5 Soup Recipes to Warm You Up

December 2nd, 2016

SoupDuring the winter holidays, a good soup can warm your heart and spirit. Not to mention the fact that it can make your entire Foster City apartment smell like home. Here are five soup recipes that you can try as the weather turns colder.

Chili

Chili is like one of those adventure novels you read in grade school, each bite is full of excitement. No matter where you start, the variations are endless and you can fine tune the recipe to suit your tastes.  Love beans?  Try a three bean and beef chili. Want to use up some leftover chicken? Try a steaming bowl white chicken chili. Want an authentic Tex-Mex experience? Dish up a hot ladle full of chili con carne.

Vegetable Beef

Vegetable beef soup is a fabulous way to make sure you and your loved ones get their daily dose of colorful veggies. A tomato-based vegetable beef soup allows you to customize the soup to your personal preferences. Load up on carrots, omit the green beans, add mushrooms. Anything goes! Plus, the crock-pot will simmer the soup all day long allowing you to come home to a hot, ready-to-eat meal.

Chicken Noodle

Winter is synonymous with cold.  When a cold strikes, a cup of chicken soup can ease your ailments. While you can spend hours making a deep, rich stock, a quick and easy chicken noodle soup may be just what the doctor ordered. The salty broth will ease a sore throat while the veggies deliver a powerful punch of Vitamin C. Matzo ball soup is another popular under-the-weather chicken soup with healing superpowers.

Lentils

Lentils are a delicious staple of plant-based diets or a great stand-in on a meatless Monday. They come in a variety to suit any taste including red, French, green, yellow and more. This Asian-inspired red lentil and sweet potato soup uses fragrant spices like ginger and curry to liven up the stew. Raisins and coconut milk give it a touch of sweetness to cut through the spice. Lentils are popular around the world. Dal is a staple in Indian diets. The French enjoy them with fresh vegetables and herbs.

Creamy Vegetable

Although they are higher in fat and calories, a good creamy soup can be just what you need to beat the winter blues. The creamy nature of these soups adds an extra layer of richness. Pureed vegetable soups freeze well and make for tasty lunches on the go or emergency dinners. Everyone loves a tangy tomato soup paired with a hot grilled cheese sandwich on a cool day.
