Winter is here and that means the cold weather is here! The comfort food that pops into my mind when I think cold and needing warmth is soup. Whether you want a quick and easy soup or one that requires some time stirring all the goodness to perfection, this list of my top 5 soups should make you happy and save your some money.
How would you save money with these recipes? Using up all the leftovers and vegetables that would otherwise spoil. Plus, these are healthy and affordable ingredients.
- Cabbage Split Pea Soup
This cabbage split pea soup is so good that my 5 year old is obsessed and it made me adore cabbage.
- Chicken Noodle Soup
This chicken noodle soup turned my son into an official ‘soup monkey’, and it’s a classic that will make your leftovers so much fun, you will raid your fridge every Friday.
- Chicken Enchilada Soup
Another classic from your leftovers so no more throwing away the half eaten roasted chicken!
- Curried Chickpea Stew
The curried chickpea stew and the mushroom soup may not be ones you have tried before but I urge you to do so.
- Earthy Mushroom Soup
If you want a smoother consistency, simply use a blender or immersion blender to puree it.
