When my soup recipes start making their way to the front of my recipe file, I know that cooler weather and autumn are on their way. I love the inviting aroma of savory soups simmering over a warm stove. I select my soup recipes based on a number of factors. To make a good, nourishing soup, the soup recipes need to not only be tasty, but they also have to be easy. And, of course, the soup recipes should include a nutrient-dense broth as a base.
The following collection of soup recipes will warm your home and your belly.
This soup is old-fashioned comfort food. The first time I ever ate a cheese soup I was a child eating a fine dinner at a German restaurant to celebrate my father’s birthday. The dining room featured dark woods, a stone hearth sporting a happy fire, copper pots hanging on the walls, and mahogany colored leather on the chairs. Rustic. Cheese soups are rustic soups, and I love them.
You know you need a Real version of this popular soup. You can’t, in good conscience, buy it at the supermarket when it comes loaded with MSG in BPA-lined cans. Herbal, earthy, and nutrient-dense, this soup isn’t thickened with flour, but egg yolks! Don’t you just love soup recipes from old cookbooks? Everything’s so…real.
Fast. Fast. Fast. Easy. Easy. Easy. This soup cooks up so quickly, it has saved many a dinner. And it’s also nourishing, too. Eggs from pastured hens. Homemade chicken broth. What’s not to love? This is one of my easiest soup recipes to make.
The delicately sweet flavor of butternut squash mingles with the curried flavor of ginger in this warm Autumn soup topped with cultured cream. Fresh butternut squash straight from the farmer’s market is inexpensive at this time of year, so dig in.
