Cucumber Soup, Basil, Buttermilk
Cold buttermilk soups are an old-fashioned tradition, a tangy zip for fresh, summer vegetables that need little else. Here, the sweet, grassy mellowness of cucumbers is paired with that summery perfume of basil, distilled into a finishing oil you can keep on hand to drizzle on future soups and salads. It's an irresistible, bright, almost ethereal combination that may well sum up the season. But we didn't stop there; We gave the pairing a tangy jolt with buttermilk and sour cream so that the flavors can't turn listless. If you've got weekend guests for a dinner party this evening, skip this one as a second or third course and consider serving it in shot glasses as a midday pick-me-up on the deck. — Vegetarian Dinner Parties Click Here to See More Soup Recipes

Incredibly flavorful and easy to make, this is an extraordinarily delicious recipe of the Jewish food classic. This recipe substitutes the traditional schmaltz with duck fat for a richer and more indulgent soup.

Yucatán Chicken and Lime Soup
I love making everyday dishes in other countries because what seems ordinary when viewed through our looking glass becomes so different given another country’s flavor palate.  Plus, I love every day. It’s what life is really made of (#deepthoughts). Chicken soup is definitely one of my favorite dishes to reinvent because it’s healthy, comforting and usually very easy, no matter where on the globe you happen to land.This one is no exception, but it does require making your own stock. I know, I know…sometimes you just want to use canned and that’s okay.  Sometimes. In fact, I almost went that route this time. I stood in front of the boxed broth for, no joke, about 3 minutes weighing the pros and cons of doing so for this dish, but given the unique ingredients and methodology required for this particular stock, I decided to suck it up and just do it myself. It wasn’t even a meat stock. It was a veggie stock.  Self, I said, take your lazy pants off.Sopa de Lima is a specialty of the Yucatán given the plethora of limes on the peninsula and the magic, I think, is in the aforementioned stock. This stock is built on pan-roasted (you’ll see in the recipe below) onions and garlic, peppers, limes and spices, and once it’s all melded and happy and cooked through, it packs a spicy punch that will clear your sinuses and wake up your taste buds in a way that no other chicken soup does.  It’s topped with a garnish of lime slices, queso fresca, cilantro and fried tortilla strips for some crunch.  Chicken soup, redefined.For more great recipes like this one, visit the The Hungary Buddha.

There's no better way than to warm up to a hot bowl of soup during the cold weather. The porcini mushrooms are softened and complement the crispy shallots and herbs in the soup. Marcus Samuelsson recommends you pair the soup with the Penfolds Bin & Cabernet Shiraz.

It's cold outside and all you want is a hot, warm meal. This soup is perfect for those days. The creamy texture blends well with the softened mushrooms, and the other herbs give it an earthy flavor. Chef Marcus Samuelsson recommends you pair this dish with Penfolds Bin 8 Cabernet Shiraz.

Grammie’s Noodle Soup
If you have a leftover ham bone in the freezer, you can use it and speed up the cooking time to just 45 minutes. If you have the time to cook the broth from the hocks, however, that’s best. The flavor the hocks impart is just incredible. Recipe courtesy of David Venable, host of QVC's cooking show In the Kitchen with David.

Broccoli Soup
Inspired by a soup from Urth Caffé in L.A. that I was minorly (read: majorly) obessed with when I lived there many years ago, I decided to create one of my own instead of just longing for it from afar. The beauty of the soup is that it was dairy-free; they used potatoes to thicken it instead of heavy cream — which is exactly what I did with this broccoli classic.  To add a little creaminess to my broccoli and cheese soup, I decided to top it with grated Cheddar and, as a classic fat kid move, cut up cubes of cheese and tossed them in the bowl so that one out of every five spoonfuls ended up having a melted, cheesy surprise (my ratio might be off... ). Feel free to do the same, or skip the cheese to make it completely dairy-free.  Click here to see more Warm Winter Soup recipes.

Split Pea Soup
I love split pea soup, and I have for as long as I can remember. I wasn't a super fussy eater as a kid but I think we all remember the things we didn't like, even if over the years our tastes have changed and we're more adventurous as adults. I'm sort of surprised that this soup isn't on that list of "no like" as a kid, but I remember loving both split pea and the even uglier brown lentil soup. Go figure right? Like the ugly duckling, this soup has its beautiful side, but you have to taste it to make that discovery. Rich with the mirepoix blend of sautéed onion, carrots, and celery, I've always done one thing that I think has this simple mixture stand head and shoulders above the others I've had. It's simple, too… I substitute chicken stock for the water that is most often called for when making a bean soup. Wait… guess there are a few more things I do differently! See all pea recipes.
