As soon as that first cold snap hits, I start thinking that a nice, hot soup would be a great idea for dinner. Luckily, my family is thinking the same thing as me so I get to make whatever soups I want and they won’t complain. Here are a few of my favorite soups that I make all the time and I think you and your family will love them.
This first soup is from my mother-in-law and while I have tweaked it a bit, it still has the same kick from the chili powder and the goodness of the veggies. It’s called Fall Cabbage Soup. As you can tell from the name, there is cabbage in it, but it really softens and takes on the flavor of the broth so my kids will eat it.
The next soup we eat frequently is my Curried Chicken and Lentil Soup. It’s also known as Mulligatawny soup and orginated in India and was brought back to England by the soldiers who loved it so much. Well, I get it. We love it too! It has some interesting ingredients like turnips and golden raisins but they absolutely make the soup.
The last soup I’ll highlight is my Chicken Noodle Soup. Everyone should have an amazing chicken noodle soup recipe and this is mine. My family loooooves it! It is the ultimate cozy, fall soup and I make it with lots of noodles and just the right seasoning that my family loves. I know your family will love it too!
One tip I wanted to tell you is when you need to add chicken to a soup, try to use skin-on, bone-in chicken breasts and remove the skin and bone before putting it in the soup. It makes all the difference in how tender your chicken is. My kids get sick of chicken breasts and I understand because I’ve served my share of tough, dry chicken breasts. Sorry kids!
