The best soup recipes for the cold season ahead!
I love soup. Like… a lot. I know, it’s not the most exciting food group in the world – but when you live in a city that has cold weather for at least 7 months of the year, a pot of hot soup on the stove makes it not only bearable, but cozy and lovely.
I’m always open to trying new recipes, but to start this new soup season, I thought I’d round up my go-to favorites. The only one this list doesn’t include is my chicken noodle soup – which is only because I haven’t written the recipe out! Don’t worry, I have big plans to fix that. (Keep an eye out the week before Thanksgiving – you can make it with leftover turkey after the big day instead of making chicken for it!) Until then, meet your new favorite soups!
The Best Soup Recipes For Cold Weather
Pasta Fagioli (My Recipe!)
This is my #1 favorite soup, hands down. I think it’s because my Mom and Nana always used to make it, so there’s a nostalgic element to it… but it’s also DELICIOUS. I grew up making it vegetarian, but after adding sausage to it last year, I can confirm that it’s awesome both ways!
We just tried this a few weeks ago and it’s a major winner! I love that the lemon and egg mixture makes the soup creamy without any cream – such a cool trick!
Turkey Chili (My Recipe!)
If we’re having people over for Football Sunday, you can be almost positive this is cooking in my kitchen! You can make it in a slow cooker or just simmer it on your stove. Either way, it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser!
I actually forgot about this one and got so excited when I discovered it again because it’s SO easy! All you have to do it put everything in a slow cooker… that’s it. It’s the perfect meal prep recipe for the work week!
Healthy Tomato Soup (My Recipe!)
Love tomato soup, but always hungry after? I add pureed onions, red peppers and white beans to this one, so it’s thicker, creamier, and filled with more protein and fiber!
I discovered this recipe YEARS ago when they featured it with shells instead of cellantani – and I’ve been making it that way ever since! I call it tomato-less pasta e fagioli (even though they don’t – ha!) because it’s totally different than the pasta fagioli I grew up with. The broth is rich and savory and cozy and you’re going to be obsessed with it… trust me!
Vegetable Quinoa Soup (My Recipe!)
This is my go-to when I need a refresh! It’s the perfect work week lunch when holiday parties dominate the weekends. There’s nothing but good-for-you ingredients in there!
This was one of the first recipes I made with my instant pot – and it’s one of the main reasons we love it! The perfect quick weeknight meal that also makes great leftovers.
