Similar to classic Tuscan white bean soup, this dish stars fiber-packed kidney beans that blast your metabolism and keep you full for hours. Though this soup is healthy and weight-conscious, it packs a punch of flavor!
Lentils are always on heavy rotation during the colder months. Something simple, guilt-free, filling, and budget-friendly is just what the doctor ordered. This Goodtaste original is aromatic, with toasty Indian spices and creamy coconut milk, plus kale and sweet potato for extra nutritional oomph.
This beyond-easy soup comes together in just half an hour. The pumpkin gives the soup a creamy sweetness while the tart apple keeps it bright. Warm spices like cinnamon, chili powder, and cayenne pepper add a Tex-Mex spin that will keep you warm from the inside out. Serve with a dollop of Mexican crema and griddled tortillas for dipping.
This riff on classic chicken noodle soup from Pinch of Yum will be your new go-to, with a rich, creamy broth, but without any cream! To balance out the richness, fresh lemon juice keeps this dish vibrant, and shredded rotisserie chicken keeps it easy enough for a quick weeknight meal.
This Ahead of Thyme one-pot meal is a modern take on classic red chili. The mixture of shredded chicken, cream, and white beans is the delicious reasoning behind the name, yet it still packs a powerful punch of spice, with cumin, green chilies, and garlic. Blend the beans for a creamier texture or leave them whole for a hearty and healthy stew.
Make comfort food healthy with this smoky potato soup from Love & Lemons. The smooth mix of golden potatoes and white beans, freshened with Dijon and lemon, is so luscious, you won’t even notice that the cheese is missing. (But feel free to garnish with some shredded sharp cheddar!) Vegan or not, slurping this soup all winter long will not disappoint.
Asian fusion has brought exceptional broth-based soups to the culinary milieu, lightened with fresh ingredients that are low in fat and calories. Delicious shares its take on Prawn Tom Yum, a traditional Thai soup favored by seafood lovers. Add a splash of heavy cream and a dollop of chile paste for a creamier, yet just as delicious, dish.
For those days when plain vegetable soup just doesn’t cut it, The Cozy Apron has found the solution. Whip up this nourishing, brothy soup filled with spicy sausage, soft gnocchi, and aromatic vegetables. Serve with fresh focaccia or French bread for a comforting dinner you can enjoy all week long.
If you’re a fan of creamy soups, then add this Cookie + Kate dish to your list! The silky texture usually created from heavy creams and cheeses is instead mimicked here by blending nutty and roasted cauliflower. Serve with a fresh side salad for a well-rounded meal that keeps the calorie count low.
Feasting at Home brings you a bright and cozy soup that takes only 15 minutes to make. Sauté the onions and garlic and let the Instant Pot do the rest—making this a perfect last-minute weekday meal. Add what you already have on hand to the winter cruciferous veggies or switch out the chicken with turkey. Either way, just make sure to include the core spices and herbs that really make the dish.
Calling for only 15 minutes and 5 ingredients, this chicken tortilla soup from The Modern Proper is one of the easiest yet. Using rotisserie chicken is a game changer when it comes to quick dishes, especially when mixed with ingredients already found in your pantry. Switch up the dish each time and top with different ingredients like fresh lime, grated cheese, avocado, or crispy tortilla strips.
