making chicken stock and collecting soup recipes. Somebody please stop me before I start polishing my Le Creuset Dutch oven!

The best part of having this obsession is that I can freeze the left-overs in 1-quart containers. Which seems to be the perfect amount for lunches all winter long. Maybe it has to do with wanting to preserve the fall harvest. I don’t really know. But these are the soups that are on my radar for the weeks to come. 

Vegan Soups

Here are some of my favorite plant based vegan soups for you to try this winter. They’re free from dairy or animal products. If you’re looking for a fantastic vegan broth, I recommend Imagine brand No Chicken. It has the best flavor.
