Delicious Soup Recipes

Soup season is in full swing at my house and that means I’m pulling out all of my favorite vegan soups, Instant Pot stews, and Crockpot chilis.

A warm bowl of soup full of healthy ingredients makes a great one-dish meal that can be served for lunch or dinner. You can easily meal prep one of these recipes ahead of time, double the batch and freeze some for later, or make a huge amount to feed a crowd!

To start off, an easy option like this Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup has the perfect blend of taco seasonings, chicken broth, and beans for a fun spin on Taco Tuesday. 

Or, try out this Healthy Cauliflower Soup that is flavor-packed with sautéed onions, cashews for a velvety, creamy texture, and chicken stock to bring it all together.

You can’t go wrong with this Cream of Asparagus Soup with coconut milk instead of the heavy cream. It’s so simple, and amazingly vegan.

Helpful Healthy Soups Tips & Tricks

  • The basics of making soups takes 5 steps. Chop vegetables and proteins. Sauté the vegetables. Add aromatics and sauté more. Combine remaining seasoning ingredients, liquids, and proteins. Cover with a lid and cook until heated through.
  • Storage is simple. You can freeze for 4-6 months or refrigerate in an airtight container for 4 days, whether you need to stock up on freezer meals, meal prep, or keep leftovers. (Learn more about how to freeze soup!)
  • Reheating is quick.​ Pour the soup back in a pot, cook over medium-low heat, and cover until heated through.
  • Soup is versatile. Instant Pot, Dutch oven, blender, Crockpot… you name it, you can make soup in anything!
  • Have fun with ingredients!​ Add in any favorite vegetable for added nutrition, or if you don’t have a certain ingredient, it can be easily substituted.
  • For a thicker soup, check out this post all about How to Thicken Soup​. Or learn how to make a slurry!
  • Simmering is key. Simmering by covering with a lid really allows all of the flavors to meld together. Don’t ever skip this step!
  • Toppings to switch it up. Whether it’s cheddar cheese, croutons, a grilled cheese sandwich, crusty bread, or sour cream, toppings and side dishes can add extra flavor and nutrition! Try out this Homemade Croutons Recipe to get started.
