Late December. Midst of winter. Christmas has come and gone once again. The celebrations are winding down and the mountain of snacks and sweets we’ve all accumulated are slowly diminishing.

But with all the indulgence of the season, and with New Year around the corner, many of us are starting to think about how best to look after our bodies through the coming winter months. And top of the list (at least for us) when it comes to food is soup…

For pure soothing satisfaction and nourishment, it really is hard to beat a steaming bowl of homemade soup. It’s food for the soul like no other, and there’s a soup out there to suit all tastes, preferences, and dietary requirements. So to kickstart the new year the right way, here are 4 healthy and nutritious soup recipes to keep you warm and happy.


Sweet potato and coconut soup (BBC Good Food)

A simple and nutritious soup. You can have this one ready to serve in just 20 minutes. The sweet potato and coconut milk make for a rich, creamy, and satisfying combination. And the addition of Thai curry paste provides an extra boost of flavour!

Sweet potatoes are also a source of vitamin A, vitamin C, and manganese. And coconut milk is said to have anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties.


Turmeric, carrot, and parsnip soup (The Inspired Home)

Loaded with turmeric and cinnamon, both of which are well known for their health-giving properties, this is a winter soup par excellence. Because really, what’s more wintery than a bit of parsnip and carrot (Brussels sprouts aside…)?


Easy 1-Pot Tomato Soup

Sometimes all you need is a bowl of good old-fashioned tomato soup. It’s a nourishing, comforting, crowd-pleasing classic. And this one-pot version from the Minimalist Baker is absolutely perfect: minimum fuss, minimum equipment, maximum taste!


Curried Beetroot Soup With Tandoori Chickpeas

Surely there are few things in the world that look as healthy and nutritious as beetroot soup? There’s just something about that deeply vibrant purple that speaks to the soul. It’s goodness in a bowl!

Beetroots are one of the few vegetables that contain the antioxidant betalains, which is what gives beets their colour.
