This vegan gluten free minestrone soup is quickly becoming one of my all-time favorite recipes.

I love recipes that cover all the parts of a meal in one dish. This soup has protein, carbs, and fat. And plenty of veggies and fiber.

It also makes SO MUCH soup. This minestrone is great for meal prep—make a batch on the weekend and have lunch or dinners for the entire week. Plus, freeze some to reheat whenever you want a warm bowl of nutrient-dense food.


Vegan Gluten-Free Minestrone Soup

Makes 12 servings

  • 1 Large Yellow Onion, diced
  • 6 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • 2 Stalks Celery, thinly sliced
  • 2 Large Carrots, thinly sliced
  • 1 28-ounce Can Diced Tomatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons Tomato Paste
  • 1 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 1 Teaspoon Dried Basil
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • 8 Cups Vegetable Broth
  • 1 Cup Gluten-Free Elbow Pasta
  • 1 15-Ounce Can Cannellini Beans, drained & rinsed
  • 1 15-Ounce Can Kidney Beans, drained & rinsed
  • 2 Cups Frozen Shelled Edamame
  • 3 Cups Chopped Fresh Kale
  • 2-4 Tablespoons Vegan Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Parsley
  1. Sauté the onion in a large pot over medium heat for 5-7 minutes. Use a splash of vegetable broth if the onion starts to stick.
  2. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds.
  3. Stir in the celery and carrots. Cook 5 minutes, until the carrots start to soften.
  4. Add the diced tomatoes, tomato paste, oregano, basil, salt, pepper, bay leaf, and vegetable broth. Bring to a boil.
  5. Add the pasta. Cook at a boil for 6-8 minutes, until almost tender.
  6. Stir in the beans and kale. Continue to boil for an additional 2-4 minutes until the kale is wilted and the pasta is soft.
  7. Remove the bay leaf. Garnish with chopped parsley and a sprinkle of vegan parmesan. Serve with crusty bread, if desired.
