In my search for delicious and hearty soups for dinner, I found these modern takes on classic dishes to be some of the very best on the internet!
If I could serve soup every night for dinner, I probably would. At least – when the temp is 60 degrees or below.
Soups just feel good in a thick bowl, warming hands and bellies. (Much like my other favorite- herbal tea.)
If you’re a craver of all things comfort food, you either get it or you don’t. You’re a soup person, or you’re not.
But really, soups can be fun and easy to make (can you say immersion blender??), and also are great reheated for leftovers.
What could be better?
