Soups and Stews

Rainy days are known for being the best time to throw together a pot of soup or stew (or chili), but who says you need a rainy day to treat yourself to a tasty hot bowl of delicious comfort food? Soup is always delicious no matter what the weather is like outside,
and makes you feel warm and cozy inside. It also almost always is very healthy, containing an assortment of ingredients often with packed with vitamins, minerals, proteins and more. Soup is one of the easiest meals to prepare, and most recipes make plenty for everyone, as well as abundant leftovers. It also stores well in the refrigerator or freezer, and is a cinch to reheat later (and in fact tends to gain more flavor after having been stored in the fridge overnight). Whether you enjoy soups that are chunky or creamy, mild or spicy, thick or brothy, there are endless varieties from which to choose. Below you will find soup recipes made with chicken, potato, vegetable, split pea, beans, ground beef, ground pork, turkey, cheese and more. You may also want to check out the Bread page for an accompanying bread for your soup or stew recipe. Homemade Croutons also taste fabulous sprinkled over soup, offering crunch and added flavor.
