Vegan Lasagna Soup Recipe (Gluten-Free & Oil-Free)

This lasagna soup is fantastic because it packs all of the traditional lasagna flavors without all of the prep work. 

How To Make This Special Recipe 

In your dutch oven or in a large pot, start heating your garlic with 1-2 tablespoons of water. Once that starts cooking, add in all of your vegetables, including the cherry tomatoes. 

Let the vegetables soften for about 5 to 7 minutes, and then add in your lentils, water, and tomato sauce. If your tomato sauce does not have any seasonings in it, add in some Italian herbs, too. 

Mix everything together and bring it to a boil. Once it’s boiling, break-up your lasagna noodles and slowly add them to the soup. 

Cover the soup and let it simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until the lasagna noodles and lentils are fully cooked. 

Once they are cooked, add in your spinach and let it wilt, mixing the soup well. Serve this soup with basil, red pepper flakes, and/or nutritional yeast as a topping. 

Hack It 

  • Amp up the flavor: Top this recipe with some vegan mozzarella or cashew cheese ricotta for a flavor boost. 
  • Kick up the spice too: Add in red pepper flakes to give it an extra kick. 
  • Amp up the nutrients: Add in extra veggies, like eggplant, zucchini, or kale, to give it an added nutrient boost. 
  • Serve With Vegan Cream Cheese: Find the recipe here

Vegan Red Curry Soup 

If the winter blues start to creep up on you, this vegan red curry soup will do the trick. It is super comforting with the curry flavors, and it is filled with veggies, so it’s nutritious too. 

How To Make This Recipe

This vegan red curry soup is a breeze to make. First of all, you’ll need to roast your sweet potatoes and red bell peppers in the oven for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees. 

While that’s roasting, you can saute the garlic and onions until translucent. Add in the red curry paste and stir until the garlic and onions are fully covered. 

Once the roasted veggies are done, add them to the pot along with the vegetable broth, almond milk, peanut butter, ginger, salt, and brussels sprouts.

Give it a good stir and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. After that, take your immersion blender (or put almost half of the soup in a regular blender) and puree ‘til about half the soup is smooth. 

Separate it into bowls and garnish with fresh cilantro and some peanuts for that final touch. 

Hack it – Tips on how to make this recipe better

Vegan Tomato Soup Recipe With Red Lentils & Cashews

This isn’t your grandma’s traditional vegan tomato soup. This tomato soup remix has some extra health benefits from lentils, cashews, and the fresh basil. 

How To Make This Recipe

You only need one pot to make this creamy Vegan Tomato Soup recipe. A handheld immersion blender or countertop blender will work to make this soup have a smooth texture.

You start by sauteing the pepper and onions until softened, then add the remaining ingredients to the pot, bring to a boil and let simmer for about 10 minutes until all the lentils are cooked. 

Lentils are cooked once they are soft and no longer crunchy. I find a tell tale sign of red lentils being cooked is when they turn a yellow color.

Hack it – Tips on how to make this recipe even better

  • Add a vegan grilled cheese on the side. 
  • Swap the basil or just add-in some spinach for an extra nutrient boost.
