14 comforting soup recipes to warm your soul (and stomach) this winter

This is a no-judgment zone, right? Good, because I ate soup for dinner every night this week. From Pho to chicken tortillas to Italian Wedding Soup, I just can’t buy enough — and I’m perfectly fine with it. Although I have to admit that I crave soup all year long, even in the heat of summer, my cravings peak in the winter. Comfort soup recipes are like a warm hug in a bowl, especially given the colder temperatures outside.

One of the most valuable cooking lessons I learned in 2021 is that soup is actually pretty easy to make. Homemade soup always scared me, but in the end I conquered my fear and I will never go back again. I still head to my favorite soup spots in Austin — Soup Peddler, Sip Pho, and Central Market — but making my own soup at home has become my favorite winter evening activity. Arguably the best outcome of my soup addiction is this list of tried-and-true comforting soup recipes. Whether you’re sick, have a cold, or just have an itchy rash, these 14 recipes are guaranteed to bring you cozy comfort.

Spinach, celery, onion and carrots also add a lot of nutrients, but feel free to combine them with vegetables.
