Healthy Winter Soup Recipes to Keep You Warm

Comfort Food That's Good For You

During the blistering cold days of winter when all you want to do is curl up by the fire, there's nothing that feeds the soul quite like a warm bowl of soup.

Healthy Winter Soups

There are great recipes for making hearty and flavorful soups this winter.

This season, just because you’re staying true to the Pritikin Diet and Eating Plan, doesn’t mean you have to forego all of your favorite comfort foods. In fact, our Pritikin chefs are real pros at taking the most traditionally satisfying dishes and putting a healthy and gourmet spin on them.

Healthy Comfort Food

With advice from our experts, a few creative zests and spices, and a little extra planning, you can learn how to incorporate your favorite comfort foods into your healthy eating plan. One of the best ways to add heartiness and flavor to a meal without adding extra fat, sodium or calories is to add a lot of root vegetables, such as pumpkin, carrots and turnips, Pritikin’s Chef Anthony Stewart explained. Even adding spinach to entrees such as soup is a great way to add more nutrients.

“Rather than use fat in your comfort food, fill your meals with a lot of fresh vegetables,” advised Chef Anthony. “This way, you will still be able to enjoy your favorite dish, but in a healthier fashion. And what’s more, you’ll feel full afterward.”

Adding grains and legumes such as brown rice, quinoa or lentils to your stews is another way to make them a little bit more robust. This season, try out the two seasonal-inspired recipes below. Both make four servings.

Jamaican Red Beans

This mouth-watering, wholesome soup is a perfect menu item to incorporate into your healthy eating plan for the winter. Packed with lots of root vegetables, big flavor and a kick of chipotle, it will have you warmed up on even the chilliest of days. Best of all, the red beans give you a boost of fiber and protein.

“This recipe is a winter soup that is rich, filling and satisfying,” said Chef Anthony. “People really enjoy it!”

Instructions
  1. Wash lentils.* In a large stockpot, combine lentils and all ingredients except basil, thyme, and vegetable juice. Bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add remaining ingredients, adjust seasonings as desired, and simmer 15 more minutes.
Recipe Notes

* To wash lentils thoroughly, place them in a large bowl and fill it with cold water. Scoop up handfuls of the lentils and scrub them by rubbing your palms together. The water will likely turn a little dirty. Drain the water and refill with clean water. Swish lentils in water and drain.  Repeat until the water runs clear.
