Soups are also great if you want to lose weight because they’re usually low calorie but still filling enough that they’ll satisfy your hunger without making you feel deprived. Healthy soup recipes is definitely something you should include on your meal plans. However, if you are on a weight loss journey, I would suggest staying away from any of the dairy based soups.
This compilation only includes hot soups, however, if you’d like to try some delicious soups that are served chilled, you can try these.
Chilled Soup Recipes
Another great thing about soups is that most of them make the best make ahead recipes as they can easily be frozen and reheated later. However, there is one exception. I find that potatoes don’t do well after being frozen. As long as the soup does not include potatoes, the best thing is to make a big batch by doubling or tripling the recipes and then you will have it when you are ready.
How to Freeze Soup
- After cooking the soup, let it cool completely at room temperature.
- If it is still not cool after 2 hours, put in the refrigerator to finish cool. If you have a thermometer, the soup should be 41 F or lower.
- Freeze in 1 quart containers, so you can easily take out just what is needed.
- Best if used within 3 months.
So now if you are ready to try some of the best homemade soups to add to your repertoire, visit the recipes below. As you try them, I would love to know which one has become your new favorite soup recipe. Let me know in the comments of tag me on Instagram with your version of these great soups.
Also, most of these can easily be adapted to the Instant Pot. Especially the bean based soups. Cut the cooking time in half by cooking the beans in the Instant Pot.
30 International Soups
With both hot soups and chilled soups, every season is soup season, as far as I’m concerned.
In this compilation your are going to find different soups that fall into different categories. However, they mostly provide a hearty bowl of soup that can serve as a meal on its own. These are not soups that you would serve as a starter course but rather this is the main course – whether for lunch or dinner. Even breakfast – as some of the most popular soup recipes in some countries are often eaten for breakfast like Khao Soi in Thailand.
Although I’ve specifically noted the Vegetarian Soups with a V, many of the other soups are easily adapted to Vegetarian by simply omitting the meat or replacing it with mushrooms, beans or tofu.
Some of these soup recipes come together in as little as 15 minutes. Soup is the perfect answer to quick and easy lunch recipes.
