This vegan soup is creamy, spicy, and loaded with vegetables. Every time I serve it to people, they absolutely love it! It’s a great way to get in your vegetables in the winter, and stores well in the refrigerator. You can always add more or less chipotle peppers, but I find that 2-3 gives it just the right amount of flavor and spice. Enjoy, and don’t forget to leave a review!

Do I need to use low sodium vegetable broth?
You can use regular vegetable broth if you prefer, I like low sodium broths because I can always add more salt if needed but sometimes regular broths make soups too salty and there’s really no way to fix that!
