With ENLIGHTENED SOUPS in hand, home cooks will have more than 150 quick, delicious, and innovative options from which to choose. From new takes on classics like chicken soup with herbed dumplings and Tuscan minestrone to innovations like butternut bisque with Gruyere croutons and Hanoi beef noodle soup, ENLIGHTENED SOUPS is filled with choices for any day of the week, any time of the year. Like all of the books in the Enlightened Cooking series, the recipes are straightforward, the ingredients commonly available, and the techniques geared toward the home cook. Every recipe includes a nutritional analysis, and at the back of the book, quick-search appendixes indicate which soups are especially low in fat (fewer than 3 grams per serving), especially low in calories (150 or less per serving), and especially low in total time required (from start to finish). The recipes are divided into pureed, meat, poultry, seafood, vegetable, and legume soups.

From the Publisher:

If one food conjures up comfort, it is homemade soup. A dose of serenity sipped from a spoon, soup is as comforting as home itself.

Homemade soup also comes close to being the perfect meal: easy to make, naturally low in fat, rich with nutrients, and convenient and economical, it is a superfood from most every perspective. That's the heart and soul of Enlightened Soups.

In addition, recent studies indicate that eating a healthful soup produces greater feelings of satisfaction and satiety at meals than a variety of other types of food. Researchers aren't sure why, but speculate that it may have to do with soup's high water content, as well as the piping hot serving temperature, which slows down the speed of eating, allowing time to notice a feeling a fullness.

But while the health news for soup is compelling, the primary reasons you'll want to make each and every soup in this collection are far simpler. First, they are absolutely and unfailingly delicious. Second, they are loaded with healthful ingredients, with a minimum of fat and calories. And third, they are all easy to make in 60 minutes or less.

These recipes honor the classics, but tweak tradition enough to keep them healthful and fresh, making all of these soups modern favorites as well as tried and true friends. Think Lemon Chicken Soup with Fresh Spinach & Pasta, Roasted Vegetable Minestrone, Italian Tortellini-Sausage Soup, Summer Corn & Basil Bisque, and Split Pea with Caramelized Onions.

Enlightened Soups includes a wealth of soups from across the country and around the world, adapted to be healthy and home-cook friendly, with familiar, readily available ingredients. For example, Tunisian Chickpea Soup, Tuscan Farro & Bean Soup, West African Peanut Soup, and Thai Chicken & Coconut Soup. In other words, this slender volume brings you the world in a bowl, one sip and slurp at a time.

It won't take much time or effort to work your way through these recipes, either, because soup-making has an honest minimalism that makes it accessible and appealing to home cooks of every level of ability. Enlightened Soups simplifies things further, offering recipes with particularly straightforward cooking techniques and easy-to-find ingredients, and then categorizing each according to total preparation and cooking time: 20, 30, 45 or 60 minutes.

Finally, all of the recipes are well-tested, and follow recognized, "enlightened" guidelines for healthy eating, including no more than 10 grams of fat per serving, and utilization of healthy fats and oils, lean meats, and plenty of vegetables. In short, each recipe delivers contentment on multiple fronts.

So pull out the pans and enjoy your new collection. For ever-pleasing soups equally at home in the dining room or kitchen, you need look no further than Enlightened Soups , because fast, healthful, delicious soup is always in style. Soup's on!
