Guy's Ginger-Carrot Soup
Happy National Soup Month!

Celebrate National Soup Month by staying warm (and healthy!) with Food Network chefs’ best low-cal soups, from the latest issue of Food Network Magazine.

Guy’s carrot, ginger and potato soup (pictured above) has less than 200 calories per serving. Top with low-fat Greek yogurt and pine nuts for a creamy-crunchy combination.

Add a new soup to your go-to list. Full of chiles, peppers and shrimp, we guarantee you’ll love this Spicy Shrimp Broth from Marcela Valladolid.

Emeril’s take on the classic chicken soup has mint, lemon and red pepper flakes. Don’t forget the cayenne pepper for an extra kick.

Swiss chard, carrots, cannellini beans and spinach come together in Bobby’s hearty Minestrone With Parmigiano-Reggiano for a delicious dish that has less than 300 calories.

Ellie’s lightened-up New! New England Clam Chowder is anything but boring. Canadian bacon gives it subtle smoky tones, while hot sauce takes the flavor to a whole new level.

Take your favorite fatty foods and turn them into a healthier snack: hummus. Chickpeas, tahini (a paste made from ground sesame seeds) lemon juice and a few seasonings are all you need to create delicious dips at home. Hummus is as easy to customize as it is to make. Try Food Network Magazine’s version of sour cream and onion chips, pizza and buffalo wings in hummus form — each serving (2 tablespoons) has less than 50 calories.
