These cold, depth of winter days can be hard to shake. But sometimes all you need is a hearty bowl of soup to both fill and warm you up at once. Whether you are craving pea soup, and easy black bean Instant Pot soup or a steaming bowl of classic chicken soup, these hearty recipes make big, flavourful batches that are even better served for lunch the next day.
Instant Pot Black Bean Soup
If you own an Instant Pot, you’re in luck. This creamy black bean soup takes just an hour to come together. Spices and herbs add depth to the wholesome soup, while cilantro and lime finish it off. Here are some foods you should never cook in the Instant Pot.
Cabbage Roll Soup
Leftover cabbage rolls don’t have to be eaten the next day the same way. With this recipe, you can turn them into a nice hearty soup. Top with sour cream for a little dollop of decadence.
Pork Wonton Soup
Delicious dumplings stuffed with pork and shrimp form the backbone of this filling soup. Add a handful of noodles for a slurp-worthy addition.
Butternut squash makes a great backbone for creamy soups that will fill anybody right up. In his version, Alton Brown adds ginger for a little bit of spice and honey for sweetness.
Escarole and Chorizo White Bean Soup with Barley
Chorizo brings the heat, but creamy cannellini beans and barley add a creamy texture to this hearty soup. Escarole, a leafy green, adds a nice touch of colour and is a great match for all the other flavours.
