26% need soup for it to feel like Thanksgiving. What says "autumn" or "winter" more than soup?




Everyone loves a good bowl of soup, and what better time to enjoy one than during the winter months? It’s National Soup Month, and we’ve got some delicious recipes that are sure to warm you up on these chilly days.  Let’s get started!

Soup can be a great way to use up leftovers in your refrigerator. One delicious option is to use up leftover vegetables, such as mushrooms, peppers, onions, and carrots. You can sauté them in olive oil until they’re tender. Then add some vegetable broth or chicken broth and simmer until everything is cooked through. If you’d like a heartier soup, add some cooked noodles or quinoa before serving.

Another easy dinner option is to make potato soup. Start by dicing potatoes into small cubes and sautéing them with butter until they’re golden brown. Then add some chicken or vegetable broth along with salt and pepper for seasoning. Simmer for about 20 minutes until the potatoes are cooked through. Finally, stir in some heavy cream for added richness before serving with crumbled bacon or shredded cheese for garnish.

If you’re looking for something a bit more exotic, why not try making curry lentil soup? Start by cooking onions in olive oil until they are soft and translucent. Add garlic and spices like curry powder, cumin, coriander, turmeric, and ginger to the pan and stir for about one minute until fragrant. Then add in lentils along with some vegetable broth and simmer for about 10 minutes until the lentils are soft and have absorbed most of the liquid from the broth. Finish off with a squeeze of lime juice before serving over steamed rice or naan bread!

As you can see there are plenty of options when it comes to celebrating National Soup Month! Whether you want something hearty and comforting using leftovers or something more exotic like curry lentil soup—there’s sure to be something that will tantalize your taste buds this January! So grab those pots and pans out of the cupboard—it’s time to start cooking up these tasty bowls of soupy goodness! Happy National Soup Month everyone!
