Healthy Soup Recipes

I enjoy making healthy soup recipes. Sometimes it's to warm up on a cold winter day. Other times it's because I can't resist stopping at a roadside stand to buy fresh produce that is so perfect for a summer soup.

Tomato Soup with Basil

1 medium onion
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 large cans tomatoes or an equal amount of fresh tomatoes
4 cups fat-free chicken broth
basil leaves sliced into strips
1 teaspoon minced onion or shallot
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1 cup cream

salt and pepper (to taste)

Saute onion in olive oil in pan until soft and clear.

Add tomatoes chopped in pieces, basil, chicken broth, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then lower heat until soup is reduced by 1/4.

Puree this mixture. Heat soup, add balsamic vinegar, and stir in cream.

Garnish with basil or cheese.

This healthy soup recipe is also good for drinking cold when you are on the go!

Stuffed Green Pepper Soup

1 pound ground beef (I've also used turkey)
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
1-14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
1-15 oz can tomato sauce
1 cup white rice, cooked (I've also used brown rice)
2 green peppers, chopped
1 beef bouillon cube
1/8 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1-1/4 cups water

Brown beef in a large kettle and drain. Stir in dry soup mix and heat.

Add remaining ingredients (excepting rice) and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until peppers are soft (about 30 minutes). Add rice and heat.
