Soups

This old-fashioned chicken chili recipe is hearty and delicious but also full of veggies! During the fall and winter, we love this soup for it's immune boosting properties. It includes red bell peppers which are an excellent source of immune-boosting vitamin C. Peppers actually have 3x the amount of vitamin C as an orange!

We used lean ground chicken to make this a lighter version of your traditional chili.

We recommend serving this chili with tortilla chips for easy scooping. We also love topping our chili with avocado slices and a dollop of full fat greek yogurt or sour cream - so good!

We seem to always have extra carrots on hand and this carrot ginger soup is the perfect way to use them up! In addition to being full of fall flavor, this soup is also packed with nutrients. Carrots contain vitamin A, an antioxidant that supports healthy vision. Even though they aren't a bright color, white vegetables like garlic and onions are also rich in antioxidants!

Who doesn't love peaches in the summertime? It's so satisfying to bite into a sweet, juicy peach on a hot day. I love to use any leftover peaches to make this peach soup. This soup is made with just a few simple ingredients, including some hidden veggies like cucumbers and bell peppers!

Peaches aren't just an incredibly delicious summer treat. They are also full of nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin A and fiber.

This minestrone soup is a favorite in my house as soon as there is the slightest chill in the air! Adapted from a recipe found in Ina Garten's Barefoot Contessa cookbook, we boosted the nutritional content of this soup by adding kale and using a whole grain in place of pasta.

This soup is packed with fiber-rich vegetables like carrots, celery, butternut squash, and tomatoes. Butternut squash is a favorite fall vegetable because it is so high in immune-boosting vitamin A (one cup provides 450% of your daily needs) and vitamin C (one cup provides 50% of your daily needs).

The cannellini beans provide plant-based protein and more fiber, making this a filling, hearty soup that works well as an entree.

This soup is a light and delicious starter to any fall or winter meal. It comes together so simply, making it a great meal for entertaining or for serving on busy weeknights.

Pumpkin is a great source of potassium and beta-carotene, a plant compound that acts as a powerful antioxidant within our bodies. Antioxidants prevent free radical damage within the body, which reduces inflammation and the risk of diseases like cancer and heart disease.

For an added nutrient boost, we love garnishing this soup with pumpkin seeds, chopped parsley and a dollop of plain greek yogurt.

This recipe will forever remind us of the fall season. Apples and butternut squash are quintessential fall foods that pair so nicely together in this soup and add a ton of nutrients. One cup of butternut squash has 450% of your daily needs of Vitamin A as well as 50% of your daily needs of Vitamin C. Apples are rich in fiber and onions are great ways to add flavor while also high in antioxidants, compounds that fight inflammation throughout the body.

Serve topped with a dollop of Greek yogurt, chopped pecans and fresh parsley.
