Spicy Potato and Kale Soup

Spicy sausage in this case, chorizo ​​pairs well with rich vegetables. If you like, substitute collard or mustard greens for the kale. If you can’t get chorizo, hot Italian sausage will work just as well in this soup.

This slow-cooker cabbage roll soup has all the essential flavors of a classic cabbage roll and simmers to create a bold, warming flavor. This flavorful soup has a little sweetness and heat from the hotsauce. The tomatoes and caraway seeds help create depth but don’t overpower the rest of the flavors. The brown rice garnish rounds out the dish.




Roasted Cauliflower and Potato Curry Soup

In this healthy cauliflower soup recipe, roasting the cauliflower first adds depth and prevents the florets from turning to mush. A little tomato sauce and coconut milk give the soup a rich, silky texture. Serve with a dollop of sour cream or yogurt, if desired.

Creamy Turnip Soup

Diana Chistruga

In this healthy turnip soup recipe, humble turnips are turned into a velvety soup made creamy with just 1 tablespoon of butter. Serve it as a starter or side soup. The mini salad on top is optional, but we like a little texture from the greens and a pop of flavor from the vinaigrette.




Coconut Curry Squash Soup with Spiced Seeds

In this curried butternut squash soup, we leave the soft chunks of squash whole to give the soup texture. If you are starting with a whole pumpkin, you can toast its seeds instead of pepitas.




Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Soup

This creamy chicken and mushroom soup is easy to make. Mixed greens and thyme add richness, while bone-in chicken flavors the broth. If you’re in a hurry, you can skip the chicken breasts and add rotisserie chicken at the end instead.




Wonton Soup with Shrimp, Mushrooms, and Brussels Sprouts

Wontons for a weeknight dinner? They’re quicker to make than you think–no frozen wontons required! We used wonton wrappers from the grocery store to cut down on prep time. For the filling, we added fall vegetables–Brussels sprouts and umami-rich mushrooms–for a boost of flavor and texture.




Butternut Squash, Tomato, Chard and Chickpea Soup

This vegan soup recipe is full of colorful vegetables. All those vegetables give this soup plenty of fiber, which ups the satisfaction factor while keeping the combination of calories low which can help with weight loss over time and potentially help you lose belly fat. Vibrant turmeric adds a golden hue to the delicious broth, while cumin and ginger give it a bright, fresh finish. And the best part? This healthy soup recipe only takes 20 minutes, start to finish!

Siraegi Guk (Radish-Top Soup)

Ryan Liebe

This simple soup is traditionally made with dried radish greens, but this recipe from chef Dennis Lee of California’s Namu Stonepot restaurants features something new. Some Korean and Asian markets sell young radishes, which are the perfect green for making this dish. Lacinato kale is a good substitute. Round out the meal with steamed rice and kimchi. Read more about the recipe.




Kabocha Squash Soup

Caitlin Benzel

This silky kabocha squash soup has a hearty flavor and a slightly spicy kick from the Fresno chile. Apple adds a delicious tang and sweetness to complement the coconut milk. Enjoy this vegan soup as a starter course to a fall meal, or double the serving size and serve with a green salad for a full meal.




Slow-Cooker Mulligatawny Soup

It’s a soup with a long history (references to it in English go back to 1784) that can now be conveniently made in a modern appliance. Although it is technically an English soup, its origins are definitely Indian. (The name loosely means “pepper water” in the Tamil language of Southern India.) The sweetness of the apple and coconut milk balances the garlic, ginger, curry and cayenne.
