This long-standing comfort food is just the thing for a quick and easy dinner solution or to simmer the day away. And if you’ve got the time, go the extra mile and make your own homemade vegetable broth or chicken broth (it’s easier than you think). Warm up with seven of our favorite soup recipes. Read on.
1. Mexican Chicken Soup
Feeding a crowd? This easy-to pull-together dish is flavorful and easy to double or triple for a group. Make hosting look easy by serving in a large pot with garnishes spread around in beautiful bowls. Your secret can be that you got Animal Welfare Rated Air Chilled Split Chicken Breast for a steal at just $2.99/lb from 2/28 — 3/6/18*. And if it’s party, pick up a few 6-pks of Modelo Especial beer — it’s on sale ($2 off from 2/28-3/6/18*).
2. Barley Soup with Beef and Mushrooms
Beef and barley are a classic soup pairing for a reason. Shake up the favorite flavor profile with rutabaga for rich, earthy flavor (or stick to carrots if that’s what’s in the fridge). And don’t scrimp on the mushrooms.
3. Tomato Soup and Avocado Toasts
You’ll get a high fives for this fresh spin on grilled cheese and soup — especially from avocado toast fans. Bonus accolades for scoring this great deal: rich, creamy avocados are 4 for $5 from 2/28 - 3/6/18*.
4. Mini Meatball Noodle Soup
Love soups with meatballs but don’t have the time or energy to prepare two recipes for one dinner? Then you’ll appreciate this meatball hack that uses just two ingredients — bratwurst and breadcrumbs. This Asian-inspired soup has something for everyone. A must try.
5. Classic Butternut Squash Soup
If you haven’t made butternut squash soup yet this season, it’s time. This one is a solid base recipe with three surprising twists — Apple, Gorgonzola and Almond Butternut, Thai-style and Southwestern-style. Give all three a go in the chilly weeks ahead.
6. Better Than Chicken Soup
This immunity-boosting soup boasts big flavor and nutritional value from an armful of veggies like mushrooms, kale and butternut squash. Whip up a double batch to freeze.
7. Roasted Garlic Matzoh Ball Soup
These pillowy, garlicky matzoh balls are addictive, and the secret ingredient is a spicy jalapeno broth. If you have leftovers, store the matzoh balls separately from the soup to prevent them turning soggy.
