With balanced and healthy soup recipes of all types, this listing has something for everyone! From chicken soups to vegetable soups and recipes for the instant pot and slow cooker, these warm and cozy soup recipes are sure to satisfy.

So What are Healthy Soups?

Here’s how I define a healthy soup:

  • A balanced soup with veggies and protein and healthy fats
  • It can serve as a full meal
  • The soup is made with real food and minimally processed ingredients

Everyone defines “healthy” differently, but I know that you can find a soup you love and enjoy in this listing!
