Three January vegan soups in the mid-Hudson Valley

Mid-Hudson Valley restaurants have been serving some great vegan soups. In this post, I feature three, with pictures of varying quality (I apologize for this and for not comprehensively covering offerings everywhere. This is by no means a top three list!)

  • Chili (V), one of the soup specials a few days back from the veg-friendly Sissy’s Restaurant on Wall St. in Kingston (dish pictured below). The soup was obviously chunky and colorful with a variety of ingredients.

  • Borscht at Kingston’s vegetarian Outdated: An Antique Café, also on Wall St. (Parts of the area’s Catskill Mountains were once known as the “Borscht Belt,” an allusion to this dish of Eastern European origins.) The soup is pictured with a side salad, ordered from the regular menu.


  • Jamaican Jerk Red Bean and Rice soup from the (more or less strictly) vegan Garden Café Woodstock, another special. Soups of this type occasionally appear on the restaurant’s menu board, and this one was served just last night.

All savory and delicious!
