I could eat soup every day, and sometimes I do! I included some of my favorites here, but trust me, I have more to come. This roundup includes all kinds of soup recipes, from cheese soups, beef soups, chicken soups, vegetable soups, and chilled soups for the summertime. I organized them into the following categories so you can easily find exactly what you're looking for.
- Cheese Soups
- Chicken and Turkey Soups
- Chilled Soups
- Beef and Pork Soups
- Vegetable, Bean, and Lentil Soups
- Seafood Soups
How do you make the best soup?
The best soup recipes start with homemade stock, when possible. If not, my favorite brand is Kitchen Basics. Use fresh vegetables and herbs, cooking them until they are just tender for non-puréed soup, or very tender for puréed soups. Don't add salt while cooking, let people add it at the table if they want it, to keep your soups lower in sodium.
Most soups freeze well, so make a lot and freeze it in serving size containers that can be heated in the microwave for an easy lunch. I often freeze soups in larger containers and reheat the whole thing for a dinner I don't have to cook that night.
What can I serve with soup?
Salads, crusty bread, and cornbread are great choices to serve with your favorite soup. Both red and white wines are great choices for a drink, pairing red with beef soups and white with chicken soups. Tequila based drinks like a margarita pairs well with some Mexican soups.
