Cajun Cabbage Soup
Not too spicy, warm and healthy. Skip the sausage, add canned beans, and use vegetable stock to make it vegetarian. Serve with sourdough bread and more salsa as desired.
Chef John's Minestrone Soup
This is the type of dish I never make the same way twice, but I hope you give this amazing minestrone recipe a try soon, but only once.
Chicken Jook with Lots of Vegetables
This is a creamy Chinese rice porridge also known as congee. It cooks perfectly in a slow cooker too. Serve garnished with additional scallions and soy sauce.
Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup
I make this soup every Halloween and is the 'signal' to the family that the cool weather has arrived. I've been making it for 15 years now and out of all the soups I make, it is still everyone's favorite. Enjoy!
Lauren's Cincinnati Chili
I have searched far and wide for a recipe that compares to Goldstar or Skyline chili, to no avail. Finally, I took a number of decent recipes and blended them together with the help of a former Goldstar Chili employee. It's still not the same, but it feeds my cravings. The most important things about the chili is how you prepare the beef and the cinnamon and chocolate. I recommend refrigerating the chili overnight. It always tastes better the next day.
Red Curry Chicken and Pumpkin Soup
As the weather turns colder and the days get shorter, and maybe you start feeling those winter blues, make a big pot of this red curry chicken and pumpkin soup. When people think of comfort food, they usually don't think of it as exciting and interesting, but this incredibly tasty soup is the rare exception. It will warm your heart and sooth your soul, but stimulate you at the same time with its lovely contrast of flavors and textures.
Spicy Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup
This recipe is my attempt at the famous Vietnamese spicy beef noodle soup, Pho. Garnish with thinly sliced raw beef tenderloin, basil, mint, cilantro, chili sambal, and fresh lime wedges.
Butternut Squash and Turkey Chili
This is a delicious, filling chili. Serve topped with sour cream and tortilla chips!
Chef John's Ham and Potato Soup
You can never have too many soup recipes. This hearty soup is definitely filling enough to serve as a main course.
Slow-Cooked White Chili
This version won our chili cookoff at work a few years ago in the non-traditional category. Once the weather turns cool, this is one of the first things we make! Also great for a group.
Chef John's Creamy Mushroom Soup
Mushroom soup is creamy, rich, and flavorful with caramelized mushrooms.
