This is a simple down to earth soup, filled with wholesome good vegetables and flavor.
This recipe is exclusively available in 4 Season Vegan, our cookbook with a selection of our favorite seasonal vegan recipes. It is available on iBooks and as PDF in our own shop.
first, the recipe says 4 servings so I doubled it to make 8. It made way, way too much. I ended up with about 16 servings! Second, I thought it was really bland. No matter how I tried to spice it up, nothing seemed to help much. I won’t be making it again. It sounded soooo good though.
I’m sorry you did not enjoy the soup.
We did eat it …as 4 servings…as our main meal at lunchtime. Yes, they were full servings- big bowls…but after 4 ate, the pot was clean.
Yes, I would agree with you that it is not a spicy, flavorful soup- as many of the ones we usually make.
I enjoy Mexican and Indian recipes the most, but every once in a while, a non-spicy” soup is also enjoyable. having experienced many northern European soups I would say that most of them are on the “mild” side- this Irish soup included. The vegetables in the soup- potatoes, rutabaga, carrots, turnips and parsnips are each quite mild in flavor. They blend well together and the onion and vegetable bouillon add the flavor, although yes, I would agree it is mild. If you wanted to “pep” it up, I would say, black pepper, and maybe a dash of cayenne. I would not use garlic though. I am sorry you did not enjoy it, as we did.
Sincerely, Chris the cook at Vegalicious
