Super Healthy Soups

How to Make a Healthy Selection


  • I like to make a big pot of soup one day, eat little of it that day. Put it in the frig overnight. It is so much better the next day when the flavors have blended better. - 1/3/2015 5:52:39 AM
  • Once I learned how to make my own soup I have not went back! Think about the problems with canned soup, you have no control over the ingredients and you have a can that may or may not get recycled. I would rather make my own! I just recently learned how to make bone broth, and although as a vegetarian I would never consume it, I do make dishes with it for my partner. Cooking from scratch is not really that hard, just most people do not want to bother. - 12/29/2014 11:39:00 AM

  • I do not like canned soups, soup is not that hard to make and you have more control over what is in your soup, some easy soups are tomato, french onion and any vegetable based soup. - 10/24/2014 11:09:42 AM

    I agree with several of you and by making your own soup you know what all the ingredients are without a lot of processed additives that can derail health and weight loss. It's so easy to put all the ingredients in a slow cooker in the morning before starting your day. - 10/24/2014 8:29:46 AM
  • I was kind of disappointed when I got to the end of the article and, instead of finding a link to healthy soup recipes finding a list of canned soups. I never buy canned, always make from scratch. Soup is pretty easy to make in a crockpot and great to come home to. - 10/24/2014 7:18:51 AM
    When I am short on time, I buy Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato soup from a discount grocer. I keep trying to duplicate it's fresh taste to cut down on the salt. - 10/9/2014 10:19:33 AM
    I also love making soup at home. But I do disagree with the one comment that it's quicker than opening a can. Some soups come together relatively quick, but some of mine cook all day. Many recipes really underestimate the amount of time it takes for the flavors to really come together. - 9/8/2014 1:34:29 PM
  • I make most of my soups at home, too. There are so few vegetarian options and making it at home saves money. First I will saute onions in some oil (no more than a tablespoon). I do like using Better than Bouillon vegetable base to make it easier. Then I just add whatever beans, vegetable and starch (diced potatoes are good) that I want to it. Yum! Since it is snowing, today will be a good soup day. - 3/16/2014 1:43:01 PM
  • I also love to make soup, especially in the winter. I generally make a big pot on the weekend and freeze individual portions to take to work for lunch. I have a short lunch break, but like a hot meal at least once a day, so nuking my soup is a great way to deal with that challenge! I occasionally buy canned soup, but only when I'm in the States and only when it's on sale. Progresso Lentil is a long-time favorite (and, no, I don't work for them)! - 1/18/2014 8:23:41 AM
  • We usually have a couple types of home made soups in the frig, especially in the winter.... right now white bean soup and hot Mexican vegetable soup (made with rotel). Yumm - 1/8/2014 3:18:26 PM
  • I make soup every week and freeze in one cup servings. I take one container out each morning before I go for my walk, by noon its thawed and heat it in the microwave. I add five saltines and a apple and I am set for lunch. I like changing my soup up allot never make the same kind in a month. - 12/10/2013 6:49:32 PM
  • TIP on eating less:
    apparently smooth soups (in contrast to broth-based with bits of veggies, meat etc) are more filling, the effect lasts longer. You can simply smooth a soup with your mixer.
    Quickest soup recipe I know: mix 1 part strong broth and 1 part pureed tomatoes, heat up, add herbs to your liking. - 11/9/2013 3:27:36 PM
