1. Vegan Potato Soup

With the right toppings, this soup tastes just like a baked potato. 

Seriously, add a sprinkle of vegan cheese, some crumbled tempeh bacon, and a handful of chives. See, I told you! 

It’s amazingly thick and creamy for having no dairy. Plus, it’s low in fat. Use an immersion blender and it’s even more creamy.

2. Vegan Chicken Noodle Soup 

It’s incredible how this vegan soup achieves the same flavors as the classic without real chicken. 

It has all the staples including pasta, carrots, celery, onions, and dried herbs. But instead of chicken, it calls for Tofurky chicken and veggie broth. 

Drop the noodles in right before serving and slurp until your heart’s content.
