Potato Leek Soup

This decadent potato leek soup is a must-have recipe for your winter meal rotation. Once you get past the time-consuming step of properly washing all of the grit off of the leeks, the soup comes together quickly and effortlessly. You will begin by melting butter in a large stock pot and sautéing the chopped leeks and garlic to create a wonderful base. The heavy cream makes this a soup that feels indulgent. Top the creation with finely chopped chives for a bit of color and additional flavor. Be sure to include a loaf of French bread with this meal. You will want to sop up all of the goodness.

Tuscan White Bean and Kale Soup

You will fall in love with this Tuscan white bean and kale soup, brimming with bacon, fresh rosemary, cannellini beans, and lacinato kale. This freezer-friendly meal is packed with protein and heart-healthy vegetables. While the recipe calls for cannellini beans, you can also substitute Great Northern beans in this flavorful soup. You can also choose to leave out the bacon and substitute vegetable broth instead of chicken broth for a vegetarian option.

Easy Greek Red Lentil Soup

Take your taste buds on a great adventure with this easy Greek red lentil soup. The soup is prepared using red lentils, garlic, onions, and carrots. The tomato broth takes on its flavor from the rosemary, oregano, and cumin. A bit of lemon juice and fresh parsley adds another layer of flavor. Finish the creation off with a handful of feta cheese. You will find that an immersion blender is an invaluable tool when preparing this soup.

Minnesota Wild Rice Soup

This Minnesota wild rice soup is a great choice if you are looking for a hearty soup that is still vegetarian. Because wild rice is inherently chewy, it will retain its robust texture even after it simmers for a long period of time. This recipe also calls for carrots, onion, celery, garlic, vegetable broth, fresh thyme, and evaporated milk. While the evaporated milk may sound like an odd ingredient choice, it is a good way to create a creamy consistency without as much fat as heavy cream or half and half.

Taco Soup

This fun taco soup is a good recipe choice when feeding a crowd or when you have picky eaters to satisfy. Kids especially love this Mexican-inspired soup. Boasting both taco seasoning and ranch dressing mix, it is easy to see where the soup gets all of its flavors.
