This vegan soup is the absolute perfect cold weather dish for me! It’s so creamy and flavorful and packed full of vegetables. We love it topped with vegan Vienna sausages!
When I was growing up, this was one of my favorite soups that my mum made for us. She called it Bavarian Soup and I always thought it was a thing! But when I looked it up recently, searching for a soup with that name and similar ingredients, I couldn’t find anything. I can’t ask her anymore why she gave it that name since she passed away a few years ago but I still remember this soup well.
Her version wasn’t vegan. She used regular cream and turkey Vienna sausages. But I wanted to veganize her recipe or at least how I remember the soup to be. I was almost in happy tears when it tasted just the same. It’s been SO long that I laste ate it and it made me very emotional. Are there dishes that make you emotional?
One thing that I clearly remember is that she once showed me that she shredded part of the vegetables and chopped others. I guess she did this for different textures which is something that I really love about the soup. She also added onion but since my husband is allergic, I decided to omit it. And she never added the cream to the soup but instead, one could add as much as they wanted to their bowl of soup. I always added quite a lot cause I like it creamy.
Since my 5 year old and our oldest decided a few months ago to go fully vegetarian, I bought some vegan Vienna sausages. It was totally fascinating how close they actually came in taste and looks! The texture wasn’t quite the same but they were a worthy substitute. I hope you can get vegan Vienna sausages where you live too! Otherwise feel free to omit them or substitute them with other vegan sausages.
This soup is the absolute perfect cold weather dish for me. It’s so creamy and flavorful and packed full of vegetables. I truly love it and I hope you will make it for yourself or your family soon. It was a huge hit here and also with friends of ours who also got to eat some of it.
Will you make this soup soon? Or how about my Whole30 Zucchini, Pea & Spinach Soup?
