What Is A Spring Soup?

Well, spring soup is a vibrant bowl of soup that is made with vegetables that are harvested in spring. Although you may find most of these vegetables frozen at your local grocery store all year round, they won’t taste as good as the fresh produce from your farmers market.

Some of the most common spring vegetables used in soups include asparagus, peas, spinach, kale, collard greens, mustard greens, and turnip greens. Arugula, artichokes, beets, carrots, radish, spring onions, potatoes, and Swiss chard are also harvested in spring and are great for soups. 

15 Delightfully Healthy Spring Soups Worth Trying

Some of the following soup recipes I have personally made and others I’ve gathered from around the web. I choose these recipes by looking through the ingredients, if it’s not healthy or packed with sodium, saturated fat, and calories, I don’t add them.
