Soups are a great way to eat healthy. A lot of vegetables can be thrown into a large pot along with a little meat and a few fresh herbs to make a quick and satisfying meal with very few calories. What is better than a steaming hot bowl of soup on a cold winter night? Fresh herbs add tons of flavor but if none are on hand dried will always do. When fresh vegetables are out of season, frozen can work just as well.
The recipes in this book range from light, creamy soups to hearty and spicy stews. For a quick week night meal, prepare the “Easy and Delicious Tomato Pesto Soup”, or for a touch of spice try the “Quick and Easy Chili”. Add a slice of freshly toasted artisan bread, cornbread, or crackers, prepare a quick garden salad, and a meal is on the table. I hope this collection will inspire you to stay in and cook as well as experiment with some of your own recipes.
