Is soup healthy?

Like with any meal, the health benefits of soup are dependent on the way the dish is prepared. Luckily, vegan soups are traditionally heavy in vegetables, making them a flavorful, healthy meal.


To make your autumn soups healthier, opt for recipes heavy in vegetables and low in sodium. Thick creamy soups (such as those made with coconut cream or cornstarch) are best in moderation. These soups owe their texture to thickening agents, and while these ingredients can be part of a healthy diet, the amount needed for thicker soups is often high. 

If you prefer a thick soup, you can easily thicken the texture with legumes. The health pros at Healthline also recommend dairy-free yogurt. Not only does this help achieve your desired texture, but it also enhances your meal’s nutritional profile.

Health benefits of soup

Incorporating soups into your weekly meal repertoire is an easy way to incorporate vegetables into your diet. In fact, people who regularly eat soup have better overall diets due to their increased intake of protein and fiber.

Due to some soups’ high fiber content, this can also lead to feeling fuller longer. Additionally, soup has a high water content and helps keep you hydrated.
