38 Cozy Cold Weather Soup Recipes
Is there anything better than a lovely hot bowl of soup on a cold day or night? The winter months call for comfort food and delicious soups and stews fit the bill perfectly. Our family adores homemade soups, so I decided to do this wonderful roundup of 38 Cozy Cold Weather Soup Recipes for you to enjoy some great soups too!
Soup has been around since the dawn of time, actually dating back to 20,000 BC according to Wikipedia. Wow, that is a serious track record for how long we have been in love with a great bowl of soup. In more recent history, soup has been a winter staple.
For the last few centuries, hearty soups were a great way to stretch a family food budget and use up some of the vegetables such as squash that would otherwise be harder to cook.
Soup is Healthy
Soup is healthy, can use up leftover meat such as chicken, and can easily be tailored to fit a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle by adding lentils and removing animal products such as meat or butter.
One of the best things about soups is that they can be a side dish or a main dish depending on your preference and serving size. They are easy to make and are a great food to warm up with during the winter months when it’s cold outside.
I love a thick and creamy or hearty bowl of soup to chase away the cold weather winter chills. Grab a pot and try one or more of these fabulous 38 Cozy Cold Weather Soup Recipes. Come back and try another. There are a lot to keep you warm all season long!!
Classic Comfort Food
Soups are classic comfort food. Probably because we all grew up with a relative who believed that a good chicken noodle soup could cure whatever ailed us.
The healing power of a warm bowl of soup cannot be overstated. The best part about making your own soup today is that you don’t have to spend all day making it – many of these recipes can be put into a slow cooker or an instant pot and walked away from.
Whether you’re looking for a hearty meat stew, an easy vegetarian soup, or a slow cooker soup recipe to add to your rotation, the soup recipes below will help you find some inspiration for your family. Let me know in the comments which ones are your favourites!
