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!



Italian Chicken Noodle Soup
ITALIAN CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP This is an Italian twist on one of my most favorite comfort foods. Italian Chicken Noodle Soup has thick egg noodles, Italian spiced chicken broth, lean chicken, tomatoes and fresh basil. Sure to be a new family favorite!


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.

VEGETABLE BEEF, BARLEY AND MUSHROOM SOUP Hearty vegetable beef soup with mushrooms and barley will be sure to fill you up!


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!

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.
