Healthy cooked and raw soups recipes.

How to Make Healthy Pea Soup

Surprisingly delicious and rich in a number of health-enhancing nutrients, green pea soup is a solid choice for any health-conscious budget. This soup will provide you with plenty of natural vitamin C, healthy omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, healthy carbohydrates, and a few unique phytonutrients that provide anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. - Ben Kim

 

Nourishing Kale and Chickpea Soup Recipe

Kale is a member of the cabbage family, and is an excellent source of the full vitamin C complex, and cancer-fighting carotenoids. It's also a good source of iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamin K, and potassium.

Chickpeas are one of the least expensive, nutrient-rich foods that you can eat. They're rich in a number of nutrients, most notably folate, manganese, tryptophan, copper, iron, and of course, healthy protein. Due to their high tryptophan content, chickpeas are an excellent food choice for people who have trouble getting restful sleep.

 

Roasted Cauliflower and Potato Soup - A Digestive Tonic

Making top notch soup doesn't require formal training or a pint of heavy cream.

To make soup that your family and friends will rave about, all you need are a handful of wholesome ingredients: two heads of cauliflower, a couple of Yukon gold potatoes, two shallots or a yellow onion, and a fresh bunch of any favorite herb.

As with most soups that include a healthy portion of cooked Yukon gold potatoes, I find that this soup is consistently helpful to those with an inflamed stomach or colon.

 

How to Make a Velvety Squash and Apple Soup

Mellow-sweet and abundant in cancer-preventing antioxidants like vitamin C and carotenoids, butternut squash makes for a delightfully healthy base for autumn and winter soups.

The following recipe calls for two crisp apples, a simple way to add a hint of sweetness to a velvety squash soup. Enjoy!

 

Heart-Healthy Soup

To keep your blood homocysteine level within a range that's optimal for cardiovascular health, try including leeks in your weekly menu with this restaurant-quality soup.

Leeks are a good source of both folate and vitamin B-6, both essential to preventing buildup of homocysteine throughout your body.

 

Yin Yang Antioxidant-Rich Soup

This savory bell pepper soup recipe is rich in a number of antioxidants, most notably, carotenoids and vitamin C. The Yin-Yang presentation is created by pouring red and yellow bell pepper soups into each serving bowl at the same time.

 

Soup for Longevity

Shiitake mushrooms have long been used in traditional East Asian medicine as a tonic to promote longevity. Rich in healthy protein, a number of B vitamins, and dietary fiber, shiitake mushrooms add significant nutrient value, a chewy texture, and naturally smoky flavor to any dish that you add it to.

 

Soup for Healthy Bones and Teeth

To experience optimal health, including flexible and healthy bones and teeth, it's vital that you eat plenty of green plant foods on a regular basis. And ounce for ounce, few green plant foods are more nutrient-rich than green peas.

Green peas are naturally abundant in folate, vitamin B1, vitamin B6, carotenoids, tryptophan, vitamin K, manganese, healthy protein, and a number of other health-promoting nutrients.

 

Anti-Cancer Soup

A simple and effective way to lower your risk of developing cancer is to eat cabbage on a regular basis.

Cabbage belongs to the Cruciferous family of vegetables - other prominent Cruciferous vegetables include kale, Bok Choy, cauliflower, and broccoli.

Phytonutrients found in cabbage and other Cruciferous vegetables can stimulate the production of enzymes that can detoxify your cells, leading to efficient elimination of free radicals, toxins, and potential carcinogens from your body.

 

Digestive and Immune System Tonic

If you aren't optimally digesting your meals, you might try including fresh ginger in your daily routine. Ginger has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine as a tonic for the digestive system for its ability to promote relaxation of the smooth muscles that line the gastrointestinal tract.
