Orzo Soup with Merguez Lamb Meatballs

15 Top Rated Healthy Soups

This sausage is bright red, spicy and piquant. Because it’s seasoned with harissa, it has a subtle Middle Eastern spice that gives this soup such great flavor. If you can’t find lamb mergeuz sausage, you can definitely make your own by mixing ground lamb with a couple spoonfuls of harissa. If even that sounds like too much work, you can always substitute Mexican chorizo or spicy Italian sausage, though the flavors are not the same.

Just take it easy on the more bitter greens: radish, carrot or dandelion — if you decide to use them. The avocado added silkiness, making it lush and satisfying. I’d love to try this with some pesto swirled in next time.

Creamy Broccoli and Spinach Soup

15 Top Rated Healthy Soups

The soup gets its creaminess from pureeing, which gives it all the rich texture of a cream soup without using any dairy. Steamed broccoli and some tender, leafy green spinach take a tumble into the blender and get blitzed until silky and smooth. A crumble of salty feta, a few spinach leaves and a drizzle of olive oil are the final flourish.

Making this soup is very timely. You can “veganized” this soup recipe by substituting coconut oil and coconut milk for the butter and creme fraiche called for in the original recipe. So, not only is this soup vegan, but it is also healthier since it has no cholesterol.

This method of making creamy soups–it adds creaminess without a lot of fat or calories. It also adds a little tanginess. Just be warned–if you’re ambivalent about sour cream, you might want to stick with adding whole milk, half-and-half, or heavy cream instead.

Beet & Avocado Soup with Cashew Cream

15 Top Rated Healthy Soups

Instead of cooking soups all day on the stove – which, we certainly can’t deny, creates a heavenly, homey aroma – you simply blend a few whole food ingredients together with spices and hot water. The spices warm you up from the inside out and you feel satisfied with the nourishing bowl of goodness you just enjoyed.

Chicken Pot Pie Soup

The best news here is that you can successfully freeze this and drag it out later and it is just as delicious. You can definitely use heavy cream or regular half and half (it will probably be even more delicious) in place of the low fat half and half. You can also use a mixed corn and peas blend if you have one.
