Creamy Radish Soup

Rating: 5 stars 4
In this creamy radish soup recipe, radishes are sautéed and pureed with potato, creating a velvety, healthy soup.

Healthy Cream of Mushroom Soup

Rating: 4.5 stars 6
This better-for-you version of the traditional cream of mushroom soup calls for you to puree half of the soup for that rich, creamy mouthfeel and leave the other half as-is for hits of meaty texture. Don't skip the parsley and tarragon as both add a nice pop of color and their flavors play so well with the mushrooms. Be sure to brown the mushrooms well as that'll add even more depth to the soup.

Smoked Gouda-Broccoli Soup

Rating: 4.5 stars 15
Smoked paprika and smoked Gouda give this broccoli-and-cheese soup recipe a double hit of smoky flavor. If you can't find smoked Gouda, smoked Cheddar gives delicious results as well.
