This Vegan Superfood Soup is filled with healthy vegetables and plant-based nutrients to keep your body fueled!


Time has been slipping away from me. I feel as though each day outpaces me before I even have a chance to warm up. I’ll blink and suddenly it’s 5:00. In nursing school I spend about 4-5 hours a day studying or working in a regular week; or 6-8 hours during exam weeks. I take this field so seriously and I’m determined to do well.

Unfortunately, this has meant that I’ve had less time for my blog. It’s easy to create recipes because I still cook for myself and my husband… but sitting down at the computer and typing everything up is what gets me! Still, I have a ton of great recipes to share with you, and I’ll try to eke them out as often as I can :) 

Today’s recipe is perfect for this time of year – warm and cozy without being too heavy. As much as I love my pumpkin mac and cheese, it definitely hits different than this vegan superfood soup! I also love soups because they’re so customizable. Now that I think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever found a soup recipe in a cookbook and actually stuck to it. I always have to put my own spin on things

! And it works out that way, especially if there are veggies in the fridge to use up. I hope you’ll take a similar approach with this recipe – it’s meant to be more of a template than anything. Feel free to customize or substitute to your heart’s desire! Enjoy!

Ingredients
  

The Veggies

  • 4 Tbs Olive or Avocado Oil
  • 1 White Onion rough dice
  • 2 Cloves Garlic finely minced
  • 1 Jalapeño seeds removed, diced
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Green Bell Pepper rough dice
  • 1 Cup Chopped Carrots rough dice
  • 3-4 Stalks Celery rough dice

The Soup

  • 4 Cups Vegetable Broth
  • 2 Cups Water
  • 1 Tsp Salt or more, to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 Tsp Ground Turmeric

Finishing Touches

  • Juice from 1/2 Lemon
  • 1/2 Cup Cucumbers quartered
  • 1/2 Cup Spinach finely chopped
  • Celery Greens if you want
  • Hemp Seeds if you want
  • Gluten-Free or Plain Pasta if you want

Instructions
 

  • To start, bring your oil to medium-high heat in a large pot.
  • Add in your vegetables and sauté until they begin to brown. You want them to have a bit of char, but still maintain their firmness.
  • When they're just browned, add in the vegetable broth, water, salt, and spices. Stir for a minute, then carefully taste and adjust seasoning if desired (i.e. add more salt).
  • Simmer the soup for 10 minutes on low heat. When done, remove from heat.
  • Add in the lemon juice, spinach, and cucumbers. Do NOT add in the greens earlier than this, they will wilt.
  • Garnish with celery greens or hemp seeds, if you'd like.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • I would say that this serves 2 people as a full meal, and 3-4 as a side. Adding pasta will increase these numbers!
  • Feel free to add in any other vegetables you have on hand, like green beans, asparagus, scallions, kale, etc. 
  • Make sure to fully remove the ribs and seeds from the jalapeño for less heat. If you like things spicy, keep them in!
