Warm Up with These 5 Healthy Vegetable Soup Recipes
It may be December, but don’t let the cold weather keep you from enjoying fresh produce. A piping hot bowl of soup is the ultimate comfort food during the winter months, but soup doesn’t have to be rich and creamy to be satisfying. Our favorite fruit and vegetable soup collection proves that flavorful, fresh ingredients can be enjoyed year-round, plus they’re healthier too! Warm up this December with these healthy vegetable soup recipes.
· Carrot-Parsnip Soup with Parsnip Chips: The wintertime chill turns root vegetables, like carrots and parsnip’s natural starch to sugar, lending their complementary, slightly sweet flavors to this easy recipe. A topping of crunchy parsnip chips is an unexpected and delicious twist to this healthy vegetable soup. Tip: If you prefer a thinner consistency, stir in more water or broth.

A little fresh goat cheese and a touch of butter are just enough to give this spinach soup the comfort food feel we need during the winter months, without overdoing it. Tip: Use dark green spinach for the lovely color it produces.

· Tomato Vegetable Soup: A simple but hearty vegetable soup recipe filled with tomatoes, carrots, celery, and onion and rounded out with high-fiber barley. This soup is comforting, yet healthy, and you'll make it again and again. The barley makes it more of a full meal than other vegetable soups, so whip up a green salad, and call it a night!

· Broccoli & Cannellini Bean Soup: Soup using broccoli as a base? Healthy! Dousing that broccoli in cheese? Not so healthy. Instead, make your own healthy version of your favorite broccoli-cheddar soup. Try pureeing white beans into this vegetable soup for the extra creamy taste we love, without the extra calories of cheese. Tip: While we enjoy the convenience of canned beans, they tend to be high in sodium. Give them a good rinse before adding to a recipe or opt for low-sodium or no-salt-added varieties.
