I know, I know – someone who lives in southern California talking about the “winter chill.” I can basically hear the eyes rolling. BUT – whether the weather is just a tad mild or bone-chillingly cold, a cozy bowl of soup can warm you up from the inside out. Read on for my favorite 20 Cozy Soups and Stews for Chilly Days ahead!
Why Soups and Stews Are The BEST
Warmth and Comfort: There’s nothing more cozy and satisfying than a hot bowl of soup on a cold day.
Versatility: There are endless flavor possibilities when it comes to soups. You can cater them to tons of taste and dietary preferences.
Nutritional Benefits: It’s SO easy to pack soups and stews with healthy ingredients like vegetables, legumes and proteins, which is great when you’re working on getting some nutrient-rich food in your kids’ bodies!
Convenient Prep: They’re time-saving (one-pot and slow cooker for the win!) and freezer friendly, perfect for busy schedules and effortless homemade meals.
Leftovers For The Win: Making a double batch of soup is my favorite because the leftovers are just as delicious. They’re a practical and budget-friendly choice for meal planning.
My Favorite Soup and Stew Recipes
Chicken Soup & Rice
Chicken Soup and Rice is a classic staple when it comes to making soup. It's hearty and delicious and the perfect thing to eat when you're feeling under the weather or just want something comforting to eat!
I've been cooking celery root for years in salads, soups, just plain roasted and in purees. It's one of my favorite foods and this Celery Root Soup is really healthy, while also being naturally creamy and hearty.
