15 Soups and Stews That Will Keep You Warm This Winter

Once the winter comes we need hearty, comforting, and warming recipes to help us through the winter. Braised meats, soups, stews, and slow-cooker recipes are among the ones that we turn to. Soups and stews are great because they don’t take that long to cook and they are dishes that will keep you feeling warm and full all day. Make sure you don’t eat the canned kind this winter. Instead, try some of these recipes to get you through the winter. You can go with a creamy and rich soup with a parsnip base or you can make something lighter with chickpeas and greens. Soups and stews definitely get us through the winter, which is why we made it the theme of this week’s SWAT.

Parsnip and Leek Soup with Brussel Sprouts and Bacon Topping

This soup is slightly sweet, perfectly creamy, ultimately comforting and healthy. It delivers a false sense of decadence, because while it is silky and rich, it is also good for your waist line (and for your soul). — No Spoon Necessary

Smoky Lentil Chili

Here’s a perfect easy dish for your next Meatless Monday! Lentils require no soaking and cook up faster than beans, so you can whip up this dish in an hour. You can also throw all of these ingredients into a slow-cooker and a savory, fragrant meal will greet you when you come home at the end of the day. Serve it with a handful of fresh cilantro and green onions. Or, let your guests sprinkle with cheese (plant-based or dairy, depending on your preference) and tortilla strips for a hearty dish. — Sharon Palmer

Spicy Mexican Chicken Soup

The soup is the cross between a soup and a chili, it is hearty and thick, and if you let it simmer a bit longer it could even be a dip. The soup has chunks of shredded chicken, tomatoes, corns, beans, and a bit of spicy heat. I topped the soup with chopped cilantro and shredded cheddar cheese. — The Kiitchen
