To be perfectly honest, I had a totally different post planned for today. A really fun and delicious new recipe but, it’s just not quite ready yet. It’s lovely to look at and tastes great, but there’s one thing that’s just not right so… I’m going to work on it a bit more. It’s coming, I promise, I just don’t like to share with you till it’s perfect.
Since it’s gray, rainy and downright miserable here in North Carolina, with forecasts of ice and freezing rain later today, I decided that it was a perfect day for comfort food. And to me, nothing says “comfort” more than steaming bowls of hearty, delicious soup. Here are Five Winter Comfort Soups to add to your culinary arsenal. Each one is a complete “meal in a bowl”, can be made ahead and is loaded with fresh, healthy ingredients.
Chicken Tortilla Soup – the first time I made this soup, my husband asked for so many re-fills, I couldn’t believe it. Your family will too! It’s so flavorful and full of nutritious fresh veggies.
Lasagna Soup – all the flavor of lasagna with a fun new twist – served in a bowl! Everyone seems to go crazy over this one.
Beef Bourguignon Soup French classic in brand new clothes, soup clothes! Julia would have loved this one!
African Peanut Soup with Roast Chicken – If you’re looking for something unique, crazy-delicious and super healthy this soup ticks all the boxes!
Chicken Pasta Soup – I originally posted this as Turkey Pasta Soup, as it was just after Thanksgiving, but most of the time I make it with leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken. It’s perfect for a family dinner as it appeals to all ages. I also like to make it for friends who are sick or maybe just need a bit of cheering up. If soup could speak, I think this one would say, “I love you!”.
So don’t worry if the cold winds blow, the snow falls or ice covers the trees, sidewalks and roadways. Stay tucked inside with a big pot of one of these delicious comfort soups, invite the neighbors and have a winter party!
