Pea soup may tout a vegetable as its main ingredient, yet it isn't a vegan recipe by default. Fortunately, the chefs over at All Recipes put together a hearty vegan version of this perennial favorite soup. Like traditional recipes, this one boasts quite a few delicious veggies and herbs, including barley, garlic, bay leaf, onion, potatoes, basil and carrots. However, All Recipes swaps chicken broth for water — flavored with veggie oil, pepper and herbs. Even though it’s meatless, this vegan-friendly soup remains hearty — and even thicker than traditional pea soups — thanks to the veggie mash.
When it comes to serving this dish, using porcelain bowls is the best route to go to avoid overheating plastic dishes and burning your hands. These Sweese porcelain bowls will make a great addition to your cookware, especially if you’re someone who regularly enjoys soup. While the handles are really the selling point here, these bowls are also fridge-, freezer- and microwave-safe, which makes keeping and reheating leftovers a cinch.
