Many soup recipes, particularly vegetarian and vegan soup recipes, call for vegetable broth as a base, instead of water or cream. If you're strictly avoiding gluten, you'll need to make sure you use a gluten-free vegetable broth, such as Pacific Foods brand or Imagine Foods brand and avoid any cubes or powders, which are almost never gluten-free. Of course, the simplest way to make sure your vegetable broth is gluten-free is to make it yourself! Here's how to make a simple homemade vegetable broth.

You'll also need to watch out for soups which are thickened with flour, or, use an alternative and gluten-free thickener, such as arrowroot powder.
Vegan soups should have plenty of flavor, though, so be sure to use plenty of seasonings, including spices and fresh herbs, and, since much of the flavor will come from the ingredients themselves, use the freshest and best quality produce you can find.
