There are different types of soup mixes. Here are a few of them, with tips on how to make vegetarian versions of them.
Clear soup mixes – This is usually clear broth with other small chunks for texture. You can use commercially available vegetable stock or vegetable soup to replace chicken or beef stock in any recipe. You can find the best soup mixes online for your home use.

Cream soup mixes – Cream soups are traditionally prepared with cream, in half or with milk. If you are a vegetarian, this will work well. Some of them that you can try are cream of mushrooms, cream of spinach, broccoli, or cauliflower.
But if you are vegan, you will need to replace dairy with alternatives. You can use soy milk or coconut milk instead. The higher fat content in coconut milk gives it the richness you sometimes want in creamy soups.
Delicious lumps, stews, and soups mixes – Other types of soups are thick, plentiful, and loaded with whole grains, pasta, beans, legumes, and vegetables. They are excellent and served as the main course on their own.
Lentil soup mixes have long been a favorite, especially since you can use water instead of vegetable stock. Lentils also go well with almost any vegetable or spice combination. Some favorites are sweet potato, kale, and curry, or the sweet and sour flavors. You can even search online for more information about soup mixes.
