VEGETABLE RICE SOUP
This is a great vegetable rice soup vegan recipe that you can make in just one pot with simple, easy-to-find and affordable vegan ingredients. For me, winter means that I enjoy a huge variety of new and classic soups that will fill me up with nutrients, and energy and of course keep me warm. Believe it or not, soups are one of my favorite dishes as they are really easy to make and comfort food for sure. Therefore, I always like to make plant-based soups, and trying new soup recipes it’s a must.
In order to make this hearty and healthy soup I wanted to add rice, as this was new for me when making soup recipes. Moreover, this easy-to-make comfort food recipe can be a great vegan main course recipe together with a delicious side dish such as a fresh salad.
VEGETABLE SOUP SEASONING
With the delicious flavors of the vegetables used in this rice soup, I only season this hearty soup with paprika, garlic powder, and salt. Also, I used olive oil to fry the garlic cloves which gives a great flavor too. If you wish you can season this vegetable soup with salt and pepper and the end result would be lovely. However, if you want to add more seasoning and you are looking for more ideas check the list below.
- Lemon juice when serving.
- Dried thyme.
- Black pepper.
- Onion powder.
- Curry powder.
Additionally, if you don’t want to use olive oil, you can replace this ingredient with another oil of your choice, or for an oil-free option just cook the garlic together with the onion and a pinch of salt. Furthermore, I used vegan bouillon powder which you can replace with vegetable broth that can also be used when cooking the onion and garlic. Vegetable broth is great when cooking soup as it gives a great flavor to your dish.
