So i made the pumpkin apple soup tonight. It kind of tasted like curried pumpkin, it was ok. not super spectacular.. And i followed the recipe & pureed the soup but during dinner I decided texture of pureed soup isn't to my liking.

Does anyone have recommendations for which recipes are super yummy? Or which ones i should avoid?

I like Vegan Soups for all Seasons, though I usually add a bit more spice/flavourings than the recipe calls for. This is likely more of a personal taste thing.


Nava’s soups/stews I make most often:


Alphabet Vegetable Soup

Country Captain Stew
http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m ... 4593/pg_2/

Curried Cashew-Vegetable Soup (but I only use ½ cup cashew butter for a thinner broth)
http://vegkitchen.com/recipes/spring-soups.htm

Greek-Flavored Spinach and Orzo Soup
http://vegkitchen.com/recipes/spring-soups.htm

Miso–Butternut Squash Soup

Nearly Instant Thai Coconut Corn Soup

New England Clam-less Chowder

Provencal Bean Pot

Another good soup cookbook to check out is A Beautiful Bowl of Soup: The Best Vegetarian Recipes by Paulette Mitchell. Great flavour combinations and garnishes to make your soup look even more wonderful.

eg.

Granny Smith Apple And Yam Soup With Glazed Pecans

Polynesian Peanut Soup With Toasted Coconut

Thanks for this list! I'll check some of them out definitely. It's a place to start from.

I did add more spice to the soup but i'm i couldn't get past the pureed textured. After that it was pretty much an uphill battle for me.

That Clam-Less chowder is so incredibly good. I add more spices, too. I also use hickory smoked tofu instead of regular (total brain fart on the brand), and double the amount.

What about the mac and cheese soup? I'm going to make it next week, but if there are any recommendations/suggestions that will be great. Thanks!

I love this cookbook and have been using it more frequently now that the cooler weather has arrived. My favorites are the Moroccan Style Vegetable Stew (p.33), Country Captain Stew (p. 96), and the Vegetarian Goulash (p. 76). I also find myself adding more spices than the recipes called for at times.

I have the original Vegetarian Soups for all Seasons that Nava put out years ago. I'm not sure how similar the two are, but the Four-Grain Tomato Soup in the veg book is one of my staples. It is so good, especially if you use lots of dill. I would think that soup would be a crossover recipe because it is already vegan.
