Vegan and gluten free food does not need to be expensive or complicated in order for it to be delicious and healthy. This hearty cheap and easy vegan and gluten free soup is made using easy to find inexpensive ingredients. In fact it is likely that you have most, if not all of the ingredients at home already. The soup also only takes round thirty minutes to prepare and reheats well.
The recipe is fairly versatile so feel free to switch the vegetables for whatever you have available. You could use white or even spring onions instead of red or use another type of pasta or spaghetti. If you do change the ingredients keep an eye on the cooking times as different vegetables may need more or less time to cook. Broken up gluten free spaghetti could be used in place of the pasta for a minestrone like soup.
I hope you enjoy this vegan and gluten free soup.
