Homemade vegetable soup recipes are available via websites such as About.com, Cooking Light, Food & Wine and Eating Well. The websites provide recipes that include chunky and creamy versions.
Onions, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes and celery are a few of the vegetables included in the recipes. Some of the recipes utilize lentils, barley, beans, quinoa or rice, which are ingredients that help make a soup more filling. Some soups also incorporate pasta, noodles or dumplings. Herbs and spices add flavor, as do liquids such as broth, lemon juice and coconut milk. Some of the vegetable soup recipes include meat, while other recipes are vegetarian or vegan.
