Recipe Monday: Soup Soup Soup

With how cold it’s been lately, nothing has been more satisfying than a steaming bowl of soup. I thought I’d share some of my favorite recipes in hopes that it inspires you to enjoy some hot soup too.

Split Pea Soup

Split Pea Soup has always been one of my all time favorites. It’s funny, because I don’t like peas really. I’ve made this recipe a few times and it’s always a winner. I like to add potatoes to it sometimes too.

Winter Borscht

I made this recently and it was also my first foray into cooking with beets. I didn’t add potatoes (but decided to throw in some broccoli) and I skipped the spices except for a little dill because I also added vinegar at the end. I like my borscht vinegar-y. I was really happy with how this turned out. Full of vegetables and tender pork.

Miner’s Beef Stew:

I usually use this recipe as a guide for my beef stew and just play around with what I add for veggies. I think the addition of the hot sauce really brings out some good flavors.

Hilariously Easy Chicken Soup:

There is nothing as good as homemade chicken soup when you’re under the weather. The first time I made this, I actually used a whole chicken. And honestly, it was a pain. Now I just use boneless skinless chicken thighs and it still comes out delicious. I also throw in a bunch of celery greens (a trick I learned from my grandma) to add some really great flavor. Just remember to fish them out before serving.

What are your favorite soups? Do you have any recipes I should check out?
