Soup is one of the ultimate comfort foods and no healthy diet is complete without it. One of the best ways to increase the immune-boosting power of your soup is to make it plant-based. This is easier said than done, but you can always use these tips to make your soup delicious, vegan, and healthy.

Vegan Broth

Most well-supplied grocery stores sell vegetable broth these days, but making your own is also an option. You can make your broth healthier and give it a richer flavor by picking your own ingredients, and onions, carrots, celery, and garlic are a good place to start.

No Dairy

Most people can’t imagine making a creamy soup without some dairy-based ingredients, but it’s not mission impossible. In addition to using naturally creamy veggies, you can replace dairy milk with plant-based alternatives and add some nut butters to the mix.

Using Slow Cooker

If you own a slow cooker, you should use it when making vegan soups because it can take them to a whole new level. This kitchen tool especially comes in handy when you’re using slow-cooking ingredients, such as dried beans and root veggies because it can help you stop them from overcooking.
