Get the links to these nine, amazing from scratch soup recipes that you need to make this winter, all of which are made with REAL, whole, ingredients.
We have had quite a few snowy days in the last few weeks where we live. I love winter time and I especially love the snow! When its just cold and dry and bitter outside, its harder to appreciate the wintertime than when there’s a beautiful blanket of fresh snow out the windows.
My favorite thing to do on snow days is hang out in the kitchen all day and bake and cook to warm up the house. Sometimes its fresh cinnamon rolls with homemade chili, maybe a big pot roast with potatoes and carrots, but usually its a delicious, from scratch soup with our favorite homemade bread.
Soup just really hits the spot on those cold, winter days. I am always looking forward to the cooler days of fall and winter when I can make soups again. I’ve tried to make my favorite soups in the summer because I was craving them, but it didn’t go over so well, ha. We don’t have A/C in our little house so the fam was not excited about a hot soup on a hot summer day!
All is well though, I just get in as much soup making as I can in the winter to make up for it. Now, if you’re used to soups out of a can, or even dry soup packets, you NEED to try making a completely from scratch soup. It just can’t be beat.
I’m talking homemade beef or chicken broth, whole vegetables, maybe some dried beans or lentils, and all of the other goodies you enjoy. Cooking from scratch can be such a joy! I really enjoy trying to get as from scratch as I can in my cooking. If a recipe calls for mayonnaise, why not make it?! Canned tomatoes? Can your own! YUM.
Okay, I think you know now how much I love soup and from scratch cooking, so I’ve rounded up a few soup recipes from some of my favorite bloggers who share from scratch recipes. They cook with real, whole ingredients, and their recipes are always amazing!
Aw, one of my favorite foodie, homestead bloggers, Shaye from The Elliott Homestead. I have both of her cookbooks and absolutely love them and the recipes in them. She shares simple recipes made with delicious, real ingredients. This tortellini soup with chicken and pine nuts by her has had my eye for a while. Try it out this winter!
Here is another yummy soup recipe by Shaye. This one is a little different style: Hearty Italian Meatball Soup! I love the addition of cabbage, so unique but sounds so delicious!
Lisa from Farmhouse on Boone shares delicious, from scratch recipes natural living, and everything handmade. I have tried several of her recipes and love them all. This Roasted Pumpkin Soup With Acorn Squash would be such a fun soup recipe in the fall or the beginning of winter if you can still find some pumpkin. The bacon puts it over the top! YUM.
This White Chicken Chili is another soup recipe by Lisa that I’ve been dying to try. I love that she uses dried beans, nothing canned! Dried beans in soup give it a really delicious and hearty flavor. I know she also has a homemade, sourdough tortilla recipe her site, I think this soup would pair so well with that!
Slow cooker meals are great for those busy winter days, or mornings when you want to get a meal started and just enjoy your fam the rest of the day. This Slow Cooker Baked Potato Soup by Jill at The Prairie Homestead will likely leave your home smelling AHHmazing! Bacon, cheese, and potatoes are one of my favorite combos too, Jill!
If you don’t like french onion soup, you’ve probably never tried a from scratch recipe before. Jill shares another delicious, soup recipe with her Best French Onion Soup Recipe. This soup would be perfect if you use some leftover crunchy bread from our recipe HERE.
If you’re looking for a quick soup recipe try this Instant Pot Lentil Soup by Practical Self Reliance. With a whole lot of fresh, shopped veggies, dried lentils, and homemade stock, this soup is sure to give you an immune boost this winter.
Now, this next soup by Reformation Acres is a unique combination, but it sounds so perfect for a cold winter day! Try this Bacon Mushroom Soup with Barley and Wild Rice when you want to mix things up this winter.
Finally, another recipe by Reformation Acres is this Kielbasa Soup With Kale and White Beans. The best part? She shows you how to make your own, homemade Keilbasa sausage in another post! It doesn’t get more from scratch than that.
