12 Wholesome Soups for Winter

Can you believe it is October already and we are finally into Fall? The days are getting shorter and nights colder. The coats are out of the closet and so are the hot coffees and teas. It is finally the perfect weather to enjoy soups for dinner. I can have soup every single day and so I have a long list of it to keep me and my family warm all winter long. Here is a round-up of 12 of my favorite soups from my blog. Hope you enjoy them too!

Easy yet amazing 15 minute Pumpkin Soup. This soup is made from pumpkin puree, so make a big batch of the puree to use all winter long. The addition of pumpkin spice gives it the perfect fall flavor!

An amazingly easy soup that can be made under 20 minutes. This Sweet Corn Vegetable Soup is full of health and taste! Made using canned sweet corn and a whole cup of fresh vegetables, my family just loves this soup with a side of toast for winter dinners.

Asparagus and Spinach along with spices makes this tasty and no cream soup. Feel the Spring even in Winter! An easy way to make your kids love asparagus in a whole new way.

A fall must have, Roasted Butternut Squash Soup that is almost as good as the one from Panera Bread! So bring home the squashes and start roasting them to make this yummy soup from scratch.

This recipe is a close cousin of the Cream of Tomato Soup. Made from oven roasted tomatoes, onion and garlic, this soup gives a rustic flavor to the classic. It is difficult to say that this one is better than the traditional Tomato Soup, but I can surely say it is just as good! Serve this soup the Homemade Bread Bowls, which gives it a natural accompaniment and gives you a break from washing the soup bowls.

When Celery is in full bloom, use a big lot to make this flavorful soup with garlic, ginger and onion. It has no cream but it is totally creamy and yummy! This bright green colored soup is perfect for fall and for winter.

Also, once the dumplings have been made, making this vegetable dumpling soup hardly takes any time to prepare. Just boil the broth or water, dunk the prepared dumplings and bring the soup to a boil. Season and serve! That is all it takes to make this amazing vegetable dumpling soup. Now that the weather is getting cooler, it is perfect time to enjoy this soup. It is not made with any cream or any other thickeners. If you like a spicy Version of the soup, just add some chili oil or chili sauce and you can have a spicy dumpling soup in no time!

An amazingly refreshing and healthy soup made from freshly prepared Lemongrass and Cilantro Basil broth along with Vegetables and Tofu. I love to make this soup from the fresh lemongrass growing in my backyard. How about you?

This is a vegetarian adaptation of the French classic and made skinny by doing away with the cheese layer on top and prepared in Oilive oil. No flour or cream used in this one! The soup essentially has caramelized onions, garlic and vegetable stock. The cheese on top can be skipped to make it vegan. Healthy and yummy soup to beat the chill.

Creamy Carrot Tomato Soup is a mixture of carrots and tomatoes with some other vegetables. The soup has no artificial thickeners and is made thick with a secret ingredient.

I first had this soup at Sweet Tomatoes as part of their Asian menu, and loved it so much that I wanted to replicate it at home. Seemed like any other broth to me, with an overpowering taste of ginger that gave the soup it's characteristic. A few veggies dropped into it, and topped with fried wanton strips. Here is a recipe that is close to the original with a few modifications to suit our taste.

How about a tomato soup that can be made in 20 minutes, using a pressure cooker? Also, it has no artificial thickeners or cream. Surprise your family with this easy peasy soup recipe.

Check out this awesome topping for the soups:

Most often restaurants serve croutons with tomato soup etc that are made of plain bread and deep fried. A healthier and more tasty alternative to the fried mess is the baked croutons with a dash of garlic and herbs. Simple to make and the taste is just like the fried version!
