There are few things I love more than a big bowl of soup. Not only are soups delicious – they’re SO easy to make. They’re perfect for loading up with veggies and protein for a filling meal.
We have some sort of soup recipe at least once a week. Sometimes more in the colder weather! Over the years I’ve found the perfect way to make soup and some tips for storing/serving it. I’ve shared them for you below as well as 20 of our favorite soup recipes!
Tips for making healthy soup recipes:
- Add more veggies! You can always sneak in more veggies to soups. I like to use my food processor to get the veggies in super small pieces, or add a couple cups of chopped greens at the end of cooking soup.
- Use bone broth: Bone broth is an awesome way to amp up the protein and nutrients in your soup recipes
- Always include celery, onions and carrots – These are the base of all great soup! They add flavor and are so yummy.
- Use a parmesan cheese rind – This is such a simple thing you can do to amplify the flavor of your soup. I grab them at the grocery store. Simply remove them once you’re done cooking and you’re good to go!
- Add pasta, zoodles and greens at the end. I rarely cook pasta/zoodles in soup. You’re better off to cook separately and then add to your bowl when you’re serving!
Tools for healthy soup recipes:
You can make all of these soup recipes with your stove and a good pot (or dutch oven).
How to store soup:
These are my favorite containers for soup. Mason jars are also great for storing soup!
Can you freeze soup? Yes you can freeze soup! Store your soup in an airtight containers.
When you’re ready to eat, defrost the night before by leaving this in the fridge, or take out of the refrigerator and heat over the stove/in the microwave.
