Soup pot luck – a wide selection of flavours at low cost

On 2 October 2015 we showed the film Cowspiracy. In the interval, a selection of soups were offered to the audience, made by some of the volunteers in the group.

  • Minestrone
  • Broth
  • Garden vegetable
  • Spicy tortilla
  • Raw vegetable

Soup is one of the easiest vegan dishes to make, and it can go a very long way with very money. This broad selection covered various cuisines, such as Mexican, French and a raw dish (kept under 40°C to preserve the most nutrition).
