Top Rated Soup Recipes

It seems appropriate to start the celebration with celebration soup. I made this soup up as a teenager, inspired by the traditional Paprika Stew and the kinds of soups my grandmother and mother would prepare, and over the years it grew into a family favorite. Now we make it whenever we have something to celebrate, hence the name. Red and black pepper are auspicious seasonings and are very popular in Romani cuisine, and this soup is basically a festival of pepper, paprika, and other beneficial spices, like turmeric and cinnamon, which are especially valued in Ayurvedic medicine. The combination of fresh herbs, earthy spices, sweet veggies, and spicy pepper is absolutely gorgeous. Adjust the heat for your palate — this version is fairly mild. Read How to Eat Like a Real Gypsy here

Soup
Just picked this recipe up when I was in Iceland from a cookbook called Cool Dishes. I think kids might really like this recipe, and it's relatively healthy too! A dessert soup might tickle their fancy. The book recommends serving this with crumbled rusks.-Kumquat the Cat's friendThis recipe is courtesy of Kumquat the Cat's friend via Food.com.

Do you only associate coconut with the summertime? Think again! Combining coconut with pumpkin makes for a sweet fall flavor you’ll crave all autumn long. This recipe also uses lemongrass, which adds a subtle lemon flavor without the bitter citrus. You can even add spice to the soup by chopping a fresh jalapeño pepper for added spice. Spicy foods are great for your health and have shown to increase life span.

Creamy Tomato-Basil Soup
For a long time, if you asked me what my absolute favorite meal was, I would reply, “Grilled cheese and tomato soup,” without any hesitation.  Now, I have always loved a grilled cheese and still do, with a passion, in fact.  But over the years, I realized that the other half of that duo was just not holding up its end of the bargain. I would dutifully make my can of tomato soup to go with my sandwich, and while it kind of worked as a counterpoint to a perfectly toasty, cheesy sandwich, it mostly just sucked.  I know this is impolitic of me, but regular tomato soup is just so boring.  The terrible mediocrity of it is what made me give up on the idea that grilled cheese and tomato soup was, indeed, my favorite meal.  Something that most closely resembled ketchup water had no place in any of my favorites lists.For more great recipes like this one, visit the but I'm hungry site.

Slow Cooker Sort of Tortilla Soup
This is a super simple, ridiculously healthy, you-probably-already-have-these-ingredients-in-your-kitchen autumn lentil veggie soup recipe.The beauty of this soup is that you can substitute whatever leftover veggies and dry ingredients you have in your pantry and fridge in place of the ones in this recipe. Don’t have kale? That’s fine, throw in some spinach or collard greens. Don’t have zucchini? Try some squash or broccoli instead. You can even change out the lentils and rice for whatever beans and grains you have in your pantry. I’ve totally made this soup with quinoa, chickpeas, whole wheat pasta, and great northern beans before. I’ve even omitted the can of tomatoes when I was out. Totally adaptable, yet it’s still so comforting and delicious.For more recipes like this one, visit Pumpkin and Peanut Butter.

Beet Soup with Ginger
This recipe comes from a damp, cold winter's dinner at Dar Nour — "House of Light" — inside Tanger’s dense, whitewashed Kasbah. In a dining room full of books, intimate photos of the city’s rich literary history, patterned Berber textiles, European antiques, and flickering candles, the silky, scarlet soup was presented in a heavy white tureen. It was smooth and warmingly piquant with ginger and a generous grating of black pepper. Perfect! Away from Tanger and its Mediterranean blues, I have been served very different versions of this soup. On a hot spring night at the edge of the vast palm groves in the southern oasis of Zagora, among dusty, pounded mud-and-straw pisé walls of an ancient house in the medina, the soup came slightly chilled and without the ginger, which allowed the earthy sweetness of the beets to come through stronger. That version tasted as perfect in Zagora as this warm, spicy version did in Tanger. See all beet recipes. Click here to see A Regional Approach to Moroccan Cooking.

"Stracciare means 'to rip to shreds' in Italian, and, indeed, that is how this soup looks after stirring some beaten eggs with some grated cheese in a good chicken broth. Once you have a good chicken broth the rest is easy. Stracciatella is usually served with shredded spinach and beaten egg, but I recall having it with just egg and cheese when spinach was not in season. In the Italy that I grew up in, seasons made a difference, not only in how we dressed, but in what we ate. This a great restorative soup, used in most Italian families." — Lidia Bastianich
