    I freaking LOVE soup and how fitting that today is the first day of fall. Fall to me is the unofficial start of soup weather and I notice it makes my meal rotation a lot more often then it does in the spring and summer. This gorgeous cookbook has an impressive and tasty number of healthy soup recipes that aim to boost immunity and restore health. Some are classics and some are new (to me) soups that I can't wait to share with friends! There are eight different types of soups found in this cookbo I freaking LOVE soup and how fitting that today is the first day of fall. Fall to me is the unofficial start of soup weather and I notice it makes my meal rotation a lot more often then it does in the spring and summer. This gorgeous cookbook has an impressive and tasty number of healthy soup recipes that aim to boost immunity and restore health. Some are classics and some are new (to me) soups that I can't wait to share with friends! There are eight different types of soups found in this cookbook: hearty and healthy, stocks and broths, classics and favorites, vegetable, grain and bean, fish and shellfish, poultry, and meaty. As a vegetarian I skipped over the last few sections although I feel like some could be easily adapted. There were even some vegan ones included! The recipes I've attempted thus far (all of which have been $$$ in the bank!) are: creamy pea soup, golden vegetable soup, potato cauliflower leek soup, classic three bean chili, and spicy coconut-pumpkin soup. I wish there were more pictures, but really I can't complain. I love this cookbook and my fall and winter is going to be full of the tastiest soup!

    Lots of Yummy Looking and Sounding Soup Recipes I adore soups. I always have, and for 10 years, I was lucky enough to live in a place where I could have soup all year long as it never got terribly hot in the summer. So I am apt to pick up soup cookbooks that I see. The concept of having the focus be on healing soups intrigued me. You can put so many wonderful ingredients, herbs, and spices into soups that make them more healthy, taking advantage of the ingredients' natural properties. This book ha Lots of Yummy Looking and Sounding Soup Recipes I adore soups. I always have, and for 10 years, I was lucky enough to live in a place where I could have soup all year long as it never got terribly hot in the summer. So I am apt to pick up soup cookbooks that I see. The concept of having the focus be on healing soups intrigued me. You can put so many wonderful ingredients, herbs, and spices into soups that make them more healthy, taking advantage of the ingredients' natural properties. This book has some amazing soups in it, some classics as well as some more unusual ones. As a vegetarian, I appreciate how many plant-based dishes this cookbook has, even some vegan ones. And the ones that I saw certainly gave me hints on how to veganize some of my own soup recipes. For the meat-eaters, there are plenty of soups as well. Except for the initial section—with a variety of traditional soups from egg drop soup to minestrone—all the other ones are grouped according to their main ingredients. I liked, too, that each recipe had a nice headnote as well as a variety of hints and tips at the end. I love cookbooks that explain the recipe, important terms, or give directions like how to make a soup freezable, for example. I’m a person who loves to read cookbooks like a novel, and this cookbook is eminently readable. And despite the title of the book suggesting that this is about healing soups, I didn't really see much emphasis on this throughout the book or the recipes. Here or there, they would mention the healthy properties of some ingredients. Other than that, there really wasn't much about health, at least to my mind. But the recipes look and sound amazing, and the next time cold season rolls around, I will definitely be taking many of these for a spin. If you're into soups like I am, you may very well enjoy this book, too.

    Rockridge Press and NetGalley provided me with an electronic copy of The Healing Soup Cookbook. I was under no obligation to review this book and my opinion is freely given.

Readers who love soup should absolutely pick up The Healing Soup Cookbook, for its wide ranging recipes that will inspire and entice. The cookbook authors are dieticians and have carefully balanced each soup to include carbohydrates, proteins, and fats from a myriad of sources. With so many soups, as well as stews, to choose from, readers will be able try new flavor profiles each day of the week. The cookbook is divided into sections, with titles such as: Hearty and Healthy Soups; Stocks and Broths; Classics and Favorites; Vegetable Soups; Grain and Bean Soups; Fish and Shellfish Soups; Poultry Soups; and Meaty Soups and Stews. I enjoyed reading the introduction in the first section, as the authors go through the healing properties of soups, tools and tricks of the trade, the world wide and regional favorites, and the health benefits. Much of this information may be known to some readers, but others will enjoy the knowledge presented through a dietician's lens. As far as the recipes go, the varieties of soups and stews range from the predictable to the unique. All of the classics are here, such as Cream of Mushroom, French Onion, Chicken Noodle, Clam Chowder, and Tomato Basil. Additionally, there are recipes that follow world cuisine properties, such as Hot and Sour, Kimchi Vegetable, Thai-Style Shrimp, and Easy Beef Pho. The more unique recipes range from Spicy Sweet Potato Peanut and Ginger Couscous Meatball, to Spicy Coconut-Pumpkin and Lemon Sorghum Vegetable Soup. There are five star recipes here, but the cookbook is lacking photographs. Ideally, I would love to see pictures of the finished dishes on every page, as the colorful and graphic nature of cookbooks have the power to inspire. On the strength of the recipes alone, I would recommend The Healing Soup Cookbook to other readers.

    This was an excellent collection of soup recipes And I love soup! There were so many ones I can't wait to try. I thought the book was laid out really well, the recipes read in a way that will be easy to follow, the pictures were gorgeous and I loved the additional notes on nutrition, shopping, preparation, storage, etc. This was an excellent collection of soup recipes And I love soup!

    I love this cookbook. In my experience many buzz worthy cookbooks that have been published in recently years are not approachable to the novice chef. While it is filled with delicious recipes for all seasons, my favorite is the selection of broth recipes which I can enjoy with my puppy Betsey!

    There are so many easy to make recipes in this book. My family just loves hearty soups in the winter months. They are very tasty recipes! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book on Net Galley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
