The Best Cold Weather Soup Recipes

The Best Cold Weather Soup Recipes

The time has come! Soup weather. Now it’s officially November, which means my favorite holiday is only a few weeks away. I’ve already begun to compile my Thanksgiving recipe ideas list; the hardest part is going to be narrowing it down. What’s on your agenda? Buttermilk biscuits? Cornbread stuffing? Apple pie? I’d love to hear.

At this time of year, my big stockpots and Dutch oven get a serious workout because most nights, I prefer to eat my meal out of a steaming hot bowl. We don’t necessarily need stick-to-your-bones food around these parts, but it sure helps get me in the cold weather mindset.

Today, I’d like to share a few of my favorite cold weather soup recipes.

Two are entirely vegetarian, all of them using ingredients you’ll likely spot at your markets around this time of year: beets, carrots, broccoli, and fennel.

Weeknight Noodle, Vegetable and Shrimp Soup

Roasted Beet and Fennel Soup

Broccoli Soup with Lemon and Ricotta

Chicken Meatball Minestrone with Ras El Hanout and Israeli Couscous

  • I’m still figuring out Thanksgiving — we have 30+ people so there are a lot of requests to field — but I will definitely try out some of these soups in the meantime!

  • Kasey, even though we are having these weird hot days, I am craving soup for the darker evenings. I’ve got my eye on your weeknight noodle, veg, and shrimp number. My family would be so happy if I made that!

    In terms of Thanksgiving… as a larger family we divvy up the tasks and do the same (very traditional) recipes every year. I have to say, everyone has so mastered their dish that strangely I don’t feel at all bummed not to try something new.

  • 30 people?! That would totally stress me out. I can’t wait to hear what you make.

  • We, too, have a few standards. The cranberry sauce never changes – that stuff is sacred! x

  • I’m looking forward to hearing what you end up making. I’ll live vicariously! xoxo

    I have been craving soups lately too….and been making them, about twice a week. Thanks for some new ideas! Yesterday Armando wondered allowed if we should have lobster for Thanksgiving. I told him I thought that was a bit extravagant. But maybe a steaming bowl of mussels might make a nice app. Can’t wait to hear your Thanksgiving favorites!
