People hear ‘vegetable broth’ and think of soup.

And true, it does make a fantastic soup base. However, there’s so much more you can do with it. 

If you aren’t sure what, these 25 recipes with vegetable broth are here to help. I’ll bet you’ll find something that sounds good for dinner tonight! 

1. Cozy Autumn Wild Rice Soup

This creamy, brothy soup is earthy, savory, and so good. It’s the perfect comforting meal on a cool fall or winter’s night. 

It has plenty of veggies and herbs. Plus, the mushrooms add a wildness and warmth that’ll delight your taste buds. 

It takes about an hour to make and is perfect for enjoying with warm bread. 

2. Mediterranean White Bean Soup

This nutrient- and protein-packed vegan soup is a culinary masterpiece. It’s quick and easy to make and delightfully herby. 

It’s also gluten-free, low-calorie, and low-fat. You can’t go wrong with a meal like that.

3. Vegetable Pot Pie

Is anything more heartwarming than hot pot pie straight from the oven? If so, I haven’t found it yet. 

The buttery, melt-in-your-mouth crust. The thick, creamy sauce. The tender, flavorful veggies. Pot pie really does have it all. 

Stick to the recipe, or stuff it with your own favorite seasonal veggies. You can even add beef, turkey, or chicken if you like.

Either way, everyone is sure to love this recipe. 

4. Lemon Chickpea Orzo Soup

Looking for something brighter and zestier? Try lemon chickpea orzo soup. It’s still delicious, nutritious, and filling. However, it has a lighter, zingier taste.

Lemon, dill, and garlic may seem like an odd combination. However, trust me when I tell you they work very well together.

Add some orzo, veggies, and tahini, and you’re all set. 

5. Sweet Potato Soup

I adore the way this soup looks. It sounds like I’m being hyperbolic or overly dramatic, but I’m not.

Just look at the rich, vibrant color. And that lovely white swirl!

Have you ever seen a more beautiful soup? I enjoy serving this one whenever I have guests that I want to impress. It’s pretty much the whole package. 

It looks phenomenal, tastes fantastic, and even smells incredible. Serve it with your favorite fall salad or warm bread. Your guests will love it.

6. Vegetarian Pho

Vegetarian pho is earthy and has just the right amount of spice. It’s also vegetarian-friendly and ready to eat in less than an hour. 

Additionally, it’s so much fun to make and customize. For example, if you enjoy heat, you can add jalapenos, red pepper flakes, or cayenne.

Feel free to experiment with toppings and garnishes, too!

7. Roasted Carrot & Fennel Soup

Do you appreciate soups with a thick, creamy consistency?

If so, you’ll relish this one. It has a mild, vegetable-heavy flavor and is easy on the stomach.

So, give it a try if you want something warm, filling, and tasty.

8. Vegetable Barley Soup

Did your mom (or maybe grandma) ever make 100% homemade vegetable soup? 

You know, the kind with every fresh garden vegetable you could imagine. She’d spend all that time making it, then usually can the extra. 

This is that soup. 

If you want a blast-from-the-past, nostalgia-inducing soup, it’s this one.

This soothing, hearty soup won’t just warm your belly. It’ll also warm your heart, bones, and soul. 

Maybe love is the secret ingredient. maybe it’s not. Whatever the secret, this soup delivers on its promises.

9. Vegan One-Pot Creamy Garlic Parmesan Pasta

Mmmmmm… Tender, silky smooth noodles covered in garlic and parmesan. Doesn’t that sound phenomenal? That’s because it is. 

These creamy, saucy noodles are the best kind of pasta. They’re vegan-friendly and take less than half an hour to make. 

With a bit of tweaking, you can also make them mostly allergen-free. Best of all, they’ve got flavor in spades.

10. Creamy Pumpkin Pasta

Pumpkins and pasta are two words you don’t often hear used together. After trying this 30-minute meal, you’ll understand why you should.

This dish combines such strong, wonderful flavors. There’s pumpkin, sage, parmesan, walnuts, and more.

If you’re looking for a new fall favorite, you may have just found it. 

11. Mediterranean Couscous

Do you sometimes avoid couscous because it’s boring or bland? If so, this recipe will blow your mind because it’s neither of those things. 

This couscous is colorful, flavorful, and full of yummy stuff. 

It’s creamy but filled with chunks of tender shrimp, juicy tomatoes, and tangy feta. There’s also plenty of salty brininess from the olives and capers.

It’s a quick, nutritious meal that tastes entirely decadent. You’ll undoubtedly want to add it to your weekly rotation. 

12. Sweet Potato, Kale, and White Bean Soup

Do you love veggies? What about seasonings like rosemary, garlic, and red pepper flakes? Then you’ll go nuts for this vegan-friendly, gluten-free soup

It combines beans, sweet potatoes, kale, onions, peppers, and more. It packs a ton of flavor for such a simple, 25-minute meal. 

Each ingredient is bold, but they all complement each other flawlessly. It’s sure to become a fast fall favorite. 

13. One-Pot Chicken and Rice

This one-pot meal features succulent chicken, fluffy rice, and a plethora of seasonings.

You can make it in less than an hour, and clean-up is a breeze.

Pair it with a side of broccoli, and you’ll hit all the essential food groups. There’s protein, carbs, and veggies.

(Add cheese to the broccoli, and you have dairy, too!)

14. Vegan Thai Yellow Tofu Curry

Don’t you just love bright, vibrant food? I mean, yes, of course, food is all about the taste. However, there’s something to be said for presentation, too. 

Eating something that looks nice is more satisfying somehow. With eggplant, onions, carrots, and more, this one tastes as good as it looks. 

In other words, it’s satisfying in every possible way.

15. Crockpot Lentil Soup

It doesn’t get much chunkier or heartier than lentil soup. Every mouthful is packed with flavor and insanely filling. 

It’s an easy-to-make vegetarian soup that requires just 10 minutes of preparation. After that, you’ll add it to the Crockpot and let it do its thing.

Leave it to cook slowly all day. When you get home in the evening, it’ll be ready to go.

16. Sweet Potato Curry

Sweet potato curry is quick, creamy, and comforting. It’s spicy but not too hot, and it tastes better on day two.

Try it if you need a fast, 30-minute meal that you can enjoy for days.

17. Vegan Sloppy Joes

These scrumptious Sloppy Joes are filling and flavorful. You’ll make the “meat” with a mixture of lentils, water, and vegetable broth. 

The texture isn’t the same as real meat. However, after you cover the lentils in the homemade Sloppy Joe sauce, no one will mind. 

They’re saucy, smoky, and just a bit sweet. A single bite has more flavor than some entire meals.

Don’t be embarrassed if you lick your fingers (and the plate!) squeaky clean.

18. Three-Cheese Garlic Noodles

This recipe had me at “three cheese” and “garlic.” Hey! That’s one of my favorite combinations. 

These tender, buttery noodles are garlicky and insanely cheesy.

They boast mozzarella, parmesan, and fontina cheeses. And that heavy cream-based sauce can’t be denied.

If you have kids, be prepared to make this a lot because they’ll ask for it all the time.

19. Creamy Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Roasted cauliflower soup is mild but tasty, thick but luscious. It’s buttery, savory, and impossible not to love.

It takes a bit of time to make, but the process is incredibly simple.

You’ll need just ten ingredients (or fewer) and about 15 minutes of prep time. After that, it’s just a matter of stirring and blending. 

Plus, it’s low-calorie, low-fat, and relatively low-carb. What’s not to love?

20. Stuffed Acorn Squash

Want something new for the holidays this year? Try stuffed acorn squash. It’s fragrant, delectable, and unbelievably gorgeous.

It features all the best colors and flavors of fall. The orange squash. The red cranberries. The green splashes of various herbs and seasonings.

And did I mention there’s cinnamon and apples, too? 

Oh yes. Stuffed acorn squash is the Thanksgiving dish you never knew you needed.

Once you try it, though, you’ll never want to give it up again.

21. Red Lentil Pumpkin Soup

Here’s another soon-to-be new fall favorite. It’s gluten-free, vegan-friendly, and takes less than an hour to make.

It’s a filling, flavorful meal with a lovely, unique consistency. 

Go easy on the cayenne, though. Remember, a little always goes a long way when it comes to cayenne.

You can heat this soup up fast if you add too much.

22. Vegetarian Peanut Soup

Peanut soup might sound nuts (pun intended). 

However, if you enjoy spicy food, you must try it. It’s a classic West African dish. And it flawlessly combines tomato paste and peanut butter.

There are even some collard greens in the mix!

Again, I know how all of that sounds. But I promise you, there’s nothing else quite like it. Try it once, and you’ll be hooked.

23. Bulgur Salad

Whenever I see bulgur in something, I automatically think it’ll be dense and heavy. Indeed, this bulgur salad does appear dense. 

Surprisingly, though, it’s light, fresh, and so nutritious. All the bright, fresh, juicy veggies lighten the bulgur’s heaviness.

They make this 20-minute meal a delightful lunch option.

24. Minestrone Soup

Do you already enjoy minestrone from Olive Garden or a Campbell’s can? If so, just wait until you try making it from scratch. Your jaw will hit the floor.

You can never go wrong with this delicious, nutritious soup. However, making it from scratch takes it to a new level of yumminess. 

Give it a try with this recipe. You won’t regret it.

25. Portobello Vegan Beef(less) Stew

Anyone glancing into this bowl won’t be able to tell it’s meatless. It’s the beefiest vegan beef stew you’ll ever see. 

It’s the chunks of portobellos that make all the difference.

Add those to the thick broth and tender veggies, and you have beef stew. It may not have any meat, but it’s 100% authentic beef stew.

Or at least it’ll taste that way. People may notice a difference in the texture, but the taste is spot-on.

Try it for yourself on a cold night. It’ll warm you right up!
