Healthy Soup Recipes
Soup is an incredible vehicle for getting vegetables into your diet. I LOVE sneaking as many as I can into these delicious recipes and watching my boys have second helpings (these are kid-tested and approved! Even for myself, I appreciate meals full of rich nutrients especially after an indulgent holiday season. If you’re looking to add a littles something extra, I sometimes add a side of fresh Soda Bread, Homemade Croutons, or these yummy Garlic Cheddar Biscuits, so I can (quite literally) soak up every last drop!
Grab a spoon and let’s get right to it!
This Curried Coconut Squash Soup is jam-packed with complex curry flavours and comes together in under an hour: now that’s my kind of soup! It’s gluten free (just watch the ingredients that you use if you’re gluten sensitive as some spices and stocks etc can have gluten hiding in them, it depends on the brand) and vegan (just use the vegetable stock option) and bursting with the beta carotene. Plus, it’s a bowl of golden liquid sunshine!
Creamy Potato Leek Soup is perfect for your next dinner and can be made in advance! This vegan version lets the flavours of the ingredients truly shine. The addition of the nutritional yeast is optional, but gives the soup an added cheesy flavour and a kick of vitamin B12!
This blissfully simple Roasted Tomato Pepper Sheet Pan Soup is my everything! Surprisingly easy to whip up, ridiculously delicious, packed with nutrition… and it’s even vegan! P.S. It tastes great with my Homemade Croutons.
Lentils are packed with fibre and protein, making this a perfect vegetarian dish to add to your repertoire of quick healthy meals. From a nutrition perspective, I always recommend having a source of protein at each meal, and lentils totally fit the bill. Lentils have, per cup: 18 grams of plant protein, 16 grams of fibre, around 20% of your daily potassium needs and a solid dose of iron, vitamin B6 and magnesium.
This recipe for Cheater Chicken Noodle Soup is just what the doctor ordered and guaranteed to warm the soul. Full of healthy vegetables, you can whip this feel-good soup in 20 minutes and serve!
This creamy Potato Broccoli Soup is made from simple ingredients and is an easy, healthy meal in a bowl that the whole family will like! You can leave it as is or swirl some cream or cashew cream into it.
This super hearty vegetable soup is LOADED with goodness at every turn with a bright vibrant punch of fresh basil and spinach. Goes great with some bread for dipping!
This soup is packed with beta-carotene (for healthy night vision) and fibre. I love the addition of chickpeas to the soup – it makes the soup so hearty and adds a plant based protein to help make it more filling and nutritious!
One of the best things about this soup is that it leans on dried split peas as the foundation, along with a couple of VERY simple ingredients. Dried split peas are so inexpensive, are a great source of plant-based fibre, protein, and don’t take long to cook!
This plant based version of hamburger soup is the ultimate comfort food on a cold day. Full of healthy ingredients, it comes together with no time at all! Comfort food doesn’t have to disappear in a plant based lifestyle and this recipe is proof. Plus it freezes well! You can make this with ground meat if you want of course to replace the plant-based ground.
Enjoy these healthy soups! Happy stirring!
