Soup has to be one of the most comforting meals to eat. And the flavor options are endless! I find that the best soup recipes are cozy and nourishing, warming you from the inside out. Today I’m sharing 15 of my favorite gluten-free soups with you, from Vegan Creamy Cauliflower Soup to Cozy Split Pea, and our favorite Sunday Chili.
There are many different ways to make homemade soup, including your stovetop, slow cooker, and the Instant Pot. And it’s easier than you might think!
Traditional soup is often thickened by creating a roux, which simply means melting butter (or fat) in a pot, then cooking an equal amount of all-purpose flour in it while whisking to create a “glue, or paste”.
To thicken gluten-free soup (or gluten-free mac and cheese), you can create a roux using equal parts sweet rice flour (or a cup for cup gluten-free flour blend) and butter, using the same method. It works very well! You’ll also notice some soup recipes use soaked cashews or potatoes that are pureed to add body and creaminess.
A stovetop green chili chicken soup with white beans and salsa verde and warm spices like chili powder and cumin! The beauty of this soup is it’s on the table in less than an hour, but tastes like you put a whole day of prep into it.
This buttercup squash soup is full of smoky, delicious flavor and easy to make! Roasting the squash gives it caramelization before being combined with smoked paprika and roasted red peppers. A warming soup with smoky sweet comfort.
Soaked cashews make this roasted cauliflower soup a creamy delight, without dairy! Garlic is roasted with the cauliflower, adding great flavor. Top with herbs and popcorn, and enjoy the contrasting textures!
This fennel soup is a marriage of humble components that are often overlooked including cabbage and brazil nuts– yes, the ones commonly left in the jar (grin). With a ton of fiber, magnesium, and antioxidants, they’re a nutrient powerhouse. You could use cashews, if you prefer! Sautéing the vegetables allows them to lightly brown and really bring out their earthy sweetness.
