Meal Prep friendly vegan gullash soup

This vegan gullash soup is completely meal prep friendly. You can make it in advance and freeze it for later, or just make it the day before. Being made in advance intensifies the flavours and really brings out the spices in this soup. And it doesn’t get much easier than just reheating this soup in the microwave whenever you are ready to eat.

Can I use something other than coconut milk?

Yes, you can. This soup really needs that full fat flavour that the coconut milk adds, but you can get that same flavour depth in a few ways. If you are vegetarian you can simply use full fat cream, but if you’re vegan you have to get more creative. 

A great way to get that creamy flavour to the soup is to substitute the coconut milk with 5 tablespoon olive oil together with soy milk. It still creates that roundness of flavours we’re after. 

Another option is to use almond milk and add either 5 tablespoons olive oil or non-dairy butter to the soup. 

All of these substitutes work very well.

Instructions

  • Fill a pot with water and bring to a boil. Carefully add the diced potatoes and turn down the heat just enough so that the water is still simmering around the potatoes. Let the potatoes cook for 15 minutes or until they are cooked through and soft when you prick them with a knife. Drain the water from the potatoes and add the cooked potatoes to a large soup pot. 
  • Heat olive oil in a large frying pan and add the finely chopped carrots. Let the carrots cook at medium high heat while stirring occasionally until the carrots start to turn golden at the edges. Season the carrots with smoked paprika and salt. Stir together to combine and allow the carrots to cook for a few more minutes. Remove from the heat and add to a large soup pot.
  • Next, put the frying pan back on the heat and add the chopped mushrooms. Grill the mushrooms at medium heat until the liquids they release have evaporated. Add the red onions, garlic and chopped bell peppers and stir together to combine. Season with salt and a tablespoon of paprika. Let everything cook while stirring occasionally until the onions have softened. Remove from the heat and add all the veggies to the soup pot. 
  • Heat the soup pot and add kidney beans, sweet corn, chopped tomatoes and vegetable broth. Stir together to combine before adding the canned crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, chilli peppers, coconut milk, bay leafs and soy sauce. Add the rest of the spices and mix everything to combine. Add extra salt and water if needed.
  • Let the soup come to a boil before turning the heat down to a simmer. Leave the soup to simmer for 30-50 minutes.Serve with a side of bread and enjoy.
