As the weather shifts cooler, I transition to soup making; totally my favorite. Read on for three approachable and delicious recipes. I have made these soup recipes so many times, I feel like I could make them blindfolded.
The winning story of all of these soups is threefold. One, they are adaptable to make meatless, or even vegan if you want. Second, my kids (the fiercest critics) enjoy them, and others ask for the recipes whenever they have a bowl. Lastly, most of the ingredients you can have stocked in your pantry or freezer, and you will be almost good to go whenever you want to make them. One of my tips for arriving guests is to have one of these delicious standbys simmering on the stove after their long journey, and they are all heart-eyes — something deliciously welcoming about a warm bowl of soup. What are your go-to soup recipes? I would love to hear about them!
1 – White Bean Turkey Chili. This recipe is quick to make and delicious. The toppings added at the end (especially with lots of limes) elevate this soup to the next level! Ellie Krieger has an incredible knack of making healthy food taste amazing, and I love many of her other recipes too.
2 – Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup. This soup had me at the lemons. My kids beg me to make this one all the time, and it is an excellent alternative to mix it up from chicken noodle.
3 – Instant Pot Creamy Mexican Chicken Soup. A newer one of our soup favorites, yet since I found this one several months ago no joke I have probably made it ten times, and no one is tired of it yet! Give me a soup recipe that can transform frozen ingredients into an incredibly creamy and healthy soup in a pressure cooker in no time, definitely a win-win! With a few food sensitivities in our family, Danielle Walker has been my go-to girl lately, and her most recent book is fantastic. A tip for this recipe is to try different tomatillo salsas, I like to look for ones with clean ingredients, and I have also made homemade tomatillo salsa which is the best!
