Six simple 5-ingredient soup recipes

All too often these days, I receive emails from readers who are looking for QUICK and EASY recipes with FEW ingredients.  I completely understand the need.  Times are busy.  Budgets are tight.  And no one wants to spend an hour in the kitchen after a long day at work.  Here are SIX SIMPLE 5-INGREDIENT SOUP RECIPES to make dinner preparation a little easier and to give your wallet somewhat of a break.


5-INGREDIENT TOMATO SOUP
: This 10 minutes soup recipe comes from The Picky Palate Cookbook. It’s creamy and delicious with basil and garlic mixed in too.

5-INGREDIENT POTATO SOUP: This soup recipe is as easy as it gets! But don’t you worry — it is still super flavorful, thick, and oh-so-comforting.

5-INGREDIENT SKINNY CREAMY CAULIFLOWER SOUP: Here’s a warm, delicious bowl of soup that is so light you can serve this as a first course for dinner or with a half sandwich for lunch.

5-INGREDIENT THAI PUMPKIN SOUP:  This soup recipe delivers a curry and coconut flavor combination more often expected from a pumpkin soup recipe with far more ingredients.

5-INGREDIENT WHITE CHICKEN CHILI:  This comforting chili is so easy to whip up, and it’s perfect for a chilly evening.

5-INGREDIENT ROASTED CARROT GINGER SOUP:  Use leftover baby carrots in this super-simple, slightly sweet and wonderfully creamy soup recipe.
