There's nothing quite like a warm, hearty bowl of soup to bring comfort and nourishment during cozy season. Creating your own soups at home provides a canvas for creativity and ensures control over the ingredients.
A soup can serve as a balanced meal with the right ingredients. Carrots, celery and onions are classic choices that add vitamins and minerals to your soup and act as a great flavor base. An assortment of fresh vegetables, lean proteins and wholesome grains enhances both the taste and nutritional content of your soup. Leafy greens, such as spinach or kale, can contribute an extra boost of nutrients and interesting textures.
Warm up with these delicious recipes:
This flavorful soup packs in a healthy dose of nutrients from onions, garlic, mushrooms and tomatoes. The curry paste is lightly sauteed to bring out the variety of flavors, then combined with creamy coconut milk.
The bell peppers, tomatoes and garlic that provide a base for this soup are first roasted, then blended to creamy perfection. Roasting the vegetables allow complex flavors to develop and brings sweetness out of the garlic. The soup base serves as a nutritious base for the Italian tortellini.
