What to Serve with Vegetable Soup
Vegetable soup is a great meal to enjoy in all seasons. It’s warm, comforting and nourishing, and can be easily adapted to suit your tastes and preferences. But what should you serve alongside a bowl of vegetable soup to turn it into a complete meal? Here are some suggestions for the perfect accompaniments:
A simple salad made of leafy greens or root vegetables is the perfect side for a bowl of vegetable soup. Add some nuts and/or cheese to add a bit of protein and crunch, and top with a simple dressing of oil and vinegar.
A few slices of crusty bread are great for dipping into the soup and soaking up any leftover broth. Try a classic sourdough, French baguette or ciabatta – they’re all delicious with vegetable soup!
Particularly if you have a more filling soup, such as one with beans or lentils, a side of grains is a great way to make your meal a little more substantial. Try quinoa, wild rice or millet for a healthy and nutritious accompaniment.
Steamed or roasted vegetables make a great side for a bowl of soup. Try roasted Brussels sprouts, steamed carrots in butter or lightly cooked green beans – any vegetable that’s in season should work well.
Finally, a piece of good quality cheese is the perfect way to round off any meal. Pair a creamy soup with a tangy blue cheese, or try a sharp aged cheddar with a more intense-tasting vegetable soup.
Whatever accompaniments you choose, your vegetable soup is sure to be a hit!
