Winter soups are a necessity, especially for anyone living in a cold winter weather area. A bowl of warm soup is cold weather comfort food, and we have enough soup recipes here to keep you warm all winter long!
Comforting Winter Soups
Have you ever wondered what the difference is between summer and winter soups?
Other than the temperature of the soup itself, there isn’t much difference between winter soups and summer soups. Take creamy mushroom soup, as an example; it’s hearty, warm, and comforting on cold days, but still light enough that it’s completely appropriate to enjoy in the summer too.
On the other hand, there are thick chowders, chili, and stick-to-your-ribs soups and stews that will do nothing but weigh you down on a hot summer day. Those hearty and comforting winter soups are exactly what we’re sharing with you today!
