Essential 6 Ingredient Soups

minted pea soup with pastrami

When temperatures drop, nothing is more comforting than cozying up with a hot bowl of soup. As a personal chef, I find myself making these three recipes weekly for my clients, and who would ever guess they only require 6 ingredients? These soups take no time to prepare and freeze wonderfully for an easy, last minute dinner. Immersion blenders are essential here, creating a creamy consistency without the extra calories.

Minted Pea Soup

This soup couldn’t be easier and takes minutes to prepare. I love making this soup during the summer season as well when fresh peas are abundant and fresh. The flavors are crisp and bold creating a fabulous soup that works any day of the week, and any time of the year.

Creamy’ Asparagus Soup

Asparagus is chock full of vitamins and antioxidants and what better way to get a healthy dose of nourishment than in a delicious soup? The vibrant color of this soup looks elegant when served, and the flavor from the basil complements the asparagus perfectly. Your guests will love this one, that is, of course, if you’re willing to share!

Curried Butternut Squash Soup

Nothing compares to the texture of silky butternut squash soup. It’s velvety and incredibly comforting on a cold winter day. I make this soup for many of my client’s kids. They adore this soup and don’t even realize that they’re eating a healthy vegetable. If available, buy pre-cut butternut squash-huge time saver!
