Vegan Recipe – Harvest Vegetable Soup

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and WonderBag, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #WonderBag http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO

Fall Harvest Vegetable Soup is healthy, satisfying and simple to make.  If you can chop veggies and boil liquid then you can make this tasty Vegan Recipe!  With the help of the WonderBag this recipe is beyond easy!

Soup is perfect for the cooler months because it is so warm, filling and nutritious.  Also, you can make a big pot of soup for very little money and effort.

When I was offered the opportunity to try out an innovative slow cooking product called WonderBag, I immediately started thinking about soup recipes.  I’ll get to the Harvest Vegetable Soup recipe and my fall family picnic in a moment.  Let me first tell you about WonderBag.

Vegan Recipe Harvest Vegetable Soup and Wonderbag

WonderBag is an eco-friendly, portable slow cooker that allows you to prepare a hearty family meal while using less cooking time, effort and money.  No need to hover over your simmering pot for hours.  Just prepare ingredients, bring to a boil, cover and then transfer the pot to the WonderBag.  It does the rest of the cooking for you!  This decreases the amount of gas/electricity that is used during conventional cooking methods.

The other great part about using the WonderBag is that it keeps the food nice and warm.  This product would be perfect for camping/RVing, potlucks, BBQ’s or holiday cooking when space is limited.  For all of you tailgaters, just get your chili boiling and let it cook while you drive to the game!  Wonderbag would make a great gift for any family or friends that enjoy these type of activities!

I used the WonderBag during a Fall Family Picnic.  I packed up the soup, the WonderBag and the kiddos and headed to the park.  Even though we were eating hot soup in 80+ degree weather, it was still a hit! {We don’t really have chilly Fall weather in my area}

While I am lucky enough to use the WonderBag for a fun family outing, many people in Africa NEED it for everyday cooking.  This product can significantly improve their quality of life by cutting cooking costs, using less water and decreasing the amount of time spent cooking over an open fire.

Did you know that women/girls living in poverty and third world countries spend approximately 4-6 hours preparing meals each day?  Part of meal preparation involves foraging for firewood.  This task leaves women vulnerable to violence.  Less cooking time means less foraging for firewood, and most importantly, less time away from the security of homes and villages.

These are the reasons that WonderBag was created.  It is a great product that does a lot of good in the world too!

The really Amazing part is that when you purchase a WonderBag it benefits women and families in other countries.  For every WonderBag purchased in the United States through Amazon.com, one is donated to a family in need in Africa!  Or if you are feeling charitable you can also get involved by donating a WonderBag.

The kids were really curious about the Wonderbag and what was inside.

I got photobombed by the two preschoolers . . . the little tricksters!

My nephew is my picky eater and as you can see in the above photo, he was a little hesitant about trying the soup.  If it doesn’t involve cheese, bread or ranch dressing he isn’t interested!

He did taste it and this was his reaction:
