5 Ingredient Soups – National Homemade Soup Day!


Happy National Homemade Soup Day! There’s nothing better than curling up with a warm bowl of soup on a cold winter day and this “holiday” couldn’t have come at a better time, especially with the blizzards hitting our CRAVE locations in Bethesda, Omaha, and Minnesota in the last couple weeks!

We stand behind the best homemade soups being delicious and taking the least amount of effort, so without further ado here’s our list of 5 homemade soups that use only 5 ingredients!

5 Homemade Soups With 5 Ingredients

Skinny Taste’s “Dad’s Cauliflower Soup

This delectable soup can be served as a starter or a main course. Made without cream, it’s a lighter alternative, which we’re all about!

“There is no cream added, the silky texture is simply from pureeing it… Sometimes I add some diced carrots, or even celery – there are no rules here.”


Foodie Crush’s “Thai Pumpkin Soup”

Who says pumpkin soups are exclusive to fall? We’re loving the curry and coconut flavor of this soup and think it’s a perfect way to fight the winter sniffles!

“For poultry lovers, add in 2-3 chicken breasts chopped into bite-size chunks…for vegetarians, add chunks of tofu.”


Alana Satterly’s “Chicken Tortilla Soup”

What we loved about this soup is how low maintenance it is. Prep the ingredients, throw it in a slow cooker for 6 hours, shred the chicken and BAM!


Kitchen Treaty’s “Roasted Carrot Ginger Soup”

When we stumbled upon this recipe for Roasted Carrot Ginger soup, we were intrigued. Carrots and GINGER?

“I had a hunch that this soup wouldn’t need anything other than just a handful of the simplest ingredients: onions, vegetable stock, ginger, cream, and, of course, carrots. Happily, my hunch paid off in the form of a richly hued, zingy little soup that would hold its own among those with twice the ingredients, or more.”


Gluten Free Cream Of Mushroom Soup

And it’s gluten free!


*More SOUP FOR YOU!’s “Pesto Chicken Noodle Soup”

Ok, ok, ok, we know this one has more than 5 ingredients, which is why we made it a bonus, but we’re obsessed with this modern twist on such a classic recipe and just had to share!
