Soup season is here! I LOVE a bowl of warm, cozy soup. I curl up on the couch with it warming my hands like a big cup of coffee and enjoy every last slurp. Oh, and I almost always burn my tongue because I’m too impatient to wait for it to cool down.
Soup is the best because it’s easy to find fast, healthy and delicious recipes, and it usually makes a big batch perfect for leftover lunches.
I’ve done all the work for you, scouring Pinterest for the best Fall soups. I’ve even made (almost) all of them so you can learn from my experience.
Here’s a quick roundup of my favorite healthy soup recipes that you should make this Fall:
- Creamy Chicken Tortellini Soup from A Spicy Perspective
- Cauliflower Chowder from Damn Delicious
- One Pot Lasagna Soup from I Heart Naptime
- Kale, White Bean and Chicken Soup from Averie Cooks
- Smoked Sausage, Kale and Potato Soup from Diethood
Creamy Chicken Tortellini Soup
There are so many things to love about this recipe. 1: Tortellini! 2: You cook the chicken right in the soup – easy and fast. 3: only 1/4 cup of cream! Even better, a 1.5 cup serving is only 172 calories and packs in some veggies. This soup feels indulgent, but is super light and filling. Definitely a winner!
If you’re obsessed with cauliflower like I am, give this recipe a try. It’s great if you’re watching carbs, or if you’re more like me, it’s great for eating with a few pieces of homemade crunchy and chewy bread. Because balance. Chungah’s recipe uses only a cup of milk and no heavy cream. It’s rich without being heavy at all and is less than 200 calories a serving.
Side note: I was made fun of for eating this soup at work. Apparently some people don’t like cauliflower/veggies? Does not compute.
One Pot Lasagna Soup
Ok, this recipe may be a bit of a stretch to call it healthy, but with a few changes, it could be. Or you could just enjoy it in all its cheesy, pasta-y, Italian sausage-y glory. To make it healthier, I would use Italian turkey sausage, leave out the optional Mozzarella cheese and cut down on the pasta a bit. But this recipe is worth it and so yummy.
Kale, White Bean and Chicken Soup
I love all the good stuff in this soup – kale, beans, celery and cabbage. It’s a goldmine for nutrition. I don’t like that it calls for already cooked chicken. That drives me nuts. When I made it I let the chicken simmer in the soup and then shredded it. I also used zucchini instead of cabbage when I made it, but I’m sure cabbage would be delicious. Just over a cup of this soup is only 147 calories, so eat up!
Smoked Sausage, Kale and Potato Soup
I haven’t actually made this recipe yet, but it looks super delicious and I plan on making it for dinner tonight. Look for my next Friday Recipe Roundup to find out how it goes!
Enjoy your cozy evenings curled up with a cup of soup, a book or a scary movie. It’s the best time of the year!
