Soup Recipe Round-Up: 15 “Souper” Suppers!

One of our Iowa City Moms Bloggers posted a question on her Facebook page this week asking, “What kind of soup is everyone making this week?” I jumped in and shared a few of my recent faves. And so did a lot of other people. She received 50 recipe suggestions! Chicken Noodle. Chili. Hearty vegetarian soups. Slow- and pressure-cooker options. That’s a lot of people making soup!

If you’re looking for some soup-spiration to warm up your family this winter, check out these crowd-sourced and mom-tested recipes.

Soup Recipe Round-Up: 15 "Souper" Suppers!Winner Winner Chicken (Soup) Dinner!

Garlic Parmesan Chicken Stew

Crockpot Chicken and Noodle

That’s Italian!

Zuppa Toscana

Instant Pot Creamy Tortellini

Our Best Bites Sausage Tortellini Soup

This soup has been in my weeknight rotation during cold months for a few years now. My whole family loves it, and the sneaky add-in of grated zucchini adds fiber and extra nutrition to an already delicious soup!

Hearty Soups and Stews

Slow Cooker Cheeseburger Soup

Crockpot Baked Potato Soup

Nom Nom Paleo Pressure Cooker Beef Stew

I served this over mashed potatoes and it was the perfect comfort food. Be sure to follow the author’s tip below for the addition of potatoes/root vegetables:

Tip: If you want to add root vegetables to your stew, stir in diced carrots and cubed potatoes after the stew is done (adding at the beginning will result in carrot-mush) and pressure-cook everything for five more minutes under high pressure. Manually release the pressure, adjust seasoning to taste, and serve.

Easy Weeknight Chili

This chili is the only true “short-cut” chili (30 minutes!). I’ve found that fills the chili bill without simmering all day! 

Taco Soup

Grab a bag of Fritos for this one!

White Chicken Chili

I stirred in a ½-1 cup of half-and-half to this one for a creamy finish!

Tomato Soup

Roasted Tomato Basil

Easy Pressure Cooker Tomato Soup

You guys. This is my new favorite. If you love the Iowa City Bread Garden’s Tomato Soup, you will be so happy to taste this one!

Best Lentil Soup

This one, using my favorite canned black beans from Trader Joe’s, is vegetarian if you substitute vegetable broth.
