Holiday feasting is great, but after all that rich food and the endless leftovers, you may be craving dishes filled with healthful vegetables.

Enter soup.

Soups can certainly be rich in their own right, so we’ve selected brothier fare filled with beans and lentils as well as nutrient-rich dark leafy greens and bright carrots.

These meals in a bowl can be just the thing to provide balance during the holiday season.

Haven’t found the right soup for you? We’ve got plenty more in our recipe archives.
