10 Recipes for Soup Weather

By Megan Myers, October 20, 2012  |  Meet the Blogger  |  More Posts by Megan Myers

When rain is falling, wind is howling or I’m just worn out from a hard day, nothing soothes me quite like a steamy bowl of soup. Maybe it’s because soup is the go-to food when you’re sick (chicken noodle, anyone?), or maybe it’s because soup’s aroma fills the entire house while it simmers away.

Or perhaps it’s because soup is something anyone can make, with practically any ingredient on hand. Remember the story of Stone Soup? The townspeople couldn’t feed themselves with the single ingredients each house had, so they cooked up a batch of “stone” soup by combining it all.

Luckily you won’t need to resort to putting a rock in your soup – we’ve got lots of options for savory, slurpy soups that are just the way to snuggle into autumn. Here are a few of my favorite soup recipes:

Kofta Soup Red Beans and Rice Soup

Carrot-Ginger Soup Italian Chowder with Cod and Kale

Chicken and Wild Rice Soup with Mushrooms Miso Soup with Shrimp and Broccoli

Hearty Greens Soup with Bowtie Pasta and Tomatoes

What soup recipe do you turn to when the weather gets chilly? Share in the comments!

I just made a delicious soup on the first chilly day of fall this year. I used organic ground beef and vegetables from the garden (including onions, carrots, zucchini, and parsley). To make it a more hearty meal, I added tortellini pasta, which my boys especially liked.

The recipes look great and I know I can adapt to a vegetarian diet BUT HEY how about more vegetarian soups without tomatoes and nuts or at least not so much dependent on tomatoes and nuts. You had an apple butternut squash soup out years ago that was fabu. Would love the recipe for that yumO soup.

Thanks for the vegan soup recipes: Red Beans and Rice Soup, Carrot-Ginger Soup, Zesty Black Bean Soup. Most of the others are veganizable too. Is there a way to search for vegan soup recipes in your collection? Entering those terms in the search box there doesn't seem to work...you either have to search for vegan or soup and sift through hundreds of recipes.
