Puree the soup in batches using a blender.

Make Vegan Creamy Green Soup Your Own

Once you make this soup you will be making it again here are some suggestions to change up the ingredients for a thicker soup.

What ingredients can you add? Adding any type of canned white beans before placing the soup in the blender will give you a thicker and creamier texture. Not to mention the added benefits of the protein from the beans.

You can also add extra zucchini to make the soup creamier without the added calories.

What ingredients can you replace? Replace coconut milk for the fuller-bodied benefits of coconut cream.

What Kind of Soup Is Vegan?

Vegan soup is one that follows the veganism beliefs which include not consuming meat or dairy products.

Can I Substitute Arugula for Spinach in Soup?

If you do not have any spinach on hand you can absolutely substitute arugula for the spinach in a soup recipe.

As we know spinach pretty much has no overpowering flavor whereas arugula has that wonderful fresh pepper flavor.

When I buy spinach and arugula leaves I buy the packet with both. I use them in salads, soups, and green smoothies.

Which Canned Soups Are Vegan?

There are many brands that claim to be 100% Vegan.

Take it from me do not trust the label on the front of the packaging and always read the ingredients. 

If you still find this confusing you can use a scanning ingredient application that is designed specifically for Vegans.

I use this one “abillionveg” available to download in your App Store.

Here are some of the brands and flavors of Vegan soup I found.
