As winter winds usher in a chill to our brief days, few things match the soothing embrace of a piping hot bowl of soup. The act of cradling a mug, relishing the warmth in your hands, and indulging in each spoonful transforms a cold day into a snug sanctuary.
Here are three soup recipes that frequently grace my table:
Lasagna Soup from Natasha’s Kitchen
The first time I had this soup, I didn’t have any leftovers and ended up making it again only two days later! I think this recipe works best with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and extra dollops of ricotta cheese.
Creamy Taco Soup from Gimme Delicious
A comforting and filling delight, I modify this recipe by adding 1.5 cups of frozen southwestern vegetable mix and half a red bell pepper. My toppings include Mexican cheese, a dollop of sour cream, sliced avocado, crunchy tortilla strips, and a generous squeeze of lime.
Chicken Pot Pie Soup from Chrissy Teigen
Despite the above-average Popsugar ratings, this soup hits the mark. It demands a bit more effort than the previous two and yields a substantial amount, so be prepared for leftovers if you're feeding a small family. My modifications include doubling the pie crust recipe (a game-changer), quartering the pearl onions if you're not a fan of chunks, omitting the deli ham, and using low-sodium broth if you're sensitive to salty flavors.
