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

South Dakota: Pheasant Noodle Soup
As the best place in the country to hunt wild pheasant, we imagine that this gamey bird has ended up in a pot or two of soup, which is why we chose this pheasant soup for South Dakota. Don’t have pheasant? This soup still tastes great made with chicken or any other fowl you choose.

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.

"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

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.

Mediterranean Kale Soup Recipe
The heartiness provided by the kale and lentils brings "comfort" right into this soup and packs in a great amount of energy. I think most of the spices and amounts of garlic can be modified to suit your own tastes, which is why this soup can be so versatile. You could even add chicken stock if you just can’t go without and I think it would turn out great!

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.

Baachan's Miso Soup
For 92 years (and counting!), my baachan (Japanese grandmother) has been making this soup. She raised four beautiful daughters through World War II — so she knows a little something about comfort food. My big sis and I sought out baachan's recipe, which is nothing like your watered-down sushi bar miso. This is hearty, comforting, and as authentic as Japanese food gets. See all miso recipes.
