What are winter soups

While we eat soup year-round, winter soups are extra cozy. They are delicious, one-pot meals that will warm you up and make you happy.

Winter soup recipes are typically richer, heartier, and (in our opinion) more delicious than warm weather soups.

Butter up a slice of sourdough or make our no yeast bread with herbs and cheese and dig into one of these tasty soups!

How to make the best winter soup recipes

No matter which winter soup recipe you decide to try today, to make the soup taste the absolute best you need to use good quality store-bought or (preferably) homemade broth. It's the way to bring soup from good to fantastic.

We love using homemade beef bone broth or homemade chicken stock in our soup recipes. Both are simple to make, healthy, and inexpensive and we keep extra in our freezer stored in these Stasher bags.

And homemade vegetable broth will elevate vegetarian soups to a whole new level.

If you don't have homemade stock on hand and you want to make soup tonight, look for bone broth in the freezer section of your grocery store. It's the next best option.

Healthier Creamy Tortellini Soup Recipe

This crazy delicious Creamy Tortellini Soup is a cozy weeknight dinner recipe that is made in only 25 minutes and is surprisingly healthy, too. Instead of being loaded with cream (like most tortellini soup recipes), this one is thickened and made creamy with a little cashew butter. It's our favorite trick for making healthy cream sauces. You'll never guess that this is a healthy soup recipe!
