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.
Fall Soup Ingredients
While I love the berries, squashes, and crispy produce of Summer, I find myself craving the buttery, hearty veggies of Fall. You’ll find many Fall-fresh ingredients in the above healthy soup recipes because ingredients used in their proper season contain the most nutrients. If you’re creating a fall kitchen garden, then pick from this list!
Versatile Soup Toppings
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
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.
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.
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!
