Welcome to Blogmas Day 2! I hope you enjoyed the recipe post.
As you likely know if you’ve been reading this blog for any appreciable amount of time, I eat a TON of soup. Over the past year, I’ve tried a ton of different and unique soup recipes. Today, I wanted to do a round-up of some of my favorites, plus some I’m dying to try. If you love soup as much as I do, read on!
- Butternut squash soup with citrus cranberry relish. This is one of my recipes from my grandma here on the blog, but this classic butternut squash soup gets a little pizzaz with the addition of creme fraiche and cranberry relish.
- Leftover Roast Chicken Soup with Roasted Vegetables. This one is a staple in my house, and we’ve made it for guest multiple times. It was a butternut squash based broth, and is packed with flavor. It’s also paleo, if that’s your thing.
- Sweet potato, pear, and leek soup with spiced croutons. I also call this my magic soup. It has spicy ginger undertones, and has never failed to quell an upset stomach. Back when I was still sick, I swear every time I was having a flare up, this soup nipped it in the bud. The curry scented croutons elevate this soup to another level. And if you’re feeling lazy, you can take prepared butternut squash or sweet potato soup, blend in a pear, then add spices and croutons. (See how I did it here.
- Chicken avocado soup. I’ve made this a few times now, and you really can’t go wrong with avocado, right?
- Avgolemono (chicken lemon rice Greek soup). Cooking Light’s take on this Greek soup has tons of flavor, and I love the addition of fresh herbs. I highly recommend adding a bit of feta as well .
- Colombian Chicken Soup. This is a fun soup that is really different, and has a lot going on. Toppings include corn on the cob, avocado, and cilantro. If you’re looking for something unique, give this a try!
- Skinny Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup (Crockpot). This is the one crockpot recipe on the list. I found this recipe when making my mom a crockpot cookbook last Christmas, and it was a winner. It’s packed with flavor, but also with hidden veggies; cooked into the soup are zucchini and grated carrots.
- Sweet potato, kale, and corn chowder. Everyone loves a good chowder to warm up, and this fits the bill. It’s dairy free, but still creamy thanks to blended sweet potato and corn. You’d never know it though!
- Spinach and goat cheese bisque. This one is a bit different. It reminds me of Spanikopita, the Greek spinach and cheese pastry. It packs in a whopping 24 cups of spinach, and the croutons are to die for.
- Split-pea soup with Portobellos. My picture does not do this soup justice, so definitely click through to the original! I feel like split pea soup can be a hit or miss, an this was definitely not a miss. The mushrooms add a whole lot to the flavor, and this soup is loaded with veggies.
I want to close this post out with a few soups I’m dying to try. Note that pictures are taken from the original blogs, and are not mine!
