Veggie Vegetarian Chili

Rating: 4.5 stars 312
Delicious chili with tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, peppers, carrots, corn, and several kinds of beans. Great as a snack or as a whole meal. Can feed an army or keep for days. Serve with a sprinkling of cheese. You may also add a 12 ounce package of vegetarian burger crumbles after the ingredients come to a boil.

Tomato-Curry Lentil Stew

Rating: 4.5 stars 270
I discovered this one day while trying to use up some leftover canned tomatoes and celery. You could probably double, triple, etc. the ingredients and brew up a whole pot of this. Feel free to use fresh tomatoes too, if you like.

Rutabaga Stew

Rating: 4.5 stars 13
My mom has been making the stew for many years and it is by far the BEST stew I have ever tasted. It is hearty, filling, and inexpensive not to mention extremely delicious and fairly easy to make. The hardest part and the most time-consuming part for this stew is preparing the vegetables. I chop and dice all my vegetables by hand and so it can consume a little bit more time, but it is very much worth the extra time it takes. Pork, beef, or venison are all good in this recipe, too.

Trinidadian Callaloo Soup

Rating: 4 stars 2
This is made with callaloo leaves in the West Indies, but in Canada we often have to use spinach leaves, which is just as tasty.

Zucchini Soup

Rating: 3.5 stars 14
My boyfriend typically does not like zucchini but loved this soup. Gluten free, nightshade free, dairy free.

Roasted and Curried Butternut Squash Soup

Rating: 4 stars 217
This is my original recipe and can be either vegetarian or meat based. It also freezes well - just thaw, heat and add cream or yoghurt before serving. It's delicious and well worth the extra steps of roasting and pureeing. Enjoy!

A recipe given to me by a friend that is a great green color and smooth, rich texture. Comfort food! Freezes well.

Sunset Soup

Rating: 4.5 stars 11
Hearty and healthy root vegetable soup.

World's Greatest Vegetable Broth

Rating: 4.5 stars 130
This makes a broth that is slightly thick with a rich color and full flavor. The broth can be frozen in one or one and a half cup blocks for later use. This recipe also leaves you with a bowl full of delicious cooked vegetables, I love to snack on them cold.

Bone Broth

Rating: 4.5 stars 19
After bout upon bout of sickness with the start of the school year, a friend showed me her bone broth recipe. This is a great way to use up old chicken, pork, or beef bones (or just go buy some fresh!) that adds tons of amazing nutrients and amino acids to your diet! 10 minutes of prep, a day of your house smelling like a roast, and you have a fantastic, versatile base for soups, stews, and so much more!

Split Pea Soup without Pork

Rating: 4.5 stars 85
To make a delicious Pea Soup without all the fat simply substitute chicken stock for most of the liquid in your favorite recipe! The soup will cook down and be flavorful, though mild in taste. My family loves this substitute!

Broccoli Soup

Rating: 4.5 stars 418
My friend's wife introduced me to this recipe. I HATE broccoli, but loved this soup. I ate every drop. It's simple and good!
