Roasting is a quick and easy cooking method that enhances the flavor of fresh vegetables. Surprisingly, it’s also a great way to start a healthy soup! Pop some cauliflower in the oven, then sit back and relax. In 30 minutes, combine your roasted florets with some garlic, leeks and chicken stock in a food processor. The smooth and creamy results go straight to your bowl—no stovetop step required!
In the heart of winter, nothing seems to take the chill off like a steaming bowl or mug of soup. Cooking a soup meal can be a lovingly drawn out affair, or as simple as opening a can. Many people have found a happy medium by buying ready-made beef, chicken or vegetable broth, and adding their own fresh root and green vegetables in a slow simmer.
What are your goals for 2013? Most of us resolve to improve our lives in some way, whether it’s shedding pounds, getting fit or eating more healthy foods (oops, are those chocolate chip cookies lurking in my cabinet?!). And when it comes to enhancing your health by slimming down, Vitacost wants to help with these tips for weight loss success:
Comfort food doesn’t have to be unhealthy. Instead of reaching for a calorie-dense snack, try a bowl of this delicious veggie-packed soup, courtesy of Chef Oonagh Williams.
Canned soup. It was one of my staples as a freshman in college, having only a microwave and a can opener to work with when it came to preparing food. I must say, I never thought I’d look forward to another can of chicken noodle soup. But this convenient food has come a long way in the past 10 years.
Going green takes on new meaning with this simple, satisfying soup. Lightly steamed veggies, fresh herbs and a hint of your favorite healthy oil are pureed to a creamy consistency, then served warm or chilled for a revitalizing, nutrient-packed — and visually stunning — meal.
Craving a bowl of savory potato soup but don’t want all the calories and fat that comes with it? Stir up Creamy Cauliflower Soup, instead. This 30-minute meal gets its creaminess from the cauliflower and white beans, which also provide a good source of fiber and protein — to fill you up and thaw you out on a cold winter day.
