Do you know what season it is? (Besides Christmas of course...)
It’s soup season!
Picture this: It’s freezing outside, but you’re warm inside, already in your pjs even though it’s 7pm because let’s be real, the sun went down two hours ago so it feels like it’s the middle of the night already. It’s been a long Tuesday at the office, so on your agenda for the evening is to spend some quality time with your couch and Netflix.
Now add a delicious homemade soup to this and CAN YOU IMAGINE A BETTER WINTER’S NIGHT?!
So we’re bringing you 6 delicious and healthy soup recipes to help you celebrate soup season the right way!
1. Crockpot Italian Quinoa and Vegetable Soup
Here’s a great way to get that 3 servings of vegetables per day: with this mouthwatering Crockpot Italian Quinoa and Vegetable Soup loaded with onions, carrots, celery, and tomatoes! And let’s be real, isn’t anything made in the crockpot *that much tastier* because of how simple preparation is? (Or is that just us?)
2. Tomato and Vegetable White Bean Soup
What’s cozier than a bowl of tomato soup on a cold winter’s night? This Tomato and Vegetable White Bean Soup takes the traditional tomato soup and brings it up ten soup notches by adding in veggies, potatoes, and white beans. A hearty soup on a night that is too cold to do anything but hide under a blanket watching The Office reruns? This is the soup recipe for it!
3. Skinny Chicken Fajita Soup
No self-respecting recipe list from a Texan can go without a Tex-Mex recipe. This Skinny Chicken Fajita Soup looks ah-ma-zing (with an emphasis on that fajita flavor zing), and it’s low-fat and gluten free! You can even go the low-carb route by eliminating brown rice.
4. 30 Minute Turkey Meatball and Kale Soup
Homemade turkey meatballs, carrots, kale, onion and delicious herbs and spices make this 30 Minute Turkey Meatball and Kale Soup a must to include on our list. Kale is a superfood with health benefits that include tons of vitamins, protein, an omega-3 fatty acid, and more, making this recipe a soup-er food (sorry, we had to).
5. Roasted Carrot Soup
We all know about the usual butternut squash soup, but what about a Roasted Carrot Soup? It’s creamy and tasty and yep, we’ll take some please.
6. Vegetable Soup
Here’s what’s great about Vegetable Soup: You can basically go ham (okay, not really ham since it’s a veggie soup, you know what we mean) on whatever veggies you want to add to it. Then add in some spices and broth, and BOOM, a soup that’s majorly healthy and full of flavor!
It’s the last month of 2018, so let’s make it count!
