FAQs

1) Q: Can these soup recipes be made ahead of time?
A: Yes! In fact, many soup recipes actually taste better after they’ve had time to sit and develop their flavors. You can make large batches of soups and store leftovers in the fridge or freezer to enjoy throughout the week. To reheat, simply heat over low heat on the stove until heated through.

2) Q: How can I add protein to vegetarian soups?
A: There are plenty of ways to add protein to vegetarian soups! Try adding cooked beans (such as cannellini beans or chickpeas), tofu cubes, quinoa or lentils. Another option is to top your soup with nuts or seeds like almonds or pumpkin seeds. These will not only add a satisfying crunch but also some additional plant-based protein.

3) Q: Can I modify these soup recipes based on my dietary restrictions?
A: Of course! Many of the vegetable-based soups on AddM3 are already vegan and gluten-free by default. However, if you have other dietary restrictions such as nut allergies or soy intolerance, you can easily modify each recipe by omitting ingredients that don’t work for you and substituting them with others that do. Each recipe provides recommendations for substitutions when applicable.
