A chill is in the air so that means it’s time for soups! This rich & creamy slow cooker vegan enchilada soup is perfect for a cold day to warm you up! I love to throw things in a slow cooker in the morning and then have dinner ready to go when I’m done with work. And there are stove top instructions as well if you are short on time.
I personally can eat soup year round, but I know many people prefer to only eat it when it’s cold outside. Of course I live in Texas, so that’s rare…lol.
But I recently found an old recipe I had started working on, but didn’t finish. And since I was kind of in a rut with doing the same ole soups, it was time to mix things up a bit!
Mexican Bean & Veggie Soups are Great for Oil Free Plant Based Meals
I love Mexican food and it lends itself so well for whole food plant based meals that are oil free but still have tons of flavor.
This Slow Cooker Vegan Enchilada Soup is oil free, whole food plant based, and even gluten free. It has a light creaminess from the light coconut milk that helps to give it that creamy and cheesy “enchilada” flavor.
Bean & veggies soups are great for being able to eat a lot of food! It’s full of protein and fiber to keep you full & satiated until your next meal, but also low fat so it can help you achieve & maintain your health & weight goals.
Weekly Soup Meal Prep to Save Time
I usually make at least one big pot of soup for the week for both myself & my husband for lunches. It’s so easy and quick to meal prep and saves you time. I’ll put all the soup in a large container for me to eat on during the week. But for my husband, since he works out of the house, I send 5 meal prep containers full of soup to take to work with him.

There are lots of things that can go with this soup as a topping, although it’s delicious all by itself. I like to have 2-3 small corn tortillas with it. And you can warm them up in a tortilla warmer like these in your microwave, or you can bake some tortillas to have tortilla chips with your soup like these Oil Free Chili Lime Tortilla Chips.
You can also top your slow cooker vegan enchilada soup with diced avocado, cilantro, green onions, or even some sliced black olives. I don’t add any shredded vegan cheese because unfortunately they are all made of oil – but with the creaminess from the light coconut milk you won’t miss it!
This Vegan Enchilada Soup Can Be Made in 30 Minutes for a Quick Dinner
If you forgot to set up your enchilada soup in your slow cooker in the morning, no worries! You can also make this soup in 30 minutes on your stove top for a quick meal with delicious leftovers for the week.
