Basic Chicken Soup
Everyone has their own favorite chicken soup recipe, but rarely have so few ingredients added up to so much comfort. This version has classic flavors and, thanks to a simplified method, cooks more quickly than traditional chicken soups (the dish is ready in a little over an hour). There's no need to make a separate stock; the vegetables and meat form their own satisfying broth.
Easy Chicken Noodle Soup
This comforting classic is so easy to make, you'll never eat the store-bought version again.
Cream of Broccoli Soup
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.
Eggs and Parmesan cheese are whisked into this classic Italian soup to make it smooth and creamy, while spinach makes it healthy and filling.
Roasted Pumpkin Soup
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.
Herby Spinach-and-Rice Soup with Turmeric
Inspired by the Persian herbed-rice dish sabzi polo, this turmeric-tinted soup is bursting with spinach, parsley, and dill. The rice and diced potatoes absorb some of the liquid, giving this brothy soup more body. Yogurt, a cumin-infused oil, and a squeeze of lemon are the welcome and essential finishing touches to this healthy comforting dish.
