Easy Vegan Soup and Salad
Before exploring vegan recipes years ago, I had this image in my head of textured vegetable protein and dishes full of complex ingredients that are processed to try to mimic the taste of meat. Don’t get me wrong, there are some really amazing plant-based products out there these days that leave no craving unsatisfied (Impossible Burger, anyone?).
But what I’ve learned through vegan recipe development is that the best flavor comes from allowing vegetables, fruits and legumes to shine! This often means the recipes are even more simple than traditional meat-based ones.
And this vegan white bean soup with cauliflower salad proves that point in the best way. It’s fresh and vibrant, and it’s really a beautiful representation of modern vegan cuisine.
This soup and salad duo wins for flavor and balanced nutrition. White beans (cannellini, kidney and navy) are low fat and pack around 11 grams of protein into a 1/4 cup serving. They’re also an excellent source of fiber, folate, iron and magnesium. Meanwhile, the cauliflower salad is full of fiber and vitamin C, as well as anti-inflammatory properties. This nutritious meal will keep you full and satisfied.
