Soups can stand front and center for a complete winter meal, but they make an excellent first course for a festive holiday menu too. For a fancy supper, I like to serve an easy soup for the first course, light salad for the second course, and for the main course, I serve a meatless loaf, stuffed mushrooms or stuffed squash. On the side, I offer roasted vegetables or steamed green veggies. For dessert, vegan cookies, pie, vegan cheesecake, mousse, truffles or festive cake all make an excellent sweet treat! These six colorful soups all make a dazzling way to start off any special meal!
