With winter rapidly approaching and the chill in the air starting to increase, many people are starting to bundle up in their favorite sweatpants and sweatshirts under the blanket to keep cozy. Nothing goes better with some cozy clothes, a warm fireplace, and a good movie than a nice bowl of hot soup. Check out some of the best soups for this upcoming winter season!
You can never go wrong with a classic like chicken noodle. This well-known soup is a very simple dish that consists of egg noodles and chicken in chicken stock. It also often contains vegetables such as carrots, onions, and even celery. Chicken noodle soup is a meal often served when someone is feeling under the weather with a cold or the flu as it helps settle an uncomfortable stomach. This is the go-to soup for the winter season to help keep you warm.
Another popular soup that is sure to delight your taste buds this winter is corn chowder. To make this cold-weather favorite, you need a few simple ingredients, including fresh corn, butter, bacon, onion and garlic, flour, potatoes, and a nice tasty broth. Chowder is often a thick soup that is more filling and includes a few more ingredients than a traditional soup. If you enjoy something creamy, comforting, and full of an assortment of ingredients, then corn chowder might just be the soup for you.
Minestrone is a classic Italian soup that is very simple to make. It is made with a tomato broth with either pasta or rice. Additionally, there is a bevy of vegetables that can be included in the soup depending on the recipe that you choose.
Minestrone was originally a soup that was made to get rid of leftover vegetables. Some common ingredients include potatoes, spinach, beans, and peas. Give this one a try if you are a vegetable lover!.
