3 Healthy, Winter Soups to Keep You Warm

Cozy season is here to stay in Connecticut, and I’m loving any excuse to cook warm, delicious soups.  I’m naturally freezing all the time, so when it comes to the kitchen I need all the help I can get. Thankfully there are some great soup recipes out there that are healthy, low in carbs and don’t leave you feeling too heavy.

I’ve blogged about this before, but homemade soup is so easy and tastes better than anything you can get out of a can. All you need is an immersion blender! It will change your life.

Here are three soups in our regular rotation, and I hope you might give them a go:

Butternut Squash Soup

This soup is amazing. The soup is hearty, low carb-ish and has a silky, rich flavor and texture reminiscent of potato soup. The recipe calls for butternut squash puree, for which I followed this recipe. OMG – this will be a winter staple in our kitchen!

Curried Carrot & Ginger Soup

This soup has been on a regular rotation in our house for years! I usually make this following a vacation or holiday, when our bodies need a reset. This soup is sweet and spicy, with a nice kick of ginger.

Tomato Basil Soup

This soup is a great (and time-saving) alternative to my favorite tomato soup recipe. Tomato soup as it should be – simple, clean ingredients: onion, garlic, tomato’s, basil, salt and pepper. The recipe only takes about 15 minutes, and you probably have all the ingredients at home right now. What are you waiting for?
