January is #NationalSoupMonth – What better way to celebrate than with a collection of the BEST Soup Recipes ever?
I have taken the time to compile a collection of the BEST Soup Recipes EVER for you. Right here, all in one place. How cool is that?
There is nothing I love more than a piping hot, comforting bowl of soup. I seriously never get tired of it. There are way too many options! How could you get bored? I eat it all year long, even in the heat of the summer. Apparently, most people associate soup with winter though. That’s why they deemed January as National Soup Month. Fine by me! Just another reason to make a pot of soup to celebrate! Am I right?

I asked some of the best food bloggers out there, to share their favorite soup recipes. The response was amazing! I have taken them and divided them into categories, to help you find them easier. All you need to do is simply click the link to be taken to each recipe! Easy enough? Let’s get started!
I had to begin our soup sharing with my favorite, Chicken Soup. My Mom’s Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup is by far, my Number One Comfort Food. It’s one of the first recipes I blogged. (please excuse the photos – every time I make it, I plan to re-shoot them, but I just decide to eat it instead!! LOL) I have a couple of interesting twists on Chicken Noodle Soup here on my blog, and some other ways to enjoy chicken soup.

Next up, that classic warming bowl of vegetable soup. My sister-in-law, Karen, made the very best vegetable beef soup. I asked her once what she put in it, and she went on to tell me that she just tossed stuff in the pot. She took her technique with her, when she passed away in 2005, but to this day, I can’t eat a bowl of vegetable beef soup without thinking of her.
My second favorite vegetable soup? My Grandma Czaplewski’s hamburger soup recipe. You’ll find the recipe for it here, too. She didn’t put noodles in hers, but sometimes I do. My favorite canned soup as a kid was Campbell’s Noodles & Ground Beef. They quit making it years ago, but when I add Kluski noodles to her Hamburger Vegetable Soup, it’s as close as I can get! Fun Fact: My recipe for Hamburger Noodle Soup was featured on The Today Show’s food website a couple of years back!

Growing up Catholic, we typically only ate meatless meals during Lent. (can you say family of Carnivores? ha ha ) . As I have grown up, I love a good meatless meal. Love me some veggies! I wanted to make sure that I had a collection of soups for the vegetarians, and non-carnivores out there, too!

While we are on the subject of meatless soups, how about seafood soups? Can I get a “HECK YEA!!??” I love a good bowl of New England Clam Chowder, or a creamy Lobster Bisque. You’ll actually find my recipe for New England Clam Chowder in two sections. This one and the section marked “Instant Pot.” The Lobster Bisque recipe you will find here, belongs to my good friend, Lisa, from Lisa’s Dinnertime Dish. I visited her last October, and she made it for me. It was absolutely SCRUMPTIOUS.

As promised, here is the section of Instant Pot or Instapot or Pressure Cooker Soups. Whatever you call them. Do you own an Instant Pot yet? I have had one for about a year now. I have used it a few times, more and more all of the time. My favorite thing to make in it is definitely soup. It makes it super easy, it’s one pot and that’s makes less dishes. #WINNING If you are considering an Instant Pot, I am very happy with mine. I own the Instant Pot Lux — it does all sorts of cool stuff!! It sautés, slow cooks, and even works as a rice maker.

Slow cooking soups will never be a thing of the past. No matter how you speed things up or make them easier, there is just something about coming home after a long day to dinner in the crock pot. No fuss, just dish it out and enjoy. When I asked for crock pot soup recipes, everyone had their favorites, and that made this list for you top notch!

I have so many soups that I couldn’t possibly share them all, and some of them, that are my favorites, didn’t suite fit into any of the categories I had here. So, I made my OWN category. It’s my website — I can do that! I named it “Just Good Soups” because they are that. They are just plain good. You’ll find them below that will take you to the direct link, here on my blog, for ALL of my soup recipes.
