Soupalicious Toronto 2014

One of my favourite yearly food events is coming soon – Soupalicious Toronto will be on September 28th from noon to 4pm at the Wychwood Barns. There are always a lovely amount of #vegan entries, and $15 (in advance) lets you try 10 soups from many different restaurants and chefs. It also goes to a great cause Plant a Row – Grow a Row National. I used to find out which soups were vegan before the event happened, but they’ve just started listing it all on their website, some of them sound delicious, and some of the “vegetarian” ones are also often vegan. You can see some of my finds at Soupalicious 2011. There is something for nearly everyone, check out the list of soups here.

JC and I were both sick, and spent some time vegging out in front of the computer and playing World of Warcraft. I’m still feeling that weird sick disconnected feeling but it’s getting better. The sickness combined with a slight dip in the weather has got me thinking of autumn and soup. Soup and autumn. From simple broth based noodle soups, to heavier lentil, sorghum, rice soups, we’ve been souping it. After I posted one of my cereal based breakfast lunches on instagram, a friend sent over a  jar of homemade soup for my sick self to enjoy. Who says social media doesn’t work? (it wouldn’t be me by the way – I win with soup.) So what better than to talk about ten of my favourite vegan soups of all time on this wonderful day 18 of VeganMoFo? This isn’t a top ten list of course, because I can’t create a hierarchy of soup. I’m also including stews in this list. Let’s not argue. It’s better that way. Some of these I’ve made myself. Some of these I’ve eaten elsewhere. French Onion Soup Two Ways. Homemade, and at the Depanneur.
