Preview Photos From My Low Fat Vegan Comfort Soups To Keep You Warm Recipe Ebook

by on March 18, 2012


I’m REALLY excited about my new Comfort Soups To Keep You Warm recipe eBook. It’s actually going to be part of a series of many recipe eBooks (each containing 30+ recipes, tips and how to’s) later on.

Low Fat Vegan Oil Free Comfort Soups To Keep You Warm

I’ve spent over 3 months working on these recipes, testing them, making them for family and friends, photographing them and putting together this eBook. It’s a lot of work really. I had no idea just how much until now!

So while you may have thought I was just doing a few recipes here and there (which you’ve seen on my blog), I have actually been secretly hiding all of my BEST recipes on my computer!

You may have noticed there’s not a lot of low fat vegan soup recipes on my blog so far, but we’ve actually been eating oil free vegan soups almost every day for months!

I feel like I have actually perfected the art of designing and seasoning oil free vegan soups. From making my own oil-free homemade vegetable broth and fresh cooked beans to putting them together in soups that are 100% healthy AND delicious.

I’ve even tested them out on my parent’s omnivorous friends and they wouldn’t have realized they were oil-free or vegan, until I told them! All they wanted to know was where can they get more, and like right now!

I know you are going to love these soup recipes, there’s something for everyone and I took inspiration from cultures all over the world, including our world trip we did Β a year and a half ago.

Most of these vegan soup recipes are naturally gluten free, or gluten-free friendly, nut-free friendly and most of them are soy-free as well.

Let’s take a look at my delicious soup recipes now:

This is just a sample of all the soups in the book, there are a few more, including 2 vegetable broth recipes and some bonus recipes you can use for sides and garnishes for the soups!

I have to say, it’s VERY difficult for me to choose a top favourite of all of these soups. I would eat them all again and again! After traveling all over the world, including Canada and the USA I can say that these recipes are MUCH MUCH better than the vegan soup offerings currently available at most restaurants. Most of the time their vegetable soups are rather watery and bland and need more seasonings and vegetables!

My soups are packed full of both vegetables and flavour that you will want to make these soups regularly as well. And who doesn’t love one pot meals with few dishes to clean up? I know I do!

Veronica,

How do I order your book (not Ebook) for Low Fat Vegan Comfort Soup To Keep You Warm? I love you weekly recipes and have tried several of them with much success from my family so I am so anxious to have your Low Fat Vegan Comfort Soup book. I hope this is possible.

I’d love to prepare and taste the Creamy Potato Corn Chowder and Cream of Broccoli Soup. I love cooking all sorts of vegan and oil free soups and stews. I would also like to purchase the book if I’m not the winner as I do all the cooking in our home.
Thanks kindly,

just 2? how to choose they all look so yummy! I guess 1st I’d have to pick the Just-Like “Chicken” Noodle Soup and then the Vietnamese Vegan Pho (Noodle Soup). the just like chicken noodle soup because I’d like to introduce vegan meals to my nieces and nephew and think this is one they’d be willing to try. then the Vietnamese Vegan Pho Noodle soup looks so devine… and I think since my hubby LOVES Asian food and veges so I’m pretty sure it a meal we can enjoy together. Plus I need to get more vegetables in my diet & it looks like a good start.

Hi Veronica,
I love the look of all your soups and want to try everyone even if I have made similar ones in the past. The two I like the most to try are Vietnamese Vegan Pho (Noodle soup) and Thai Pumpkin soup. You can’t swing a cat without hitting a Vietnamese Restaurant in the bay area (San Francisco, CA), but I have to walk away as they never have any items without meat generally speaking. It would be so wonderful for me to try this PHO soup and feel like I’ve actually tasted something Vietnamese. As for Thai Pumpkin Soup, I love many items on the menu at Thai restaurants but their soups and some dishes never quite make the mark. I love the green curry flavors of Thai food and pumpkin, plus everything vegetable. I am just a big lover of soup and could eat it everyday. Having your cookbook will help me have a different soup every day!!! Good luck on your marketing. Can’t wait to see it in the bookstores and thank you so much for doing a cookbook like this. thank you thank you thank you, rosalie.

What amazing recipes. I’d have to start with theVegan Vietnamese Pho, as it reminds me of one we used to enjoy in Des Moines many years ago. I was recently online looking for such a recipe and here you are! Is there information on how to order this ebook? I’m so glad to have found you.

Well, I had high hopes, and then…they were surpassed. Everyone of of them looked good. Nah, positively mouthwatering! I really looked closely at the Mexican Black Bean Corn Soup, and then The Kale White Bean Soup, the Tuscan Roasted Tomato Chickpea Soup, the …. – I’m sure you get my drift. It was somewhat impossible to choose a favourite as each one looked so yummy. It looks as if most of the ingredients will be available here in the UK. As it is always rather damp here a warming soup as the evening meal is just “the ticket”. Being physically disabled, I learned the value of eating raw and wholesome. However, one does get a little bored, and a fresh lot of tasty recipes are just what is needed. Truthfully, I would love to win. Chances are anyone’s guess. However, I honestly think we are already winners as we are the lucky ones to be on your “radar”.

Wow, Veronica,
it is really, really hard to choose the 2 I would like to try the most… everything looks amazing!
But, if I would really have to choose, here is what I would pick: Tuscan Roasted Tomato Chickpea Soup and Thai Pumpkin soup.
I would love to delight my family with these amazing soups, especially since we are eating low-fat vegan and those are the flavors we love the most.
Congrats on this great project!

I would love to try the yam chickpea cabbage soup. These are three of my favorite things. Also the just like chicken noodle soup sounds comforting for a day when you are feeling down with a cold or just cold weather. I might just get my husband to eat some low -fat vegan with these recipes. He loves flavorful soups.

Reply

11 Dolores March 20, 2012 at 12:15 PM

I am very interested in the Mexican Black Bean Corn Soup just for some “south of the border” flavor. Also the Moroccan Chickpea Soup sounds like it might have some “zip” to it with flavor to it. After reading your husband’s book “Controversies” and how he yearned for some substantial food, I understand what he meant. Juices and smoothies are fantastic, but then you want something with “meat” or substance, your soups look like they might do the trick. The Tuscan Roasted Tomato Chickpea Soup also sounds like it would have some real flavor. I need the juices and smoothies for my situation, but I really yearn for something that tastes good! (not just vegetablish).
You both have contributed a lot to the world!!
Glad that you had the courage to do all this.

WOW!!! What an array of delicious looking soups you will have in your new book. It was quite a task to pick out several as you asked. Here are three I would very much enJOY! The first is Tuscan Roasted Tomato Chickpea, then, Yam Chickpea Cabbage, with Kale White Bean coming in third.
I would have loved being one of those who got to sample the soups as you were putting them together. If you choose my name, I’ll get to enJOY A L L of them.

Wow, your soup recipes look enticing. I am so glad you created a cooked food recipe book as well as your raw food recipe book. Thank you! The gourmet cream of mushroom and the yam chickpea cabbage soup look like the first soups that I would like
to try because mushrooms are my special treat and the other one has ingredients I almost always have on hand.

The “Just like Chicken noodle soup” looks so great! I would love to try that one cuz it reminds me of when I was a little girl, also the “Chinese noodle soup” looks so authentic and reminds me when I was in Hong Kong! Would love to give that one a go for sure!
Thanks Veronica!!

Experiencing technical difficulties with your site… Broccoli soup because I have yet to meet a raw vegan broccoli soup that is authentic and cheesy-ish. “Chicken” Noodle soup because although I have never been a fan of chicken, I appreciated the family sentiment of making chicken noodle soup with noodles and vegetables for me when I was feeling down. My Aunt Dot has a way of nurturing you with her food, if only I could get her to make it raw vegan….

So excited for your potato chowder and chicken noodle soup recipes because it looks like the kind of vegan recipe my mom would try for my little siblings. My siblings–a thirteen year old boy and fifteen year old girl–just completed their first day of a week vegan challenge (their idea!) after I have been vegan a year. My brother even proposed a week of low fat raw vegan like I am now, but I thought that might be way too radical a jump all at once. So I will be helping them this week to make easy vegan snacks and lunches (lots of fruit for breakfast!), and my mom is being a dear to try new vegan dinners. Your soup recipes would be perfect for them because we live in chilly Michigan (which, I’m sure you understand, living part time in Canada!). Not to mention my newly wed sister who is slowly looking into vegan recipes herself (I’m so blessed to have such a large and open-minded family; there are 8 of us–a lot for me to influence!)

Thank you, Veronica

Hi Veronica,

Thank you so so much for creating this low fat vegan soup book. The pictures look delicious and tempting. I would love to make the Mexican black bean soup and the Greek fasolada soup. They look like complete meals and would taste so unique. Truly it is hard to pick just two. I am dying to get this book so that I can run away from all the same stereotype soups that I have been making. I am hoping to replace my rice and bean lunch with some of your bean soups. With your style, I am sure you would make preparation of these soups as easy as it could be. I am also excited that you have included the different tastes around the world. So best of luck and thank you, for taking this effort for all your readers.

Bravo Veronica for your book on comfort soups. I look at all the photographs and the soup that appealled me strongly was the Split Pea Carrot Yam Soup. That is the one I would try at first. I know for sure that the texture of cooked yam is creamy and I love its taste. I read also that yam is a preferred choice over the potato, because it is packed with minerals and vitamins.

Your hard work must have brought you joy and the result is there… see how many are giving their comments here. Not only the photos gives us the “coup de pouce” to try them, but I must add that I would not have made a better choice for the cover of your book : I LOVE IT !

Living in the southwest-the mexican black bean corn soup and the tuscan roasted tomato chickpea soup and today they all look very good since we have had a winter storm blow through the Arizona southwest and it is just too cold today. Really like black beans and pinto beans. Could you substitute the black beans for pinto beans or also add them in with the black beans??

Reply

59 Veronica March 19, 2012 at 3:58 PM

You could add some pinto beans to the black beans if you like. I don’t know that I would like the taste of pinto beans instead of black beans as it may taste more like refried beans and pinto beans can be more pasty and dry. If using fresh cooked it would turn out better than canned though.

Right off hand, the gourmet cream of mushroom and the roasted garlic cauliflower look yummy. But, so is the cream of asparagus soup and the potato mushroom leek.

All of these soups look so delicious that I really had a hard time picking one or two favorites. But finally my personal winners are Cream of Artichoke Soup and Gourmet Cream of Mushroom Soup. I love the texture of such creamy soups and I love mushrooms. When it comes to artichokes they are not very widespread here in Germany, where I live. Most people don’t even know how they taste and what to use them for in their meals. This is why I only enjoy them on rare occasions although I really love them. This soup therefore is a great opportunity to feast on them once again…

Reply

69 Veronica March 19, 2012 at 2:54 PM

Are you able to get frozen artichoke hearts, or canned artichokes (in water, not oil)? I have been to Berlin and Munich, but at the time was not looking for Artichokes, so I cannot say where to get them. They are new to me recently, but I really like the flavour. Very distinct like asparagus is. πŸ™‚

There are LOTS and lots of instructions, tips and what not to do’s in this book. I am making it for everyone, including those who have never stepped foot into a kitchen so everyone will be able to learn how to start cooking from scratch including soups. And then it has instructions for those wanting to cook their own broth and dried beans from scratch so they can graduate into cooking even more from scratch recipes.

Hi Veronica,
I have been absolutely amazed by your recipes.
There is so much variety & these soups are no exception.
I think that I’d like to try the Split pea, Carrot & Yam +
Chinese Vegetables.
They would definitely keep me warm here in the UK.

I’m interested in the Tuscan Roasted Tomato Chickpea Soup and the Thai Pumpkin Soup.

Pumpkin soup is divine and with the extra thai flavours, just gorgeous. A good vegan recipe of this wonderful soup? Can’t wait.

And you can’t go past a good classic tomato soup recipe. With the chickpeas, a filling winter wamer. Yum

Congrats on getting your book done!

My first reaction was that I wanted to try the Mexican Black Bean soup… probably because it’s the very first one! Then all the rest of the photos looked equally amazing and delicious. Great job! I like that the mexican soup looks so hearty, like chili. My second favorite soup (if I HAD to choose just one) would be the last one, the cream of broccoli. I’ve never been able to make a vegan version that delighted me as much as the original (which has always been one of my favorite soups)… but I have full faith after trying some of your other recipes over the past few weeks, that yours will be amazing. Can’t wait to try these! Thanks for the opportunity to win πŸ™‚

Tuscan Roasted Tomato Chickpea Soup and Kale White Bean Soup are the two I’m most excited about, although there are so many that excite me because I love soups in the winter time and I’m always looking for more recipes. The reason I’m especially interested in the two above is because I’m always looking for something different to do with my beans. I have one or two basic recipes for each type of bean and I’m looking for some variety. Can’t wait to try these! Thanks so much!

At present they like only smooth soups but they will try things with noodles in them. Then I’ll see what else I can get them to try. I’m looking forward to trying them all!

… the two recipes that I would love to try are: Thai Pumpkin Soup and Curried Carrot Leek Soup. I love the earthiness of pumpkin and paring it with the flavours from Thailand should be taste bud heaven. Carrot and Leek, more favourites of mine with a subtle curry, can only be wonderful!

My mouth is watering looking at your photos of these beautiful soups. I love tomato soup and my husband’s favorite is cream of mushroom. That is why I have chosen the
Tuscan tomato chickpea and cream of mushroom soups.
I am currently on a juice feast so I would have to wait a little while to try a soup but my husband is a meat and potatoes type guy. I am trying to get him to eat healthy. I think that the cream of mushroom soup would do the trick. If I could show him that it is possible for food to taste good and be healthy he just might try it. I knowi will.

112 Marina March 19, 2012 at 5:35 PM

Hello Veronica!

First thing first, all of these soups look ABS amazing!
Thanks to Kevin and AnnMarie Gianni, I was introduced to your husband’s website which I couldn’t ‘put down’ (so to speak). Almost immediately, I ordered “Raw Food Controversies” via Kindle (hard copy would take forever to reach me considering that I’m in Eastern Europe) and read it w/in a couple of days. Never before have I thought of going on 80/10/10 and ever since I’ve incorporated it, my health and my mood have soared.
But finding great recipes (w/ ingredients that I can purchase around here) has been a bit of challenge. Since I L.O.V.E. every recipe that features mushrooms and chickpeas, it was really hard to make my top 2 but they are ‘gourmet cream of mushrooms soup’ & ‘Moroccan chickpea soup’. Usually, creamy soups of any kind usually feature tons of nuts, so I’m super curious how you came up w/ low fat recipe. And one of the countries that I’d abs love to visit in my lifetime is Morocco, hence the soup would be a great introduction to such a vibrant culture and cuisine but w/ much healthier approach.
It’d be forever grateful if you pick me as a winner cause I could make these recipes not only for myself but for my meat-and-potatoes-is-the-perfect-diet friends, coworkers, etc. who always give me strange looks and overwhelm me w/ questions regarding my meals (which has only made me eat either before everyone or after everyone’s finished) and show them that my eating approach can feature delicious soups, too.

Best regards,
Marina

I am looking forward to the mushroom recipes. I have not been able to create a good mushroom soup on my own even though I’m a pretty decent cook. So that would be Potato Mushroom Leek and Gourmet Cream of Mushroom. They all look amazing! I am doing an organic farming apprenticeship at the moment up in Pemberton and am always looking for local recipe inspiration for our customers. Last year we grew 80 different kinds of food and herbs. Maybe you could create a “local” recipe for us!

118 Cynthia Colby March 19, 2012 at 4:53 PM

For me it would be the Vegetable Bean Barley soup. The colours are so enticing I find myself looking around on my desk for a spoon! The mix of vegetables look succulent and they seem to be bursting with flavour. I LOVE barley – grew up with it – and yearn for that soft yet firmish texture when you chomp down on those little nodules. And the beans – oh the beans! Tender and firmly mushy and flavourful. When I think of all of those flavours and textures combining with a lovely broth, I want to stick my spoon right into my screen and eat it right off your website! I am definitely a soup person. I can’t WAIT to get a copy of your book.
How well do these soups freeze, as I like to make a huge potful then freeze single servings for convenience?

Reply

119 Veronica March 19, 2012 at 6:07 PM

Hi Cynthia, I would say all of them except the noodle ones would freeze really well. My mom is currently remaking all of these soups for herself for lunch and freezes portions for leftovers so she has a variety to choose from whenever she wants a healthy lunch.

Just defrost in the fridge and reheat or microwave and it will be fine. Also if you’re making a batch JUST to freeze you could undercook the veggies a little so they are more al dente and then they won’t be overcooked when you reheat.

How come you don’t have Indonesian soup in the ebook? πŸ˜€ Try sayur asem, it’s my favorite soup. Some people add non-vegan broth into it, but I always omit it and it still tastes great. Anyway, I love soups but most of the online recipes I find are hard to follow, either because: I don’t know the ingredient’s translation (seriously, someone need to invent cooking dictionary / translator program. Either that, or post the picture of the ingredients), the ingredients are hard to find locally (I never find Kale here. I’ve always thought it’s translated to Kangkung, but when I google the picture it turns out it isn’t haha), or I find it pale in comparison to local rich-flavored soups. But all your soup pics are yummy looking! I’d love to try Mexican black bean corn soup (hm.. btw what is a black bean and where do I find it? lol).

I want to make tasty soups for my family, but my other problem in finding the right taste is because they’re so used to MSG. Some people I know substitute it with salt and sugar, but I’m not satisfied with it, and a bit wary because I don’t like to use too much salt or sugar. When I ask my hubby to taste the soup I make, he always says “this needs more salt”, while it tastes fine with me (maybe because vegans have different taste buds?). Um, sorry for the ramblings! πŸ˜€

Reply

135 Veronica March 19, 2012 at 3:17 AM

I’ve never had Indonesian soup before. I’ve only been to Bali and have not had much Balinese food that was vegan nor any Indonesian food. Black beans are small oval shaped beans. They are very common in North America. If you google it you will see what they look like. Sorry I can’t help you with translations.

We also don’t use mag, it is much more harmful to health than salt. If you balance food with sweet salty tangy and spicy it will taste right. You can’t just add only salt or sugar to a recipe. You have to add some of both and add something tangy like lemon lime tamarind a little vinegar etc

I am MOST excited about the Potato Mushroom Leak soup – who wouldn’t be? Yum – 3 of my absolute favorites! But I actually want your recipe book for my dad – who would lean more towards the Vegetable Bean Barley Soup! He started eating lowfat vegan when his cardiologist told him ‘You better do something about your problem – because we’ve done all we can.’ – and so it went! I followed suit to be supportive, and then actually fell in love with it and haven’t looked back. I like to explore in my eating and am constantly trying new things…but my dad – cooks soup almost EVERY DAY! It’s his favorite thing and your book is PEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFEEEEEEECCCCCTTTTTTTTT!!! EXACTLY what he needs! I’m sooo excited!
