All Things Red Soup {vegan}

A yummy and easy soup for cold fall or winter days. This recipe was given to me by my mother who follow’s the recipe ounce for ounce……. Me, I tend to add a little more of this and a little more of that. I’ve written the original recipe and then included my {little extras}.

All Things Red Soup {it’s vegan}

all things red soup pipers run 2


1 red pepper, seeded and chopped {I add 1 yellow and 1 orange pepper too)

1 onion, chopped {I omitted this}

1 garlic clove {I add 2-3 garlic cloves}

2 tbsp olive oil

1 litre veggie stock {I add in 2 cups of water}

2 tbsp long grain rice {I add 1/2 cup of basmati brown rice}

2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce {if you want this to be vegan…make sure you buy vegan Worcestershire Sauce}

1 can of red kidney beans (200g/7oz) {I add 1 can of chic peas}

1 tsp dried oregano {ha ha, I never measure this and always put more in}

1 tsp sugar

salt and ground pepper

fresh parsley, chopped.


  1. Put the pepper, onion and garlic in a large saucepan. Heat until sizzling then turn down to low. Cover and cook gently for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients except parsley and bring to a boil.
  3. Stir well and then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
  4. Add parsley just before serving.
  5. Enjoy!

Side note: Soup freezes really well.

  1. I really like making carrot and coriander soup and I will eat almost any kind of soup but what I miss the most is my late granny’s Dutch bean soup. Even thinking of it now makes me hungry. I eat soup all year round. It’s such a delicious, light quick meal.

  2. This looks absolutely delicious! I’ve been trying to focus my meals around vegetables lately and this looks like a great option. And since you asked, my favorite soup is Tom Kha Ga, Thai coconut soup 🙂
