10 Cozy Soup Recipes for Cold Winter Days
Warm up with a bowl of one of these delicious soups and stews, from some of our favorite food bloggers.
Roasted Butternut Squash Soup
Super creamy, but without any dairy, this luxurious soup from Minimalist Baker is super easy to make. Dress it up with crunchy toppings like croutons and pepitas, and add a little cayenne pepper for a kick if your family likes a little extra heat.
Easy Tomato Basil Soup
The ultimate pantry meal, Lexi’s Clean Kitchen’s take on this classic comfort soup is made with canned tomatoes so you can make it any time. Pair it with grilled cheese and you’ll have a new family favorite on your hands.
French Onion Soup
What could be cozier and more comforting than a delicious broth topped with bread and cheese? Stephanie from The Cozy Cook offers tons of substitutions (including a way to make it without wine) and tips (like how to use the slow cooker to easily caramelize the onions) that make this recipe a breeze.
Many-Veggie Vegetable Soup
This flexible soup can be made with whatever veggies you have on hand, or that your kids happen to love. Love and Lemons suggests topping with a dollop of pesto or some Parmesan cheese—two ways to make it even more appealing for little ones.
Easy Homemade Ramen Bowls
This recipe starts with packages of store-bought ramen, but Killing Thyme has you toss out the seasoning packet in favor of an easy, super-flavorful broth. Add in plenty of veggies and other healthy toppings for a bowl that nourishes and satisfies.
Healthy Chicken Pot Pie Soup
If chicken pot pie is a family favorite, this recipe from Ambitious Kitchen is for you. It comes together in just half an hour—perfect for busy weeknights. And, bonus, it’s both gluten- and dairy-free.
Ginger Sweet Potato Coconut Milk Stew with Lentils and Kale
Sweet, spicy, earthy, and creamy all at the same time, this superfood-packed stew from The First Mess has something for everyone. And with a base of coconut milk, it’s super rich while being completely dairy-free (as well as vegan and gluten-free, too).
One Pot Lasagna Soup
If your kids love lasagna, they’ll love The Girl on Bloor’s deconstructed (easier to make—no layering!) soup version. You’ll love that it’s all made in one pot, and comes together in just half an hour.
Loaded Beef Stew with Mashed Potatoes
Essentially Shepherd’s Pie in stew form, Love and Olive Oil’s stew recipe is the ultimate in comfort food. It’s the perfect hearty meal after a day playing outside in the snow.
Easy Chicken Noodle Soup
Natasha’s Kitchen’s recipe for chicken soup comes together so quickly and easily, you’ll wonder why you ever relied on the stuff in a can. Make extra and store it in the freezer—you’ll thank yourself the next time someone in your family has a case of the sniffles.
