Nothing beats comfort foods, particularly when they come in a creamy liquid form and are consumed during the coldest season of the year. That said, many of us strive to shed the holiday pounds and so it happens, your average comfort soup tends to have a good amount of heavy cream. Deliciously sensuous, heavy cream can be counterintuitive to your waste line. Therefore, I present to you some of my absolute favorite soups that not only taste good, but will get you ready for the string-bikini or speedo you found under the Christmas tree!
Check out these five hearty and healthy soup recipes from celebrity chef George Duran that will keep you and your family warm and well-fed without expanding your waistline this winter.
Coconut Curried Hominy Soup
The benefit of coconut milk is that it’s packed with saturated fats. That’s the good kind of fat that’ll leave you wanting a bit more of this silky soup!
Creamy Tomato Soup with Low-Fat Grilled Cheese Croutons
You thought you couldn’t possibly get your tomato soup fix without some grilled cheese? Think again! The part-skim cheese and non-stick spray assure a lower calorie count, but still pack these croutons with the same expected flavor!
Pesto Pasta Soup
One of my many mottos is “If it’s got pesto — I’m in.” And a delicious dollop of the stuff in the center of this vegetable and pasta soup is the ultimate jumpstart into the fantastic flavor combinations that await.
Roasted Garlic Soup

Souped Up Carrot Soup
Ginger and honey are the secrets that make this the number one requested soup among my friends.
