No matter the season, soup remains a staple dish in everyone’s home. Hearty vegan soups are a great meal option for vegans because they can be easily made with plant-based ingredients. Soups are a great way to cook vegetables and other hearty ingredients like lentils, beans, and even potatoes.
However, there are a number of non-vegan soup recipes that need to be updated with more plant-based substitutes. One of these classics is cream of chicken and wild rice. For vegans, a simple substitute is mushroom and wild rice. This soup is perfect for cozy nights or lunch on a chilly winter day.
