Healthy Soup Recipes

I can’t wait to dive into these soup recipes with you! I’ve got a little bit of everything since Autumn is so full of fresh vegetables. These soup recipes for Fall will hopefully help you find a few go-to meals that you can make and freeze to use throughout the season.

Feel free to pair these soups with other dishes for a complete meal if they seem a little light on their own. While the Simple Ramen is a perfect lunch, I love pairing the Tomato Soup with vegan basil pesto on toast or adding a kale Caesar salad to enjoy alongside some vegan Potato soup.

Versatile Soup Toppings

vegan tomato soup with text showing good soup toppings including fresh herbs, pesto, cashew cream, salt and pepper and vegan parmesan cheese.

Sometimes you find a soup recipe in need of a bit of oomph. I get it (I put hot sauce on a lot of dishes). Here are two quick n’ easy recipes I keep on hand in a flavor emergency, or just to jazz up my meal:

  • Cashew cream: A good vegan sour cream can provide depth and creaminess to almost any recipe. If you’d add sour cream to a soup, then you can add this!
  • Pesto: There’s just something about pesto that instantly levels up a recipe. I love adding a dollop of vegan pesto to a good vegetable soup. It’s just so good! I’ve got a few different variations you can try, and they all freeze well.
  • Vegan cheese sprinkle: Parmesan is a staple in many American households. This vegan cheese sprinkle certainly gives Kraft’s a run for its money, and its made with real ingredients that really do add a cheesy finish to your dish.

Healthy Soup Recipes FAQs

What’s the healthiest soup you can eat?

There are a variety of soups that boast incredibly healthy benefits. All ten of the soups on my list are made with whole food, plant-based ingredients. They use seasonal produce that packs the biggest nutrient punch, and they leave out inflammatory dairy products (nothing against dairy, yet it causes an inflammatory response in a lot of people!). Use limited ingredients or homemade vegetable stock with limited sodium as well.

Is soup a healthy dinner option?

It can be! Look for a soup with whole food, plant-based ingredients. Use fresh, seasonal ingredients for the most nutrient-dense soup. Look for recipes with protein and healthy fat so they can fill you up and keep you full longer.

Which type of soup is best for weight loss?

While there is no ‘magic soup’ for weight loss, as there are so many factors that contribute to a person losing weight, you can’t go wrong with using whole food, plant-based ingredients in your soup. Make a soup that will fill you up and not leave you hungry 30 minutes later. When I’m looking for a hearty soup I go with my Spiced Lentil Soup, Split Pea Soup or Minestrone. All these are great options for delicious, healthy meals.

Soup-Making Kitchen Equipment

If you’re ready to start whipping up some soup, make sure you have these items in your kitchen:

  • A stock pot, crock pot, instant pot or ceramic pot. Something that can hold six quarts.
  • A blender or immersion blender. Make sure your blender is rated for hot liquids.
  • A good knife and cutting board for chopping ingredients.

That’s it! Soup is great because you don’t need a bunch of fancy equipment to make it, and many soups can even swap ingredients you have on hand and still taste delicious. Ready, set, soup!

  1. I live with my granddaughters, hubby and son and his wife. We have quite a few picky eaters, 1 no meat, 1 no veggies, 1 puts cheese on everything, so it’s hard to cook for this crowd. Everyone loved the minestrone soup with lots of pasta. It was easy to make and finally something everyone enjoyed.

  2. Enjoyed the challenge of more soup. (Kids loved it too!). Black bean was a great one, and loved the spiralized zucchini in the Thai soup for a lovely presentation. Bonus: lots of veg, and a few pounds shed.

  3. This was great! It’s hard to pick just one soup. But my favorite was the carrot ginger soup. My favorite vegetable has always been carrots. The ginger gives this soup a warm inviting taste. I will definitely be making this soup all throughout the fall and winter months. Please do this again!

    Had such a great time making all of the soups. My personal favorite is the spicy roasted pepper – I could eat it every day. I love spicy so I added extra pepper flakes and might add some
    Jalapeño next time (there will be many ‘next times’). The most surprising thing that I learned is that my husband WILL eat tofu … and liked it!

  5. 5 stars
    The tomato soup was my favorite because it is a classic. I grew up eating Campbells tomato soup and grilled cheese. When I grew up and started looking at labels, I quit eating Campbells tomato soup. So, this recipe really took me back to my childhood, but with a food that is better for my health and better to share with my kiddos! I did however, love how this challenge pushed me out of my comfort zone to try flavors and ingredients I hadn’t tried before.

    so happy to join this 10 days soup challenge. Gave me a chance to try different way of cooking some of the vegetables that I don’t cook too often. Really enjoy most of the soup, I am sure that I will do them again.

    Well we’re to begin? As me and my family are not big veggies eater and I’m the only soup lover. It was quite a thing this eating soup for 10 day, but as I wanted everyone to eat. It became a soup/pasta challenge for me. Which was fine I now know I can hide all kind of veggies in pasta or rice dishes now . I loved the red lentil curry iv always been a curry fane so it was right up my alley, mom’s was thai coconut she love coconut and the boy were ok with most. My oldest said he feels better and I need to keep hiding veggies. I’m thinking I now need a new way to do that because soup all the time not going to work when it get hot. Im glad I did it ! It was a new and good experiences and iv learned a lot and am willing to be a bit more adventurous. Wish me luck on that!

    1. You can dehydrate vegetables and grind them into a powder. My husband won’t eat veggies at all….but he gets them everyday in everything he eats…and he says the foods taste better too….must be the “new seasonings” I’m using. I have a jar of dried kale marked parsley….he loves “parsley” sprinkled on everything 🙂

    2. LOL. Love so much that your kiddo gave you permission to keep hiding veggies! We recommend green smoothies for when the weather gets warmer of course! 🙂

    The 10 day soup challenge has been so much fun. We loved all the new soups that my husband and I were able to try and had so much fun making them together. It’s really hard to pick a favourite as we liked them all and can’t pick just one. It is great to have such healthy choices when making soups. Delicious, new spices and new ingredients tried as well. Thank you for the challenge!

  9. Really enjoyed the 10 day soup challenge. Every soup tasted great. My favorite was the Thai coconut. My husband’s favorite was the minestrone soup. My husband had 1 rule. Healthy has to taste good. These were both. Thanks. It was worth the challenge.

  10. Loved this 10-day challenge. I learned a number of new options for soups, herbs and ingredients I don’t normally use, and a bit more about my food processor and blender. Thank you!

    I loved the 10 day soup challenge! Hard to choose a favorite but one that surprised me as a favorite was the Paprika Corn Chowder. Loved the flavors and versatility in yhis recipe. Besides the corn, I could see it being a recipe I can use over and over using vegetables I have in stock or from my garden.

    I did learn from this challenge to make myself cook a nice meal each snd every night! Some days when I have an exhausting day at work I will come home and make a simple dinner for my family, quesadillas or grilled sandwiches. I know I can have the energy and patience to create a fun,, flavorful, healthy dinner. I have been working at being a vegan/vegetarian for a couple of years. At times I give in and eat items that aren’t vegan for simplicity, because my family does not want the same lifestyle so this challenge helped them realize how good recipes are without animal products too! Thank you!!!
