When you think of the most perfect bowl of soup to warm you up in the fall, what do you think of? Here’s what I envision…
Hearty and filling. That’s why I love soups with potatoes or pasta, protein, and veggies. I want something that’s truly a meal and will keep me full.
Nourishing. A good soup always includes a few vegetables!
In-season ingredients. I love when soup uses seasonal ingredients, like sweet potatoes in the fall.
Easy. The only thing better than a comforting bowl of soup is soup that was easy to throw together!
What To Serve With Soup
While a bowl of soup can often make a meal on its own, I always like to serve it with a side of bread to make sure every bit of broth is soaked right up. Crusty bread is always an easy go-to but depending on the soup, I’ll often whip up a loaf of beer bread or jalapeno cheddar bread. Biscuits are also great, especially for certain chicken soups.
For lunch, I’ll often do a smaller bowl of soup and a salad or sandwich. Grilled cheese will always be #1 for dipping in soup but hot ham and cheese comes in a close second. Or you could try a spin on the classic with a brisket grilled cheese.
Can You Freeze Homemade Soup?
In most cases, yes. Homemade soup is typically ideal for freezing, especially since it usually makes a large amount. All you need to do is allow the soup to cool, transfer to a freezer-safe container, and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge and return on the stovetop.
Exceptions to this general rule are cream-based soups, which often don’t freeze well as the dairy separates and can become a bit grainy when thawing. Be sure to check the individual soup recipes for specific instructions.
