7 Healthy Soup Recipes
Red Lentil Soup
Measure the red lentils into a medium size saucepan. Rinse and drain the lentils a couple of times to wash off excess dust and dirt.
Add water and broth to your pot and place it on medium-high heat.
Add cumin seeds, cayenne pepper, garam masala, and turmeric. Finish up with some salt and a pat of butter.
Once your soup is boiling add diced onion, tomato and freshly grated ginger root to the mix.
Let the soup boil for a couple of minutes, then cover the pot and lower the heat so things can simmer and thicken.
After ten minutes, take a peak and stir. You can add more water to thin your soup or leave it nice and thick.
Remove the pot from the heat and stir in cilantro, finely chopped broccoli and a squeeze of lemon.
Finely chop onion and garlic.
Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-low heat. Once hot, add the onion and garlic.
Season with salt, pepper, thyme, and Herbs de Provence, about a pinch each.
Peel carrots and chop into rounds and add to pot.
Add diced tomatoes, corn, green beans, celery, potatoes, and vegetable broth and continue to cook, stirring occasionally. Finally, chop kale and stir into soup.
Bring to a simmer, and cook until vegetables are tender. Enjoy!
Butternut Squash Soup
Dice onions and garlic. Heat olive oil in a pan and add the onions. Sautee until golden, about 5 minutes.
Add the garlic, sage leaves and bay leaf. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add butternut squash and broth. Cook at a simmer until squash is tender, about 20 minutes.
Add beans and continue to let simmer.
Slice bread into hearty slices. Brush olive oil onto each side and toast in oven or on a grill pan with nice grill marks.
Serve soup with a slice of grilled bread for dipping!
Matzo Ball Soup
Start by stirring together the eggs, seltzer, oil, dill, salt and pepper.
Add in the matzo meal until a wet dough forms.
Cover with plastic wrap and allow to chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil to cook the matzos. In the meantime, to make the soup, add all the ingredients except the parsley to a large pot and bring to a simmer. Cook until the chicken is done and the vegetables are tender, approximately 20 minutes.
Once the matzo balls have chilled, wet your hands and form the dough into 1" diameter balls and drop into the boiling water.
Wet your hands in between each matzo ball to ensure the dough does not stick to your hands. Do not overwork the dough or your matzo balls will be tough. Be careful not to overcrowd the pot with the matzos since they will double in size while cooking. Cover the pot and cook for 20 minutes.
Once the matzo balls are done, remove them from the pot with a hand-held strainer and place into the soup pot.
Taste the soup and check for seasoning.
Add the parsley and serve immediately.
