Basic Chicken Soup

Rating: 3.5 stars 377
Chicken soup is the ultimate comfort food. It warms and satisfies, which is why you make it when you're feeling under the weather or chilled to the bone in winter. Our simple recipe has classic flavors and a short ingredient list—and it comes together faster than most versions (you'll have your spoon in a piping hot bowl in just over an hour). It's low-effort, too: All you have to do as the flavors meld together on the stovetop is give your soup the occasional stir.

Everyday Vegetable Soup

Rating: 3.5 stars 1800
This basic vegetable soup can be made with any combination of fresh or frozen vegetables, so the soup will taste a little different each time. The recipe can easily be doubled or even tripled to feed all the vegetable soup fans at your table.

Split Pea Soup with Ham

Rating: 3.5 stars 671
Hearty and comforting, this is a soup you'll enjoy all through fall and winter. Our split pea soup is made with a ham bone for flavor, and leftover ham is added to the soup for serving. Use your blender or immersion blender to purée the soup so it's smooth and delicious—and don't skip the homemade croutons, they're a delightful crunchy accent.

Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Rating: 3.5 stars 102
This comforting classic is so easy to make, you'll never eat the store-bought version again.

Cream of Broccoli Soup

Rating: 3.5 stars 192
This soup is super creamy in texture, but it contains very little actual cream. The butter and flour mixture -- what's called a roux -- gives it body and silkiness.

Vegetable-Bean Soup

Rating: 3.5 stars 101
Our vegetarian bean soup is made with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen, including carrots, onions, celery, and garlic, canned beans, and canned tomatoes. The hearty dish makes a great dinner and requires just 25 minutes of prep; then, the soup simmers on the stovetop until the vegetables are tender. If you omit the parmesan for serving, this soup is also vegan.

Apple-Butternut Squash Soup

A Thanksgiving-worthy soup blends tangy, sweet apples with mellow butternut squash. Meanwhile cumin, coriander, ginger, and cayenne add vibrant flavors.

Butternut Squash Soup with Coconut Milk and Ginger

Sweet roasted butternut squash tempers the heat of fresh ginger in this vegan soup. Coconut milk is swirled in for creaminess, while toasted squash seeds add a pleasing crunch.

Roasted Pumpkin Soup

Rating: 3.5 stars 615
Instead of sugar pumpkins, you can use other winter squash in our Roasted Pumpkin Soup recipe. Kabocha, calabaza, and Hubbard are the best alternatives. Choose a squash that feels heavy for its size and is free of soft spots. The soup can be garnished with toasted pepitas or a dollop of sour cream—or both.

Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

The old-fashioned version of this soup takes hours to prepare. Here, we've cut down the cooking time by using canned broth and boneless, skinless chicken thighs for an easy, family-friendly soup perfect for lunch or dinner.
