I love to smell soup simmering on the stove.The flavors are melding into perfection as the meat becomes more tender. It makes a house smell like home when the soup pot is full.
Soup is also practical and utilitarian. Not only is it warming in winter, but it’s a great way to use up leftovers too. See my post here for how to create your own souper easy soup.
Most soups are either tomato-based, cream based, or broth. When making tomato-based soups like my gumbalaya (YouTube and Diet Doctor) or Brunswick Stew, you do need to be mindful of the carbs. Adding a lot of veggies can quickly lead to carb creep.
If you prefer a cream-based soup, try my Chowder. It can be made with chicken or seafood and could not be easier to make.
Another delicious cream based soup is my Broccoli Cheddar. Just remember that it’s a side dish and not a full meal. It needs some protein to keep you satiated. Serve it with a roasted meat, hamburger patty, cooked bacon, etc. and you’ve got a full meal.
Broth based soups are also easy and could not be more delicious than when you start with homemade bone broth .
For a single serving, try Egg Drop Soup. It has only 4 ingredients and it’s really filling. Grace enjoys it for a quick lunch.
Another really popular broth-based soup is my Chicken No Noodle soup. It’s the one soup I can always count on Jonathan enjoying. I really like to make it with leftover roasted chicken.
Pumpkin Sausage soup is another cream based favorite recipe. I tend to double this one in the hopes that there might be leftovers.
