Clean eating recipes may sound like a fad diet or foodie trend, but it's so much more than that. These clean eating recipes come together in less than an hour and all use simple ingredients that you likely have on hand or can easily pick up at your next trip to the neighborhood grocery store. “Clean Eating” expert, Diane Welland, selected simple weeknight recipes from the Cooking Light collection that work for those who are trying to eat clean. Once you try them and see how easy it can be to fit into the clean eating recipe lifestyle, you might never go back.
Carrot Soup with Yogurt
Nutritious, delicious, and comforting, soups are a clean eating mainstay when prepared from fresh ingredients. Vegetable purees in particular are a great way to enjoy fresh-tasting creamy soups without relying on heavy cream and butter for flavor. In this recipe, the addition of a dollop of tart yogurt at the end makes a good contrast to the sweetness of the carrots and gives a smooth velvety richness to the soup. While we suggest serving this soup warm, as written in the recipe, readers suggested enjoying the leftovers chilled. Pair with a green salad for a filling dinner.
