National Soup Swap Day is Jan. 21, but we’re celebrating all season long with our very best bisques, chowders and stews.
Quick-cooking yet sophisticated, you’ll want to keep these versatile soups on hand all winter long. Stripped down to their basics there’s nary a cold they can’t soothe, and dressed up with garnishes like the herbed gremolata on our Creamy Spiced Carrot Soup, they’re dinner-party perfect.
When it comes to comforting soups, look no further than these rib-stickers. Filled to the brim with all the good stuff like vegetables, beans, meatballs and rice, these piping-hot bowls promise to fill you up without weighing you down.
Seafood, corn and potatoes are the basic building blocks for creating great chowders and bisques. But the list of ingredients doesn’t stop there. Add broccoli to the mix for Creamy Corn and Broccoli Chowder or experiment with tomatoes in our Fire Roasted Tomato-Basil Crab Bisque. There’s a wide world of soup out there, so don’t be afraid to try something new.
Think of slow-cooker soup as your not-so-little secret for getting through the workweek. Fifteen minutes of prep in the morning means an entire crock of soup ready to feed the whole family the minute you walk in the door. Plus, it freezes well for later in the week or month when you’re running short on time.
Cold winter days are no match to the warmth and comfort of these soups. They’re the perfect base for layering on additional flavors. Spiked with beer, loaded with beef, or decked out with baked potatoes and all the fixings, there’s no wrong way to make a classic cheesy soup.
