This silky puréed soup is surprisingly healthy — there’s no heavy cream or dairy in it, just a handful of toasted walnuts to thicken it up. Serve it warm or cold, depending on the weather and your mood. GET THE RECIPE

2. Chilled Roasted Red Pepper Soup


This light and refreshing chilled soup is chockfull of veggies, like slow-roasted red bell peppers, vine-ripened tomatoes, onions and garlic. But the real real magic is in the seasoning: fragrant fresh rosemary, anise seeds — which have a flavor reminiscent of fennel — and a splash of balsamic vinegar. I promise it will wake up your taste buds! GET THE RECIPE
