I look on the Internet for vegan soups I can freeze and all I get is how I can make a soup with bacon and so forth. I have been eating a lot of can soups and now my cholesterol is 240 so I need to make a vegan soup I can freeze any suggestions?

Hi lostsoul65. Most soups freeze really well, except the ones with potatoes, the freezing changes the texture and they taste kind of mealy. Split pea soup is just about always in my freezer, as is lentil. With my soups, I don't really follow a recipe, it depends what I have in the kitchen smiley.gif

This site looks like it has some good soups and freezing tips. http://vegangela.com/tag/freezer-friendly/
Good luck! smiley.gif

Thank you, No potatoes, lentil and spilt peas, so I will go to the store tomorrow and buy a bunch of veggies and experiment. I have a problem with seasoning, and I guess I should put a little virgin oil in it to.

If you're in the US, in the spice aisle is a product called Mrs Dash, which is a mix of spices, salt-free. There are lots of different flavors. Grab one of those that look good, a yellow onion, a bag of split peas or lentils, and any combination of carrots, celery, tomato, depending on what is a good price and what looks good. The leaves of celery are divine in most soups. Or use a bag of mixed frozen veggies (not broccoli or cauliflower though, too strong-tasting). You'll need some salt too. Some bags of split peas come with a vegan flavor packet called "ham flavoring" and that makes it really easy, you can skip the mrs dash and salt if it's that kind. Before you cook the soup, chop up the onion in biggish pieces and cook it in a little oil for a few minutes, then add the other ingredients and water. Have fun whatever you cook! Put joy in the food while cooking it, and just laugh off any failures, it's not life or death. Cooking vegan can be really fun, quick, and easy.

I've frozen soups with potato and think they're fine. I wonder if it's the type makes a difference? I've been using more of the round white and red ones instead of the russet. 

One thing I like to do with soup is chop some of the veggies really fine so they cook down and season it more- like the celery, and onions, and grating some potato will thicken it.

 

Wait Led... some of that "ham" seasoning I should check? I will!

 

Canned soups are pretty awful, but if you want something to keep on hand check out Tabatchnick soups, many are vegan-- they're frozen.


Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good
