Tis the season for all things cozy & warming and I am here. for. it.
Yes, I absolutely love summer and the heat but I truly thrive when I’m cooking with delicious fall flavors. I’m already game planning an epic Ambitious Thanksgiving 2020 for you all and you know I don’t mess around when it comes to Thanksgiving menus. In the meantime, let’s talk cozy soups!
I rounded up over 20 of the best soup recipes to make all fall and winter long. You’ll find tons of vegetarian soups, ones with chicken and even my mom’s famous beef stew. I broke these healthy soup recipes down into tomato based soups, chicken noodle remakes, hearty stews, lightened up classics, golden soups and my favorite winter squash soups. There’s something for everyone here — even if you aren’t a soup lover like me!
Tips for making the best soup recipes
- Season to taste. While these soups, of course, have spices all measured out, remember to add salt & pepper (or spicy flavors) to your liking. Everyone’s salt preferences are a bit different, so this is up to you! I also recommend using a low sodium chicken broth so that you can control the salt in the recipe.
- Freeze for later. Soup makes for an incredible, freezer-friendly meal! You should find freezing instructions within each recipe, but you’ll basically let your soup cool complete, place it in freezer-safe containers or bags, and freeze for up to 2-3 months. I recommend adding noodles when reheating!
- Customize your soup. One of the best parts about cooking soup is how easy it is to customize. Feel free to mix up some of these recipes using different veggies and proteins. They’re usually very easy to make vegan or vegetarian!
Whether you love broth-based soups or creamy ones, savory soups or ones with a hint of sweetness, take a scroll and find your new favorite soup recipes to make this season. Enjoy, xo!
