16 Healthy Vegetarian Soups and Stews

Vegetarian soups and stews are a great way to use fresh produce and create low-calorie meals. Soups and stews freeze well, meaning you can make large batches ahead of time to simple reheat later. In this collection of healthy, vegetarian soups and stews, you will learn how to make the perfect cabbage soup diet recipe, tomato soup from scratch, and healthy vegetable soup recipes.

These easy soup recipes are also very inexpensive, not only because they do not use meat, but also because they stretch these ingredients with broth. Consuming broth-based soups with high-fiber ingredients like black beans help you stay hydrated and fill up with fewer calories. Save more money by purchasing dry lentils, beans, and other ingredients in bulk and cooking yourself a big batch of soup and saving the leftovers for the future.

Make Vegetarian Soups and Stews Even Healthier

With good recipes and these tips, you are sure to stay on your vegetarian weight loss goals no matter what you encounter.

1. Replace butter (a saturated fat) with a small-amount of olive or sunflower oil (unsaturdated).

2. Replace cream with fat-free plain yogurt or evaporated skim milk. You can also use pureed potato to thicken soups instead of cream.

3. Replace one egg in a soup recipe with two egg whites or 1/4 cups low-cholesterol egg replacement.

4. Replace sour cream with this recipe: mix together 1/2 cups cottage cheese with 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice.

5. Garnish soup with fresh chopped herbs instead of cheese or use a small amount of skim milk cheese.

Cabbage Soup Recipes

Make cabbage soup with one of these healthy, yet tasty cabbage soup recipes and you'll understand the hype. You can make big batches of your favorite and save it for later when you're craving healthy cabbage soup.

Tomato Soup Recipes

Make tomato soup from scratch with one of these healthy soup recipes. There's almost nothing better that hot bowl of tomato soup and a crusty bread to dip in the soup.

Vegetable Soup Recipes

When you get the sniffles, the only thing that can make you feel better is a big bowl of vegetable soup. All of these healthy soup recipes are the perfect thing to make you feel better. We suggest that you add a bunch of garlic and it'll help cure what ails you.
