Perfect Soup for Beginners
New to cooking? Soups like this are great for beginners and make cooking at home a breeze. Plus, this recipe makes a large portion ideal for storing leftovers in the fridge. If you are planning on storing leftovers, note that it thickens in the fridge. When time to serve again add more vegetable broth 1/2 cup at a time until you’re satisfied with the texture.
Here’s the simple cooking process:
- Add diced onions, minced garlic, and chopped herbs to an oiled pot.
- Add in the pumpkin puree.
- Add in the beans, coconut milk, vegetable broth, and vegan cheeses.
- Add in the lasagna noodles.
- Plate and top with crispy sage and optional arugula sprouts.
Whether you’re a pro chef or a beginner, this soup seriously so easy for all levels. If you are just cooking for 1, still cook the full portion and store the leftovers in a jar so you can eat it throughout the week.
Being certified in plant based nutrition, it is important to me to create recipes with ingredients picked mindfully. You will not find any ultra processed ingredients here! Refer to the ingredient list to see which exact ingredients I used in this soup. This soup is HEARTY and a little goes a long way. Because it’s packed with so many nutrients from the beans, pumpkin, and fresh herbs, a small amount of this soup will truly keep you full and energized for hours. Keep the leftovers stored in the fridge (make sure to let cool completely before covering it and adding to the fridge) and heat yourself up a bowl for lunch or dinner. Keep in mind this soup is thick, so when reheating you’ll likely need to add more vegetable broth to loosen it up.
