curried vegetable soup

Posted on my @Powerof5TestKitchen Instagram account recently, I got several requests for this recipe. In all honesty, I just was throwing different ingredients that I had in my fridge together in a big soup pot that I thought might be delicious together. Soup turned out to be better than expected!  Simmered into a delicious low-calorie soup…Don’t cha love when that happens??

Melissa's Modifications... This soup can be a basis for additional ingredients if you would like to make it more hearty I would add roased curried Tofu or Seitan or smoked Tempeh.
For those of you that do not follow a vegan or vegetarian diet, some ideas might be adding cooked corned beef for an Irish flare, or seasoned curried chicken.
