Warm Winter Soup Recipes

Easy, warming recipes for weeknight meals
Jane Bruce

Soothing, comforting, and filling, most soups make a perfect wintertime meal. And soups aren't just for when you’re feeling sick — they can also provide tons of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. Another benefit of soups is that you can make large batches and freeze them in several Tupperware containers so that you can warm one up quickly for dinner.

Making your own stock with leftover chicken bones from a roast dinner or a quick vegetable one when you have downtime on a Sunday sounds great (and tastes delicious), but it can sometimes be too much. Instead, taste test low-sodium broths from the supermarket to find which one you like the most and then stock up on it. That way, you are always ready to make a quick soup from scratch.

Want a creamy soup but not the cream that goes with it? Try using puréed potatoes as a thickener, as in the broccoli soup below. For many of these soups, you can create a vegetarian version by using a vegetable broth instead of chicken.

Before the winter season ends, bulk up your belly and freezer with some of these cozy soups.
