Everyone's favorite, chicken soup with noodles, is comforting and satisfying but also super easy to make -- largely due to the fact that there are so many ways to transform chicken broth, vegetables, and noodles. With different flavorings and types of noodles, the bowl takes on a distinct personality.
Be sure to save the turkey bones from your Thanksgiving feast -- you can use them to make a pot of flavorful stock. Simmer them with some onions, carrots, and celery, and you'll have a freezable, low-sodium base for soups, stews, rice dishes, and more.
You can make this refreshing meal without even turning on the oven or stove top. Float pre-cooked shrimp on a bowl of gazpacho made heartier with earthy beets. Look for vacuum-packed cooked beets in the produce section of supermarkets.
