Warm soup is the ultimate comfort food—especially on frosty, harsh winter days. These recipes will help add a little variety (and color!) to your regular rotation of chicken noodle and clam chowder.
Red: Three-Tomato Soup
The red tomatoes that make this soup so bright and colorful also provide your body with a wide variety of beneficial nutrients and antioxidants that help fight all those pesky winter illnesses.
Carrots provide a surprisingly tasty base for this soup recipe—a perfect complement to the popcorn garnish.
Yellow: West African Peanut Soup
Prepare this vegetarian, dairy-free recipe as an enjoyable, international alternative to more traditional cream and broth-based soups.
Green: Broccoli Cheese Soup
The pretty green color of this soup is brought on by fresh broccoli rather than the dried, processed stuff oftentimes found in store-bought mixes. And the addition of easy-to-melt Fontina cheese makes for a bowl that’s hard to turn down.
Blue and Purple, Too: Kale Fruit Smoothie
While not quite soup in the traditional sense, this smoothie-bowl-ready recipe utilizes many of the same healthy ingredients—like kale and spinach—to provide a cold, delicious alternative to the hot stuff.
The potatoes in this comforting soup are an excellent source of energy- and strength-boosting potassium. Even better, this recipe is both dairy and gluten-free, making it perfect for guests.
Brown: Mushroom Barley Soup
This earthy soup capitalizes on the rich taste of cremini mushrooms while creating a scrumptious alternative to cream of mushroom soup.
