There’s a myth that good soups need to simmer forever. Not this tomato and basil soup! Pureed tomatoes, aromatics, a few spices and some cooked tortellini — a whole comforting meal in under an hour.

 

2. Scalloped Potatoes with Vegan Sausages

There’s nothing more comforting than creamy scalloped potatoes. Layer them with vegan sausages and suddenly you’ve made an easy meal that will satisfy the even the pickiest eaters in the family.

 

3. Chickpea Noodle Soup

Chickpea noodle soup? Say it really fast and the non-vegans will think they’re getting that other, more famous noodle soup. After only a bite, they’ll be won over to the vegan side of life.

 

4. Spicy Tomato Gnocchi With White Beans and Vegan Sausage

Gnocchi — the most comforting pasta of them all. Add some vegan sausage, white beans and spinach and you’ve got an instant meal. Your only problem will be what to do with all that time you saved.

 

5. Broccoli “Cheese” Soup

This isn’t your average broccoli and cheese soup. Nope. It’s also vegan, oil and gluten-free. Besides broccoli, this soup is a showcase for potatoes, squash and spices galore.

 

6. Goulash with Smoked Tofu and Potatoes

Looking for a hearty yet comforting one-pot meal? Potatoes and smoked tofu in a paprika-rich tomato sauce make this goulash a dish that is perfect on a cold winter night.

 

7. Winter Vegetable Soup

As far as I’m concerned, barley is an under-utilized ingredient. It has whole grain healthiness and adds extra substance to this winter vegetable soup. So step aside noodles and rice — barley’s come to stay.

 

8. Butternut Squash Pasta with Broccoli and Kale

This pasta has all of the creamy deliciousness of a macaroni and cheese but without the cheese. Instead, the roasted butternut squash is pureed and becomes the sauce. It’s kind of genius, don’t you think?

 

9. High Protein Lasagna Soup

Maybe it’s me, but I love the idea of lasagna soup. All of the comforting, familiar flavors of the classic Italian dish delivered to my taste buds in a whole new way. What’s not to like?

 

10. Spanish Potatoes

This is such a new and interesting way to jazz up your potatoes. Saffron-laced yellow potatoes roasted with a paste of garlic, almonds and fried bread. So flavorful and completely unique.

 

11. Vegan “Chicken” and Dumplings

I did a double take when I saw this recipe. Vegan chicken and dumplings? The ultimate home-style comfort has gone vegan? Oh it sure did and it’s not looking back.

In a short 45 minutes, you can be sitting down with a bowl of hearty white bean, potato and kale soup. This recipe is so easy and uses ingredients you probably already have in your veggie drawer.

How about sourdough bread bowls filled with some of the best vegan meatballs you’ll ever taste, swimming in a zesty tomato sauce. Save this recipe for when you really want to impress someone.

Everyone can use another time-saving weeknight recipe. This orzo risotto with Brussels sprouts fits the bill quite nicely. A yummy white pasta sauce makes it creamy and the smiles on everyone’s faces make it dreamy.

Clam-less clam chowder? Oh yes you can! One sip of this creamy, rich chowder packed with veggies and sea-side flavors and you’ll be a believer, too. Don’t forget the crackers!

Bean stews can take forever to cook. In this recipe, the pressure cooker is the hero, allowing this white bean, winter squash and kale stew to be ready to serve in a little over an hour.

The chili goodness that you know — tomatoes, peppers, beans and spices — but with the added feature of orzo pasta? You’ve got my attention. Now I just need to find a spoon!

Sure you love curry, but have you ever had a Japanese curry? Less spicy and a little sweeter than their Indian and Thai counterparts, they are an ideal vehicle for veggies of all types.

In under and hour and with seven ingredients and one pot, you can be enjoying a soul-affirming soup for the ages. Lentil and Swiss chard should have hooked up a long time ago.
