This vegan lasagna soup recipe is a creamy, healthy lunch recipe – perfectly cozy for chilly nights! Loaded with spinach, peas, carrots, tomatoes, and thick hearty lasagna noodles.
When you don’t have the time (or the cheese) to make a full lasagna – this easy soup recipe satisfies the craving in a fraction of the time. This soup is perfect for these cold winter nights when you want to curl up and tuck into some comfort food without the guilt.
I love all things pasta, and lasagna is a recipe for what I like to call “special occasion cooking” where the dish takes an extraordinary amount of time and effort to pull together. NOT this soup, it couldn’t be easier. You get all the flavors of a lasagna (and the fun texture of the noodles) without really any of the work.
‘Traditional’ vegan lasagnas can be tricky to make anyways – with layers of fake cheese that don’t really melt, blended tofu fillings, layered veggies which take tons of time to chop just right… skip all of that and make this soup instead.
This Vegan Lasagna Soup Recipe Is:
- Easier than Making a Full Lasagna
- Great to Meal Prep
- Vegan, Vegetarian, Meatless, and Dairy Free!
How to Add Pasta to Soups
For most of my recipes, I cook the pasta separately from the soup broth. If you add dried or cooked pasta directly to a hot soup, you run the risk of having the dried pasta soak up all the broth and overcook the noodles (turning it soup into a mushy mess).
I’ve found that cooking the pasta separately, then serving the broth over the noodles in a bowl works best. I allow the soup to cool, then add the cooked pasta after. That way you’ll have perfectly cooked pasta that holds it shape and a delicious brothy soup.
What’s In Vegan Lasagna Soup?
I get all the fresh produce for my recipes from my garden and from Misfits Market – they sell all organic produce at a super discounted price, and it’s purchased direct from the farmers. We get Misfit Market boxes every month and love picking out our favorite seasonal produce for delivery. You can get $10 off your first $30 box by clicking here!
If you think organic produce is too expensive… think again, and give Misfits Market a look!
- Olive Oil: I like to use this delicious Zoe olive oil which has a fantastic flavor and deep color- it’s really inexpensive online here, so I keep a few liters stocked up in my pantry. For the quality of oil you get, it’s an excellent value, I would highly recommend!
- Diced Tomatoes: I only use no salt added diced tomatoes, these boxed tomatoes are really great to stock up on! I like boxed tomatoes better because they are BPA free and more eco-friendly than aluminum cans.
- Italian Seasoning Blend: usually has thyme, basil, rosemary, parsley, etc. I love this bright and flavorful Italian season mix which brings this amazing dish to life.
- Reduced Sodium Vegetable Stock or Bouillon: I love this Better than Bouillon Vegetable Base for my recipes because it has a great flavor and is lower in sodium. I only develop my recipes with low sodium ingredients so the ingredients shine.
- TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein): I love stocking my pantry with TVP! TVP is made from soy protein and has the exact same texture as ground beef… making it really versatile to use in place of real meat. We use TVP in soups and stews, for taco filling, and in lasagnas.
- Lasagna Noodles, use gluten free if you avoid wheat
- Salt and Pepper
- Frozen Peas
- Fresh Basil
- This recipe is vegan and vegetarian, and does not contain meat – it’s also dairy free!
- This recipe can be gluten free if you use gluten free lasagna noodles. Also make sure to double check any spices or spice blends you are using, just in case there is gluten in any of the ingredients.
