Creamy Vegan Veggie Soup

Substituting the parmesan for garlic, the butter for oil, and coconut- and or unsweetened almond milk (or soy) makes this a vegan version of Cathleen's deliciously creamy vegetarian soup!

Usually, I grow tired of having the same dish three days in a row (unless...perhaps...it's cake), but this... This worked really well at any occasion. I even had some for breakfast one of the days!

Creamy Vegan Veggie Soup
(Serves 3)

2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 small (red) onion, chopped
1 fat garlic clove, finely chopped
150g broccoli, cut into florets
3 carrots, peeled and chopped
100g frozen peas
Chopped mushrooms (optional, I had some leftover)
1L vegetable stock (I used 2 stock cubes)
2-3 cups almond/light coconut/soy milk
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp salt

- Start by heating up oil in a large casserole and soften the onion for about 5 minutes. Add garlic and fry for a further 2 minutes.

- Toss in vegetables and stir lightly for a minute, before pouring in the stock, the milk and the spices. Turn heat down to a simmer and cover. Cook until the carrots are tender, about 15-20 minutes.

- Season to taste and serve with some good crusty bread, or just enjoy a cup-a-homemade-soup at your leisure!

The last couple of days, sadly I have been poorly again and so it has been very quiet here and not a lot of cooking involved. For Robert Burns' night last night though, of course I rattled up some traditional (but vegetarian) haggis, neeps and tatties! Gotta make sure to celebrate the few special days of the year, right? Not to mention that it is absolutely deeeelicious! I hope you have had a good week so far *smiles*

  1. Usj, så kjedelig å ikke bli skikkelig frisk. Håper du blir det snart. Her er det vår i luften og det er så deilig. Jeg har tusen baller i luften selv for tiden, men i morgen håper jeg å få ut et innlegg igjen :)
    Denne suppen ser og høres nyyyydelig ut. Elsker suppe, og spiste det senest til lunsj i dag. Så beroligende og "koselig" å spise.

    1. Heheh, blir sikkert bra på og sjonglere etterhvert da ;)

      Denne supper var kjempegod! Og hvitløken var bra alternativ til ost - holder vampyrene unna og hjelper på forkjølelse, hihi x

  2. Haha, I agree with your cake statement. But to be honest, I don't get sick of many dishes. I am so boring.
    But this soup looks anything BUT boring :) This would be perfect on a cold night!

    1. Aww but Cathleen, it is YOUR recipe! I just veganified it! And you're absolutely right, it was perfect on a cold night! Thanks again hunni! x

  3. You're right -- cake is always a good plan, never gets old :) This looks SO tasty! We've been eating a lot of soup around here and could use a change from our usual creamy, pureed soups to something a little heartier -- this totally fits the bill! I'm sorry you're not feeling well. I hope you'll get some quality down-time, at least! The only thing I enjoy about being under the weather is the fact that I get to read. I hope you will feel better soon!

    1. Hey! Thanks so much Rose, I am well again now, but exhausted from work! Soup is always a lovely comforter and this was cooked up in no time :)
      OH reading, I just started reading a new book the other day, love it! :) I hope all is well at your end missy xx

  4. Yum yum! Looks great! Thanks for sharing! <3 - http://www.domesticgeekgirl.com
