Soup’s on! Don’t think of this dish as a winter-only recipe. Find inspiration in our recipe collections for soups to make and enjoy year-round, and think outside of the box (or bowl) with ideas for creative soup flavors. Start by mastering the basics, like a classic tomato soup, or an easy lentil soup, or a perfect make-ahead slow cooker split pea soup. Then try a heartier recipe, like a chicken tortilla soup or a beef taco soup. Replace your takeout soups with your own homemade hot-and-sour soup or a miso soup with cabbage made from scratch. Also learn how to make soup more sophisticated with our recipes for a smooth celery root soup or a silky, spiced sweet potato–star anise soup with ginger cream.
