Happy New Year! Are you eager, worn out, hung-over, excited, or ready for summer?

Maybe, you’re cold and looking to warm up with a soothing bowl of soup? Or maybe you’re fighting off a bit of a cold from the holiday excitement?

Yes to all of the above.

Here are the top 10 soup recipes of the year according to you. I’ll rank the soups below and then tell you my personal favourites at the end. I also suggest serving the soup with warm & crispy cornbread or cheezy garlic bread.

Let’s get warm/healthy/energized…!

Thanks for doing these lists! it’s so easy to forget about all the great recipes you post all year long. We just had Holiday Soup for the Soul with brown rice instead of quinoa and no canned tomatoes (just not a fan of canned tomatoes). Wowww! The curry and saffron really make the dish. Great soup!

I’m sure that my visiting the red lentil and squash curry stew contributed to its popularity in 2011 – I swear I made it at least once a week. It is my absolute favorite and I’m sure at least half of the hits come from me or people I’ve recommended it to!

Yum! The curried lentil soup looks delicious. And now I’m craving roasted garlic! :-)

I made one of your chocolate cupcake recipes today and they were the best vegan cupcakes I’ve made to date. Now I need to make one of your soups to balance out the sugar…. :)

I can’t wait to see what you have in store for 2012!

Each time I come to your site, I am going to leave a comment and never seem to do so. I visit you regularly and I would have to say it is my favorite blog. I made two of your soups today. Had I had more time I probably would have made a third one!! The Holiday Soup for the Soul we had for dinner tonight and it was fabulous. Next time: double batch! I also made the Carrot Apple Ginger soup which we will have with a big salad for dinner tomorrow night. It too is delicious!! (I probably ate a bowls worth while sampling!)

I just want to thank you for all your efforts and for all the information you share. I also do a blog, which by now means compares to yours, and I appreciate the time that is involved to blog. You do a fantastic job.

I am a relatively new vegan – about a year and a half – so I am always looking for recipes. I have made many of yours. One of my most favorites is your Overnight Oats – that one is brilliant!

On my blog today I wrote about your blog and your soups. I hope my readers all come visit you. They will be so happy they did!

Thanks again for all you do.

Hi Angela – I have a strong tomatoe allergy. Any ideas on substituting canned tomatoes in some of these wonderful recipes? The holiday soup in particular has my taste buds in a frenzy. Thank you for your wonderful gifts of fantastic, beautiful, alkalizing vegan foods!

Angela (Oh She Glows) January 5, 2012

Hi Emily! Sorry for the delay in reply.
I don’t know of a substitute, but I do recall seeing a tomato free pasta sauce recipe in the vegan cookbook call Blissful Bites. Maybe you could check that out and see how they did it? I think I recall they used squash and carrots in addition to a bunch of seasonings, vinegar, etc.

While shopping at Whole Foods yesterday, I strolled down the soup aisle and told my husband to pick a few out. Then I stopped myself and said “nevermind- we will MAKE soup.” I don’t know why I ever buy canned soup- it’s so easy to throw a few things in a crockpot and let it go!
I immediately clicked on the husband healing soup- it looks so beautiful! I have most of the ingredients- including some frozen edamame that I bought yesterday. Yes!

I made the soup you did with zucchini, grabanzos, sweet potato and quinoa the other day – dont remember what it is called, but it was delicious! And a great way to use up all the veggies I had sitting in the fridge and it was only ONE pot so less clean up :)

I made the roasted tomato garlic and onion soup last year. I have a big ol squash in my fridge that needs to be dealt with so I will probably make the curry stew with it. I have a bunch of french lentils in my cabinet. Are they a good sub for the red ones in these recipes?

Misty January 3, 2012

Making the creamy tomato soup as I type! Can’t wait to have it! But siding it with fry bread, (but made with 1/2 whole wheat flour, flax and soy milk)

I currently have the curried lental soup on the stove. It’s about 15 minutes from being done and I can hardly wait it smells absolutely delicious. Perfect for getting me out of my cranky, rainy day(year) funk here in Prince Rupert. Lunch, here we come!!!

I made the Broccoli and Cheeze soup last night for dinner (got a rave review from my husband!) and then brought the leftovers in for lunch, my ENTIRE faculty room now has your website after tons of comments about how good it looked! I’ve been following your blog for a while, I love it!! I’ve made so many of your recipes and they have all been amazing, thank you!

Angela (Oh She Glows) January 4, 2012

hah that’s great! Hi Lindsay’s faculty room!! ;)

Lizzy January 6, 2012

I was inspired to make the roasted tomato/garlic/onion soup a couple of nights ago! I had a bit of a hard time reading the recipe on my tiny phone screen in the grocery store, so I accidentally used almost the entire 5 lbs of tomatoes in the soup… and we were out of tomato paste and garam masala, so I improvised with a few tablespoons of a red curry paste my roommate had in the fridge, which tasted amazing with the coconut milk, and some paprika and chile powder. It ended up being a far different, more tomato-y animal than the original recipe, and made maybe 8 cups of leftovers with that many tomatoes, but delicious nonetheless!

I made the Holiday Soup for the Soul this week and had it for lunches all week at work. It was delicious. We’re making the curry red lentil stew tonight for dinner. Thanks for all the great recipes and helping us get our year off to a healthy start!
