As soon as the weather gets cooler, my friends and I are pretty much always game for sharing a big pot of soup. When we gather to meet during the week, we take turns making different pots of soup that we can share. Turkey chili, minestrone, creamy pumpkin, chicken tortilla—the list goes on. And although we love to drown our soup with all kinds of toppings and dip fresh-baked slices of sourdough bread into our bowls, soup is still a relatively healthy meal to enjoy during the season. In fact, there are numerous soup recipes out there that can even help with your weight loss goals—if that’s something you’re looking for.
From slow cooker soups to quick chilis and copycat restaurant favorites, here are some of the best soup recipes to make this fall that can even help you with weight loss. Then, be sure to check out our list of the 100 Easiest Recipes to Make for even more healthy meal inspiration.
