Healthy Soup Recipes & Heathy Stew Recipes

Featured Recipes

Minestrone with Endive & Pepperoni

Considering that this minestrone soup incorporates mostly frozen vegetables, it is remarkably savory and aromatic. Look for frozen soup or stew vegetables with potatoes, carrots, celery and onion in the mix to give the soup the best flavor. Although pepperoni isn’t traditionally part of minestrone soup, you’ll find it’s a great shortcut to add spicy, complex flavor.

Paprika & Red Pepper Soup with Pistachio Puree

Richly satisfying, this luscious-looking soup made with red bell peppers gets a touch of heat from Thai chile. For an extra-nutty flavor, puree an additional 1/4 cup shelled pistachios with 1/4 cup water and serve the soup with a dollop of this pistachio puree on top.

Couscous with Rutabaga & Beef Stew

In this riff on North African tradition, couscous is served as the base for a beef and rutabaga stew that’s made with an intoxicating blend of cinnamon, turmeric, coriander and cayenne (optional if you don’t like it spicy). Garnish with fresh parsley or cilantro and serve with sliced cucumber.

Ethiopian-Spiced Chicken Stew

This spicy chicken stew, generously seasoned with the Ethiopian spice mix berbere, is loaded with tomato and red lentils. Depending on brand, berbere spice blend can be rather spicy. For a less spicy stew, start with 3 tablespoons spice blend rather than 5.

Couscous Paella Soup

This soup is inspired by the flavors and ingredients of paella, but unlike paella it's simple enough for a speedy weeknight dinner. If you can’t find Spanish chorizo, use pepperoni (add a pinch of smoked paprika if you have it). Serve with warm whole-grain garlic bread.

Shiitake & Noodle Hot & Sour Soup

This vegetarian hot-&-sour-inspired soup is chock-full of tofu and vegetables, plus noodles to make it hearty enough for dinner.
