Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup

Who doesn’t love a hot and hearty soup when you return home after a long cold winter day. This signature soup is a thicker, richer cousin of chicken tortilla soup — like you are eating an actual enchilada with a bowl and a spoon. It is the best of both dishes’ worlds!

This soup requires very little prep work for the amount of flavor it yields.

Italian Wedding Soup

Italian Wedding Soup is also known as zuppa di scarola or minestra marinata because of the way the ingredients combine, like a happy love. It is simple to prepare, but has enough flourishes — herby meatballs and a last-minute addition of cheesy egg ribbons — to make it special enough for guests.

Slow-Cooker Celery Soup with Bacon

This might be the easiest soup you will ever make. It took about 10 minutes to assemble. And who doesn’t love everything about bacon — the taste, texture, and smell. Instead of incorporating it into the soup use it as a crunchy garnish. This soup is what you serve when you don’t have time to cook, but want something warm and delicious for supper.

Italian Bread & Tomato Soup (Ribollita)

Literally translated as reboiled, ribollita is a Tuscan soup that can be made with whatever vegetables you have on hand. To keep it tasting like a ribollita, it’s best if you start with a base of onions, carrots, and celery and include some form of tomatoes (sauce, pureé, crushed, etc.) and bread.

This recipe calls for frozen spinach, but kale and Swiss chard would work as well. Tomato sauce, tomatoe puree, crushed tomatoes, and pretty much any other form of tomato would do. If you don’t have stale bread, put a few slices of fresh bread in a warm oven and let them dry out without toasting. Add as much bread to create the thickness you like. Try making it with enough bread so you can taste it in every bite.

Chilled Buttermilk Soup with Tomato and Basil

When summer’s heat arrives, it’s hard to to think of preparing, much as less eating, hot food. We want something cool, quick and refreshing.

This soup couldn’t be simpler: just cold buttermilk, a couple of chopped tomatoes and some basil. It can even be made with pesto, if opening a jar sounds easier than snipping a few basil leaves. This is the essence of summer: simple, cooling and quite delicious!
