Sweet Potato and Carrot Soup
This vegan sweet potato and carrot soup is packed with nutrients, really simple to make and an ideal winter warmer. You’ll need plenty of red onion, garlic and fresh ginger for this one. Save yourself some time and make big batches so you can keep in the freezer for lazy, cozy nights at home.
As we’re approaching the colder months, we feel like we could eat soup every day. A bowl of warming soup is simply the best comfort food on a cold day, isn’t it?! We first made this vegan sweet potato and carrot soup a few years ago, when we transitioned to a vegan diet. Soups are great for vegan beginners, because they require minimal effort and make it easy to combine essential nutrients. Nourishing and delicious – to this day this soup remains one of our absolute favourites.
Can I freeze this soup?
Absolutely! Frozen soups can be a lifesaver on busy days when you don’t have the time to prepare meals. Make sure to let the soup cool completely before pouring it into a freezer safe container or bag. Also don’t fill your container all the way full! Liquid expands when you freeze it so leave a few inches/centimeter of space.
Tip: If you’re freezing more than one soup, label it with the name of the soup so you don’t forget which one is which. Soups will last in the freezer for up to three months.
Is this soup gluten-free?
Yes, this vegan sweet potato and carrot soup is gluten-free. Just double check that the vegetable stock you’re using is gluten-free.
