Vegan Broccoli Potato Soup

Sometimes, simple just tastes better; this soup is the living example!

Prep time

total time
75 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 3 whole carrots
  • 3 stalks celery
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 4 red potatoes
  • 1 bunch broccoli
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 2 32 oz containers vegetable broth
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt
  • Cracked pepper


  1. Dice carrots, celery, and onion. Add 2 tablespoons of vegan butter to a saucepan over medium heat. Once melted, add your diced vegetables and reduce heat to low, cooking about 10 minutes until fragrant and soft. Salt generously.
  2. Peel and chop red potatoes. In a medium-size pan, cover the potatoes with water, add salt, and cook on high until potatoes begin to boil. Reduce heat to medium and continue to boil for about 2 minutes, then drain. Potatoes should be al dente (able to be speared with the tines of the fork, but firm).
  3. Clean and dice broccoli, including florets and stalks. In a large pan or crockpot (see more on step 4), placed cooked carrots, celery, onion, and red potato. Add broccoli, garlic, and oregano, then cover with two containers of vegetable broth. Add extra-virgin olive oil and a generous portion of cracked pepper.
  4. You have two options to finish cooking this soup: if you're on-the-go, you may throw everything in a crockpot on low for 5-6 hours. Otherwise, put this in a pan over medium heat for about 20 minutes, until it begins to simmer; reduce to low and cook another 25 minutes, or until broccoli and potatoes are tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Additional Notes:

  • Pro tip: Serve this soup with a warm baguette or vegan grilled cheese.
  • Did you know there's actually a name for the heavenly carrots-celery-onion combination? In French cooking, this is referred to as "mirepoix."
