Hearty Winter Soups to Warm You From the Inside Out
December 11, 2019
With the official start of winter just days away, it’s time to start stockpiling hearty recipes that help take the chill out of cold days. And when it comes to warming, comforting foods, nothing beats a hot bowl of soup. Here are three recipes to keep handy as the mercury plummets—no can opener required.
Homemade Tomato Soup [Food Network]
Who knew this childhood favorite was so simple to make? All that’s needed to make tomato soup is canned tomatoes, chicken broth, cream, herbs and spices, and about 10 minutes’ worth of prep time. We recommend pairing the soup with a grilled cheese sandwich or a generous sprinkling of croutons.
White Bean and Lacinato Kale Soup with Smoked Ham Hock [Saveur]
This hearty winter soup balances the creaminess of the white-bean base with the crispy saltiness of pan-fried ham hock. Consider it a complete meal in a bowl—just add a chunk of crusty bread for dunking.
Butternut Bisque [Martha Stewart]
Butternut squash, garlic, onion, cream, cinnamon, cayenne, and a few other ingredients combine to create this light yet satisfying bisque from Martha Stewart. It can be stowed in the freezer for up to three months, proving it to be perfect for satisfying a soup craving on a whim.
