Thanks to their accommodating structure, homemade soups can be composed solely of the best ingredients — no fillers, additives, refined sugar or preservatives, just the good stuff! When you start thinking about soup in this optimistic way, you’ll be amazed at how much goodness you can pack into every pot by focusing on seasonally available and beneficial foods.

In late winter and early spring, your most nourishing soups will inevitably include fresh greens, herbs, roots, onion-family plants, cruciferous vegetables, like broccoli, and also perhaps some sweet fall fruits that have lasted through the cold months. You’ll add these staples to a healthful broth — vegetable, mushroom, miso or bone broth — and season to your heart’s content with power-packed spices and delicious, creamy fats. Think of soup toppings such as chopped, toasted nuts and seeds; thin slices of fruits and vegetables; and drizzles of cream and pesto as yet another way to superfood-ize your meal while adding textural contrast.

If you focus on using potent ingredients, the infinite variety of beautiful concoctions you create will provide energy, help keep blood sugar balanced, improve immunity, prevent disease and contribute to longevity. Plus, everyone knows there’s little in the world more comforting than a bowl of homemade soup!
