Feeling sluggish from all that champagne and party mix? Resolved to eat healthier in the New Year? Thought so. Begin by filling up on nutritious, vitamin-rich veggie soups. Here are 10 recipes to get you started. 

Lemony Lentil and Greens Soup // Packed with protein, fiber, and vitamins A and C, this citrusy soup is comprised of just eight ingredients, making it an easy weeknight meal.

Vegan Sweet Potato Black Bean Pumpkin Chili // This chili is super-filling and nourishing thanks to generous servings of sweet potato, pumpkin, tomato, and black bean. Top it with avocado, tortilla chips, and cilantro for a Southwestern flair.

Turkey Soup with Zucchini Noodles // Chicken-noodle is often touted as the go-to soup during winter months, but this turkey soup with zucchini noodles might have it beat. For folks with allergies or specific diets, it’s low-carb, gluten-free, and Paleo-friendly.

Vegetable Beef Soup // A lighter version of your typical winter stew, this soup is filled with nine different vegetables. Pair with a thick slice of Italian bread to absorb the bay leaf and garlic-flavored broth.

Pumpkin Soup with Smoky Roasted Chickpeas // Prepared without butter or cream, this soup is smooth and savory without excessive fats. Plus, smoky, roasted chickpeas add the perfect amount of crunch.

Vegan Chunky Tomato Soup // A silky tomato soup that packs an entire half-head of cabbage and 28 ounces of roasted tomatoes is a fabulous cold-weather fix.

Shiitake Miso Soup // This isn’t your typical sushi restaurant miso soup. Filled with cabbage, mushrooms, and carrots, it’s a substantial meal that can be enjoyed all on its own.

Kale Egg Drop Soup // Forego your kale chips in lieu of this winter soup, which gets its flavor from soy sauce, ginger and lemon. The whole recipe comes together in less than 20 minutes.

Lentil and Vegetable Soup // With nine different spices, this hearty soup is wonderfully bold and blends beautifully with its array of veggies.

Southwestern Roasted Cauliflower “Bisque” // This Tex-mex inspired “bisque” gets its creaminess from an entire head of roasted cauliflower. Get creative with the toppings; the soup base provides the perfect backdrop for everything from heart-healthy avocado to refreshing pico de gallo.
