One of the most basic and oldest meals known to man are soups. The oldest civilizations have records of a variety of soups made out of meats and vegetables. I’m pretty sure the pre-historic men just kinda tossed loads of meat and veggies into a pot without much seasoning- soup has definitely come a long way since then.
Soups can be very simple or very elaborate depending on the ingredients and flavors used. You can make your soups hot for a cold night or chilled for a warm day. You can also serve your favorite soup with bread or pasta. The possibilities are endless.
With pantry items or fresh veggies and herbs from the market, you can whip up a variety of soups in next to no time for a quick meal at any time of the day. My favorite soup recipes have loads of vegetables, lots of seasonings and a bit of spice.
Here’s a roundup of 20 Clean Eating Soup Recipes to try out.
