75+ Delicious Vegetarian Soups + Vegan Soups, Too!

THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. I MAY EARN FROM QUALIFYING PURCHASES.

I am not a vegetarian or a vegan but I enjoy all types of food and try to do at least one meatless day every week. If you’re looking to stretch your food dollar and create more meatless meals or plant-based meals, check out this list of over 75 delicious vegetarian soups.

You’ll find some creative and yummy vegan soups and vegan stews, as well. I’ve brought you the very best of the internet foodies on this one, y’all, so I hope you enjoy some warming soups as the temperatures dip.

75+ Delicious Vegetarian Soups + Vegan Soups, Too!

This is a really weird time for all of us. Things we took for granted, such as going to the store and being able to get all the ingredients on our list are not things we take for granted anymore. I think (I hope) things are getting better out there, but I also know that many home chefs like me have had to get creative, make substitutions and do without ingredients. If you’re wanting to experiment with some meatless meals, soups and stews are versatile and comforting and I think we can all use a little comforting right now.

How to use this list of Vegetarian Soups and Vegan Soups:

I’ve broken this list up into categories to make it easier to read. That said, some of these soups could go into more than one category, so expect to find soups made with beans in the hearty category or in the tomato based category. 


I have NOT broken them down into vegan and vegetarian. This list is about 70/30 with the majority of them being entirely plant based but there are a few that call for milk, cream, butter, and cheese. Each recipe (except for the ones I’ve personally created which are in bold type) will open up into a new tab. I recommend you pin recipes you are interested in to a specific Pinterest board, such as “Soup,” “Meatless Recipes,” “Vegetarian Soups” or whatever will serve your purpose. If you don’t have such a board, it is easy to create one. 

To make it easy on you, I’ve saved ALL these soups to my Vegetarian and Vegan Soup Pinterest board so you can just click HERE to follow that board.

Tomato Based Soups

The Best Instant Pot Tomato Soup EVER|Ripped Jeans and Bifocals

This is one of the recipe creations I am most proud of. Everyone in my family loves it and it is seriously restaurant quality – if I do say so myself. I keep meaning to try it with plant-based milk but I haven’t so far.

Read on for some more delicious tomato based soup options from some of my favorite food bloggers.

Hearty Vegetarian Soups and Stews (some vegan, too!)

There’s nothing like a bowl of hearty soup or stew to warm you up when it’s chilly outside. No matter what time of year it is, I just find a hearty, heavy bowl of soup that’s full of beans, potatoes, noodles or rice to be comforting. I hope you’ll enjoy trying some of these.

Soups Made with Pumpkin, Squash, or Sweet Potatoes

I love a squash or sweet potato based soup. The first two are my own and they’re family favorites. I’m excited to include some new favorite vegetarian soups from some of my favorite food bloggers.


Vegetarian Pumpkin and Black Bean Soup|Ripped Jeans and Bifocals

I have made this soup for years and I usually use chicken broth versus vegetable broth. That, of course, does not make it vegetarian but if you do east meat, this is an easy substiution.

Instant Pot Sweet Potato and Jalapeno Soup|Ripped Jeans and Bifocals

This is a soup inspired by Cafe Homestead in Waco Texas. The recipe as I’ve written it, does include bacon as a topping, however you can easily leave it off or use vegan bacon bits.

Vegan Pumpkin Soup|Nourish Plate

Soups with Beans and Lentils

Legumes are such a wonderful option for vegetarian soups or vegan soups. They add that texture, heartiness and protein that make a soup main dish worthy.

Instant Pot Minestrone|Ripped Jeans and Bifocals

This is another one of my creations that I’m proud of, mostly because everyone in my family loves it. I have that one picky kid, so anything that pleases everyone is a winner.

Other Delicious Favorites

Enjoy this hodgepodge of delish vegetarian soups from around the internet that I had trouble placing in the above categories for whatever reason. There’s pea soups, a few beet-based soups, carrot soups, and even a couple that I think are really unique like chestnut soup and mango soup. I hope you find some new favorites here in this section. 

P.S. I have to give a special call-out to Frog’s Breath Soup (see below.) If you’re a Nightmare Before Christmas fan, you’ll get the reference. Even if you’re not, give this one an open. Despite the unappetizing name, it actually sounds really yum.
