Making a vegetable soup is also a great way to use up leftover vegetables. Just throw whatever leftover vegetables you have in the fridge into the crock pot. While you’re at it, don’t forget to spice up your soup with spices and herbs.
Here are some ideas of what vegetables you can use for a vegan vegetable soup:
- bell peppers,
- brussels sprouts,
You can also supplement and refine your vegetable soup with

Creamy delicious satiator
I had made my creamy vegetable soup with potatoes. They make the soup creamier and even more filling. In addition to potatoes, the soup includes zucchini, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and bell peppers. The vegetables combine perfectly with potatoes. Refined with onions, garlic, various spices and herbs, the result is a delicious vegetable soup, healthy and filling.
How to make vegetarian vegetable soup even creamier?
If you want to make your vegetable soup with potatoes even creamier, you can add some vegan cream or plant milk to it. For example, you can make your own almond milk, coconut milk or soy milk for the soup beforehand. Homemade plant milk tastes better than supermarket milk and contains no unhealthy additives. Vegan cream can be made from soy or oat cream, which you can find in supermarkets.
How to serve and store creamy vegetable soup with potatoes?
Serve the creamy vegetable soup with potatoes warm, for example with fresh herbs. You can serve it with fresh bread. The soup is filling and ideal as a main course for lunch or dinner. You can also serve it as an appetizer.
Store the vegan vegetable soup in a saucepan with the lid on in the refrigerator. Do not heat up the whole soup in the pot before serving, but only the portion that will be eaten immediately afterwards. Otherwise, the soup could quickly go bad if it is reheated several times. The vegetarian vegetable soup can be kept in the refrigerator for about 4 – 5 days. It will still taste delicious in the next few days.
