Default Soups

I like to make homemade soups but when I do I usually put lots of potato in to thicken it and then lots of other vegetables, the good thing is I find these very filling but thats probably because of all the potatoes. Does anyone have or know where I can find some soup recipes? Around 400 calories per serving?

I love homemade soups! I don't make them often enough though.

I have several soup recipes listed on the review page in my sig file, but following sites have lots of yummy ones:

Less than 400 cals per serving but I had to post this one; it's so good.

Fresh Asparagus Soup
INGREDIENTS
1 pound fresh asparagus
3/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 pinch ground black pepper
1 1/4 cups vegetable broth
1 cup evaporated skim milk; may substitute soy milk
1/2 cup yogurt
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
DIRECTIONS
Place asparagus and onion in a saucepan with 1/2 cup vegetable broth. Bring the broth to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer until the vegetables are tender.
Reserve a few asparagus tips for garnish. Place remaining vegetable mixture in an electric blender or food processor and puree until smooth.
Melt butter in the pan that was used for simmering the asparagus and onions. Stir while sprinkling flour, salt, and pepper into the butter. Do not let the flour brown. Allow the mixture to cook only 2 minutes. Stir in remaining 1 1/4 cups vegetable broth and increase the heat. Continue stirring until the mixture comes to a boil.
Stir the vegetable puree and milk into the saucepan. Whisk yogurt into the mixture, followed by lemon juice. Stir until heated through, then ladle into bowls. Garnish with reserved asparagus tips. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if desired.

I love this one - definitely filling and relatively low calorie.

Spinach Chickpea Leek Soup

This is SO good and so fast and easy to make - makes plenty for several days. Great to make on a Sunday and eat all week.

1 tbs olive oil
2 leeks, sliced thinly (circles)
1 zuchini, chopped
minced garlic (I use tons)
2 14 oz cans tomatoes
small can tomato paste
1 bay leaf
3 3/4 cup veg broth
1 14 oz can chickpeas (gabanzo beans) drained
block of frozen spinach (thawed, drained)
1 tbs oregano
1/2 tsp white pepper
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
fresh parm cheese for topping

Heat the oil in a large sauce pan, add leeks and zucchini and cook briskly for 5 minutes.

Add the garlic, tomatoes, tomato paste, bay leaf, vegetable broth, chickpeas and spices. Bring to a boil and simmer 5 minutes.

Shred the spinach finely, add to the soup and boil for 2 minutes. Season to taste. (the longer it cooks on the stove, the better it is). Remove the bay leaf, sprinkle with parmesan cheese (if desired).

I ususally use plain old tomato puree (either readymade or make it myself) and then add water/broth to it. Then I just experiment with various ingredients like chopped parsley, cilantro, lime juice, carrots, onion, oregano, basil, cayenne pepper, garlic, ginger, spinach, tofu, celery, asparagus, colored peppers etc etc... I dont like it thickened but you could use a tsp of corn flour to thicken it!

I also like yogurt blended with tomato puree, heating it and then adding some salt and pepper and oregano.

This is a delicious and EASY recipe.

Red Lentil Soup

2 cups red lentils
2 large onions, chopped
4 -6 portabello mushroom caps, cleaned out and diced
2 6 oz. cans tomato paste
12 cups chicken or vegetable boullion
Olive oil

In a large soup pot saute onions in oil till just browned, add the mushrooms and cook a little more, maybe 5 mins. Add the rest of the ingredients. Bring to a boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for about 25 mins.

That's it. So simple and so yummy. It reheats beautifully.

That was an EXCELLENT soup, I made it tonight ... To slice the leeks really thin I used my mandalinn... it looks like noodles

I made this fantastic soup and it's only about 50 calories per cup! It keeps well and is wonderful!!!!

Butternut Squash & Carrot Soup

1T olive oil or pam spray
1 med onion chopped
3 med carrots chopped
2 to 3lbs butternut squash chopped
2 pints veggie broth
1T minced ginger (jar can be found in Asian section of store)
1t parsley
pinch of nutmeg
salt & pepper

In large stock pot bring saute onion, carrots and squash in oil for 3-5 min. I just kept in on low heat and allowed onion and carrot to sweat for a while in the pot since it takes a little while to peel squash (with potato peeler), cut long ways, scoop out seeds then chop up. Add the ginger and broth. Bring to boil and allow it to low boil for 35-40min. Once everthing is extremely tender, cut off heat and add parsley, nutmeg, salt, pepper. Use either a hand held blender (I call it a boat moter) or if you don't have one of those then allow it to cool then add it in batches to blender to puree. Once everything is pureed, I added a little bit of almond milk to make it a little richer, but you could also add a little splash of milk or maybe even plain yogurt, or you could just enjoy!!!!!!

Hey Ilene, glad you liked it - it's definitely one of my favorites. Never thought about mandalinning the leeks, I normally just do really thin circles. I'm going to try it!
