If you are looking for a wholesome soup that will warm you up on these cold winter days, we have you covered. This hearty vegan vegetable pasta soup is the perfect soup packed with hearty vegetables, pasta and a touch of spice to warm you right up.
When we planted our garden this year , we made sure we could pack our freezer with hearty vegetables like carrots and green beans. These vegetables freeze nicely and can be added to soups and stews all winter long. This hearty vegetable soup is a good way to make sure your family is eating a healthy and wholesome meal. This soup also reheats well and is perfect for a quick lunch the next day.
These vegetables can be prepped earlier in the week when using fresh and taken out of the freezer shortly before making the soup. I make this on cold days when I want a quick and easy meal that my family loves.
This hearty vegan vegetable pasta soup can be made on the stove or an instant pot. Making this in an instant pot makes this really quick and easy and making this on the stove is a nice way to let the smells fill your kitchen on a light simmer. Its the perfect soup!
