17 Healthy Vegetarian Soups for Weight Loss - Title Image | Hurry The Food Up

Does the idea of healthy vegetarian soup recipes for weight loss make you think sadly of hot bland mush?

If so, you clearly haven’t tried any of these healthy weight loss soups!

Sure, if done badly, soup can make for a pretty dull dinner, but with the right preparation and seasoning, you can make delicious, hearty and healthy soups, which can help you on your journey to weight loss.

For example, there is nothing dull about this Italian-inspired pasta and fagioli soup! Only 323 calories per serving and filled with beans, veg and pasta, this soup makes for a hearty, nutritious and satisfying meal.

If you’re looking for something smoother and cheesier, try out our broccoli and cauliflower soup, which contains a generous helping of cheddar and still only comes to 267 calories per serving.

And that’s just a taste of what we’ve got cooking!

Soup up your diet with healthy vegetarian soup recipes for weight loss

What makes the difference between standard soups and healthy weight loss soups? It’s all in the detail!

With healthy soup recipes vegetarian soups are already a great place to start, because they are bulky and filling but generally low in calories, as their bulk comes from liquid and veg rather than calorie dense stodge or red meat.

However, if you’re looking for vegetarian diet soups, you’ve got to check out the nutritional data of a soup recipe to check there aren’t any cheeky ingredients in there, raising the fat / calorie count!

How to make the perfect weight loss soup!

These healthy vegetarian soup recipes for weight loss have the perfect combo of calories, protein, fat and carbs to optimise their contribution to your weight loss journey.

These are all low calorie vegetable soups, at less than 500 calories per serving. Keeping calories at around this level makes sure these soups keep you full, while not tipping you into an excess of calories.

We have also made sure that none of these recipes contain any more than 15g fat. While fat is important to your diet it is also very ‘calorie dense’. This means it contains a lot more calories (over double the amount per gram in fact!) than carbs or protein, making it less helpful when we’re on a calorie limit.

Each of these soups also contains at least 14g protein, because protein keeps you full and helps contribute to muscle maintenance.

So go forth, to chop, blend, simmer and dip your way through 17 of the best healthy vegetarian soups for weight loss!
