Ramen. Take those little packages and add what ever ingredients you want. Quick, easy and light.

Miso is good too, a lot of sodium though.

I don't really want meat in the soup and it must be really lite. V8 is a good shortcut as well as organic beetroot juice with added spices and vinegar for a cheats Barszcz! It you want to try it I posted a recipe for Barszcz.
If you have any more combo's please tell me
I just want lite soups more as a savoury drink since I don't really like sweet things and eating hearty thick soups all day won't be a good thing!
Try V-8 with some chunky salsa, seasoned like a Bloody Mary for a quick chunky vegetable gazpacho.

Add some cold cooked shrimp for a real treat.

That sounds good, I'll try it for sure!

Someone here at DC came up with the idea of the shrimp. It was awesome!

We have a little Portuguese Cafe that makes a Gazpacho with shrimp and it's really good! But I think I'll leave the shellfish for when we eat out, I always over or under cook it

Thank you all for the fabulous ideas! I was getting really tired of all my own creations, it's nice to try someone else's recipes once in a while.

For a light winter soup, take a look at 'bisques'. Usually they're made with shellfish like lobster, shrimp, crab and crawfish, and as they're strained, are fairly light. but there are also all kinds of recipes for veggie bisques that would be even lighter.
Chowders are another category of soups that can be made 'light'.

I'll look it up thanks for the idea. Didn't even think of Bisque.
