These Quick and Easy Soups (including meatless and vegan options!) can all be made in under an hour, so you can enjoy a healthy, hearty meal even on your busiest weeknights!
Warming soups are the perfect fall and winter comfort food, but many soups take hours to make.
These soups are super filling on their own, but if you’d like, you can pair these soups with a simple side salad and crusty bread for a more well rounded meal.
Almost all of these soups can be tweaked for your vegetarian or vegan diet by simply replacing chicken broth with vegetable broth and omitting cream and cheese or replacing them with vegan options, and many of these recipes provide suggestions for doing just that.
