A beautiful soup is great any time of the year as a weeknight meal, but this Vegetable Soup with Ravioli is especially fun to serve to company.
After looking for a new, easy plant-based, a vegan dish for dinner guests, I happened upon a recipe from Eating Well for ravioli vegetable soup. I love to visit with my friends and show them how yummy a plant-based meal can be. I changed up the recipe a bit by upping the greens with kale and adding beans so I could get more of Dr. Fuhrman’s suggested G-BOMBS in for the day – Greens, Berries, Onions, Mushrooms, Beans, Seeds. This vegetable soup with ravioli is elegant enough for dinners guests and easy to prepare, as well.
The rich tomato base could be enjoyed on its own; but when adding the vegetables and ravioli, this becomes an amazing meal with a variety of flavors and texture. It’s all about the layers of flavor here…
I feel this soup is so festive and warm, making it just perfect for Christmas dinner. I especially enjoy a bowl of leftovers the next afternoon, while the fireplace is going. What a cozy, warming and nourishing treat!
Be sure to try one of these hearty plant-based soups:

- Tomato, Carrot, Brussels Sprouts Soup

Ravioli is usually stuffed with minced meat or processed cheese. Nowadays, it's becoming easier to get a hold of healthier, purer, plant-based food products. Whole foods and other natural foods stores are now holding vegan ravioli. Some brands such as Lightlife, Kite Hill, and Rising Moon Organics have a variety of ravioli you can enjoy without guilt or crazy amounts of fat.
Here’s what Dr. Fuhrman has to say about G-BOMBS: “G-BOMBS is an acronym you can use to remember the most nutrient-dense, health-promoting foods on the planet. These are the foods you should eat every day, and they should make up a significant proportion of your diet – these foods are extremely effective at preventing chronic disease and promoting health and longevity.”
