Wondering what’s for dinner tonight? So are we.


Our go-to dinner in a pinch? Soup!


There are so many amazing soup recipes on our site that you can get on the table in no time. While the soup is boiling, make a quick quesadilla or grilled cheese sandwich and dinner is served!


  1. Cauliflower Chestnut Soup by Sara and Yossi Goldstein
    It’s slowly starting to get a little colder out, and everyone is craving a bowl of soup! This creamy cauliflower soup tastes like it spent all day simmering on the stove, but takes only around 30 minutes and five ingredients to make!
  2. Seri’s Sweet Potato Soup by Rivky Golombeck
    Kudos to Seri Deyo for this super simple recipe that her entire family loves. Another winner straight from Israel. Thanks Seri!
  3. Hungarian Mushroom Soup by Beth WarrenBrrr, the cold front is coming. It’s natural to want to keep cozy with food. Our body releases heat through digestion, but we can achieve that deliciously warm feeling with any food, including healthy ones. And what better way to add more heat than with a soup? Bonus: Mushrooms are the star in this recipe, and their immune-boosting powers will also help you fight getting sick this winter.

    I chose a Hungarian flavor profile for this soup because I absolutely love this seasoning blend in soups and stews. Plus, there’s a boost of protein from the milk and sour cream, with nondairy alternatives that keep it just as creamy and tasty.

    My clients are always asking for a plant-based side that can help keep them full, and this soup is the perfect snack or a pairing for your meal!

  4. Sweet Potato Soup by Yael Dagan

  5. Vegetable Julienne Soup from the Dining In Cookbook
    You may puree this soup for a different texture. To obtain thin carrot and turnip strips, try using a peeler!
  6. French Onion Tomato Soup from the Dining In Cookbook
    There are soup lovers who would give a fortune for this recipe. You don’t have to, so dig in and enjoy!
  7. Curried Lentil Soup (Instant Pot) by Pamela EllgenIf you think lentil soup is boring, think again! This spicy, savory soup packs a flavor punch from curry powder, plenty of garlic, and a tangy salsa to go on top. If you don’t feel like pulling together the salsa ingredients, a squeeze of lemon juice will do the trick. This recipe is adapted from Vedge, one of my favorite vegan cookbooks. This soup is easy to begin with, but the Instant Pot makes it a cinch.


    The dry ingredients for the soup can be prepared in advance and stored in a 4-cup mason jar until you’re ready to cook.

  8. Blender Tomato Red Pepper Soup by Tamar Teitelbaum
    This soup is so simple. Just throw everything into the blender. If you have a good blender, that is really the only step. This soup uses pantry ingredients, but tastes fresh and delicious as if you picked all the ingredients yourself.
  9. Easy Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese by Bassie Parnes
    I love this recipe because it doesn’t really require measurements. You can adjust the amounts of vegetables based on your personal preferences, and you can adjust the seasoning when you blend it. If you like a thinner soup, add more broth, and if you like it creamier, add more cream.

  10. Asian Chicken-Noodle Soup by Bassie Parnes
    If this isn’t the most comforting recipe, then I don’t know what is. It hits all the right notes on a cold night, and it’s a full meal in a bowl. Enjoy!
  11. Creamless Cream of Potato Soup by Esti Waldman
    Esti prepares this soup so one of her children, who is allergic to dairy, can enjoy something creamy. But the whole family enjoys it!
  12. Pizza Soup by Victoria Dwek
    Ever since Kids Cooking Made Easy was published, this has been one of my kids’ favorite dinners to help make and eat. I do the added step of blending the onion into the soup to get rid of the “bits” kids don’t like. Blending also infuses the soup with more flavor and makes it extra creamy.
  13. Cream of Carrot Soup from the Dining In Cookbook
    Creamy texture, pretty orange color and great flavor!
  14. Parsnip Sunchoke Soup by Sara and Yossi GoldsteinThis creamy, velvety soup is a comforting addition to any meal. Sunchokes taste slightly nutty, and they pair well with the earthy parsnips. I love using beef jerky as a garnish to any creamy-looking soup—it’s so delicious!


    The sunchoke is also known as a Jerusalem Artichoke, although it has absolutely no connection to the Ir HaKodesh. Ironically enough, the first time I tasted it was in Jerusalem! – Sara

  15. Savory Cauliflower Soup from the Dining In Cookbook
    Yummy! Cauliflower falls apart, so you get a chunky soup with great flavor. Quick, easy, and nutritious.
  16. Vegan Thai Noodle Soup by Kelly Cohen
    Creamy spicy Asian soup, served with noodles.
  17. Tomato and Spinach Tortellini Soup by Esty Wolbe
    Tortellini soup is a complete meal in a bowl that’s on Esty Wolbe’s meal rotation all throughout the winter! Watch Esty Wolbe cook up her latest brilliant, one-pot dinner idea.
  18. Tomato Soup by Nechama Golding
    Rich tomato soup made from scratch makes a great weeknight supper. Made with coconut milk, this soup is totally dairy-free. This recipe includes a quick preparation for homemade garlic croutons.
  19. Creamy Turmeric Cauliflower Soup by Dorothy Calimeris and Ana Reisdorf
    Turmeric is the darling of the anti-inflammatory spices. For best absorption by the body, turmeric should be combined with pepper. This soup gets its creamy texture from coconut milk, but other nondairy milk can be used instead.
  20. Speedy Ramen Japanese Noodle Soup by Nadine Horn and Jörg Mayer
    Homemade ramen soup is totally different from the highly processed packages you find in any corner store. No synthetic flavor enhancers for us! We pack our ramen broth full of fresh vegetables, miso, and tofu.
