A hearty soup that is very creamy and delicious. Warms you up on a cold winter day. Easily doubles or triples to make extra servings and tastes even better after it's been reheated. Best of all, it's easy to make!

This soup is oh-so yummy, easy to make, and the aromas will make your mouth water. Serve with some crusty bread. Freezes well, so it's excellent for lunches and leftovers (not that there will be any left).

This hearty tomato soup has chunks of vegetables and pasta. Serve with a grilled cheese sandwich. Just right for a cold weather lunch or supper.

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

Rating: 4.5 stars 749
People have offered me their firstborn children for this recipe; it is simple, easy to make, and delicious. It's also vegan if you don't add the cheese at the end. If you prefer a more spicy soup, add a dash or two of hot sauce before serving.

Fresh Pea Soup

Rating: 4.5 stars 122
This soup is known in France as Potage Saint-Germain, a name that comes from a suburb of Paris where peas used to be cultivated in market gardens. If fresh peas are not available, use frozen peas, but thaw and rinse them before use. Croutons make an excellent garnish!

Ukrainian Red Borscht Soup

My friend's mother from Ukraine taught me this recipe for the classic beet soup. It's as authentic as it gets. It can be made vegetarian by omitting the sausage—and vegan by omitting the sour cream as well.

Simple Tomato Soup
Rating: 5 stars 138

This is my go-to tomato soup recipe. It's so easy and delicious. It's easily made vegan (if you use margarine instead of butter or 2 tablespoons of olive oil), ready in 30 minutes, and I give leftovers to my kids for lunch. If you like, you can add cream, but my family likes it the way it is. I usually serve it with rosemary bread for dunking.
