Vegan Minestrone Soup For The Soul

Hands down my kids’ favorite meal. This vegan minestrone soup is easy on the tummy and full of fiber, minus the bloat. I really think this resembles a mega healthy version of an Olive Garden Restaurant soup and brings me back to the days when I lived at home with my parents as a kid and we all ate around the table. Today, I get to do that same thing with my family of five and we absolutely love this soup.

The One Meal That Makes My Plant-Based Family Run To The Table

The ingredients truly make the dish. I know that sounds obvious, but the right combination of ingredients can mean all the difference in the world when making soup. This vegan minestrone soup is light, yet satisfying. The combination of flavors blend wonderfully and will remind you why all the hard work you did to make it at home really paid off. The prep time is simple…the hard part is the waiting while the amazing flavors blend and the aroma fills your house.
