5 Delicious Low-sodium Soups

Mulligatawny Soup

The name sounds Southern, but this spicy soup recipe actually originated from Southern India, which accounts for its unexpectedly delicious ingredient combinations. First you take your veggies -- celery, carrots, onion, garlic and green pepper -- and cook them for about five minutes. Then, you add your spice mix, which is made of curry, nutmeg and flour. Reduced sodium chicken broth cuts out a ton of salt and the addition of tomato and apple sweeten it up. Rice adds a hearty starch to this delicious soup, which is highly seasoned but still manages to be low in sodium.
