Spicy potato and kale soup

A spicy sausage in this case, the chorizo ​​pairs beautifully with the hearty greens. You can substitute collard greens or mustard greens for the kale. If chorizo ​​is not available, hot Italian sausage is also suitable for this soup.

The tomatoes and cumin seeds help create depth without overpowering the other flavors. The brown rice decoration completes 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 broth a rich, silky texture. Serve with sour cream or yogurt if you like.

Creamy turnip soup

Diana Chistruga

This healthy turnip soup recipe transforms the humble turnip into a velvety soup made creamy with just 1 tablespoon of butter. Serve as an appetizer or side dish. The mini salad served on top is optional, but we love the texture of the greens and the taste of the vinaigrette.




Coconut curry pumpkin soup with spiced seeds

Jacob Fox

In this curry pumpkin soup, we leave the pumpkin pieces intact to give the soup texture. If you start with a whole pumpkin, you can roast the seeds instead of the pips.




Creamy chicken and mushroom soup

This creamy chicken and mushroom soup is easy to make. A mix of vegetables and thyme adds richness, while bone-in chicken spices up 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 weeknight dinner? They are ready faster than you think – no need for frozen wontons! We used Ruokakauppa’s wonton wrappers to shorten the preparation time. For the filling, we added autumn vegetables – brussels sprouts and umami-rich mushrooms – to improve the taste and texture.




Pumpkin, tomato, chard and chickpea soup

This vegan soup recipe is full of colorful vegetables. All of these veggies give this soup plenty of fiber, which increases the satisfaction factor while keeping the calories low, which can help with weight loss over time and potentially help you lose belly fat. Vibrant turmeric adds a golden color to the tasty 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!

This warming cabbage soup is full of flavor. The bratwurst and mustard add savory flavors, which are complemented by the sweet potatoes and topped with an apple salad that adds sweetness and crunch. Savoy cabbage adds texture to this perfect cold weather soup.




Siraegi Guk (Radish Soup)

Ryan Liebe

This rustic soup is traditionally made with dried radish greens, but this recipe by Chef Dennis Lee of Namu Stonepot Restaurants in California includes fresh ones. Some markets in Korea and Asia sell young radishes that are mostly green to make this dish. Lacinato cabbage is a good substitute. Complete the meal with steamed rice and kimchi.

Kabocha Squash Soup

Caitlin Bensel

This silky kabocha squash soup has a warm flavor profile with a slightly spicy kick from Fresno Chile. The apple adds a nice taste and sweetness to complement the coconut milk. Enjoy this vegan soup as an appetizer for an autumn meal, or double the portion size and serve a full meal with a green salad.




Slow Cooker Mulligatawny Soup

This soup has a long history (references in English go back to 1784) that can now be conveniently prepared in a modern appliance. Although technically an English soup, its origins are clearly Indian. (The name loosely means “pepper water” in the South Indian Tamil language.) The sweetness of the apple and coconut milk balances the garlic, ginger, curry and cayenne.
