11 Homemade Soups to Keep you Warm and Cozy

Curl up with a bowl of one of these delicious soups to help you get through those cold winter days. 

1. Beef and Mushroom Soup

This hearty, chunky soup is perfect for any cold night and makes enough for lunch leftovers the next day! Or freeze the rest for up to 3 weeks. Lean beef and heart-healthy canola oil help keep saturated fat to a minimum.

2. Black Bean and Chorizo Soup

This hearty bean soup will warm you up on a cold winter day.

3. Caramelized Onion and Garlic Soup

This delicious soup is the essence of comfort food: caramelized onions and garlic topped with toasted bread and melted cheese. Roasting the garlic first as the onions caramelize gives it a head start. Canola oil’s neutral taste won’t interfere with these heady aromatics.

4. Curried Corn and Pepper Chowder

When fresh corn is available, use about 3 cobs in place of frozen corn; cook and then cut the kernels from the cobs. Roasted corn is especially tasty. For a spicier soup, stir in a pinch of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes along with the black pepper. The neutral taste of canola oil allows the vibrant flavors in this main course soup to shine.

5. Grandma’s Beef Barley Soup

A classic featuring a healthful whole grain: barley!

6. Green Chili and Bean Soup

When you need a hearty and filling soup to warm your bones, here's one to try. The combination of jalapeños and pinto beans puts a yummy Latin flavor into this recipe.

7. Zesty White Bean and Turkey Chili

Leftover holiday turkey is perfect for creating a winter white chili.

8. Rustic Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Crostini

This hearty soup combines tomatoes with the classic flavors of basil, garlic, onions and red peppers for a comforting meal. The grilled cheese crostini offers the same taste as the classic sandwich, but with fewer calories and carbohydrates since it’s open-faced.

9. Thai Sweet Potato Bisque with Parmesan Whole Wheat Crostini

Warm your heart with this flavorful Thai soup.

10. Roasted Vegetable Minestrone

Absolutely fabulous! The roasted vegetables with the prosciutto add many wonderful flavors to this earthy, rich Italian vegetable soup. Roast the veggies and then complete the soup in minutes.

11. Chicken Soup Mexicana

All of your favorite Mexican flavors mix together in this soup while the canola oil and avocado supply healthy fats. ¡Muy delicioso!
