Looking for soup brands to try that are both gluten-free and vegan without dairy?
You’re in the right place!
We’ve put together a list of 10 tasty soups that are made without gluten or animal products.
*Just note: Not all of the brands on this list make exclusively gluten-free or vegan products. We’ve specifically selected products that were for this list. That said, be sure to make sure you’re getting the right flavor and always double check the label!
And if you have a severe gluten allergy, always go for “Certified Gluten Free”!
Let’s get to the list!
These soups are superfood soups that can be enjoyed warm or cold. They’re like a drink so I wouldn’t recommend them for comfort on a cold night. But they would be great for a meal on the go, especially if you’re on a liquid diet or something like that. There are three flavors and they’re all vegan.
These are freeze-dried soup cubes. It makes a miso-style soup, and they have 4 different flavors. It looks small but can yield an entire serving of soup. They have 4 flavors including a spicy red miso that is all really flavorful and doesn’t get watered down during the cooking process.
All the ones we’ve looked at were also gluten-free.
These soups in a cup come in so many flavors it’s ridiculous. To our knowledge, all of them are vegan (even though Dr. Mcdougal claims to “not be a vegan”). They’re definitely homestyle tasting, you can’t even tell it’s a microwave soup.

They may not all be gluten-free, though but the split pea is!
This is a slow cooker soup mix. It has real dry beans, so it takes a little longer to cook. But sometimes the best things take a little bit longer. Because this soup takes longer to cook all the flavors have time to marinate together to really transform this bag of beans and vegetables into something marvelous.
You can add some gluten-free pasta to it for a classic minestrone soup!
Dr. McDougall’s also makes heat and serve soups, not just the dry ones. These are a little more flavorful than the dry soups and can tend to be a little salty, but not too much, and you can always add a little water to tone the spices down. The vegetables are soft but not mushy and they are marinated with the flavor of the broth making them extra tasty.
This is a really good noodle soup. And it has those amazing crystal noodles that soak up the flavor of whatever you put them in. This flavor is flaming hot, so this is not for the faint of heart. But the broth will definitely clear your sinuses if you’re looking for help in that department.
This mixture of beans has all the makings to be really bland. Bean soups can sometimes be tasteless if they’re not paired with the right seasonings, and that is the case with this one. On the bright side it’s like a blank bean soup canvas, but if you’re looking for something that you can just throw in the pot and forget about, this isn’t it.
Some salt, pepper, fresh herbs and spices and you’ve got a nourishing meal on your hands.
These are advertised as soups, but they have more of a jambalaya texture. There is a bunch of flavors, and they’re all plant-based. They have all kinds of cultural mixes like curry, tex-mex chili and lime, and Cuban black beans and rice.
The Black Beans & Rice variety (listed below doesn’t have any gluten since it uses rice as the base).
This is a slow cooker soup mix. It has real dry beans, so it takes a little longer to cook. But sometimes the best things take a little bit longer. Because this soup takes longer to cook all the flavors have time to marinate together to really transform this bag of beans and vegetables into something marvelous. Since it’s got a bunch of dehydrated veggies, you don’t have to worry about doing any chopping!
This is one of my favorites of Karine & Jeff’s. The tofu is marinated in this amazingly savory broth and it takes on the flavor so well. The lentils provide just the right kind of texture, and they help boost the consistency a bit when you’re warming it. Overall everything about this is tasty.
