05 Jan 12 Warm Soups for Bomb Cyclone Weather
The arctic blast of the bomb cyclone calls for one thing and one thing only. SOUP. Enjoy this roundup of soups that are sure to warm you to your core.
It’s been in the teens here in Dallas–a temperature I relish as a former Midwesterner-but that’s nothing compared to what @winterstormgrayson is bringing to our friends on the East Coast. Frigid temperature and bone-chilling cold call for comfort and warmth when it comes to food & drink. Hot teas, hot chocolates, coffees, lattes and their counterparts all count warm liquids, as do mulled wine, warmed cider and Hot Toddies. Sounds good, right? One cannot exist on beverages alone, however. Don’t worry–I’ve got you covered in the SOUP department with this post.
I’ve had soup 5 times in the last 10 days.. Chili. Beef and Barley. Matzoh Ball. Black Bean. Egg Drop. It’s comfort food in the truest sense of the word, right? In an effort to help you stay warm–as well as use what’s in your pantry and fridge because who wants to go out in this weather—I’ve sourced delicious soup recipes from some of my favorite bloggers. Get that stock pot, Instapot or Crockpot fired up……
As you’ll see from this curated selection of recipes, when it comes to soup, there very few rules. Use broth, stock or water. Use meat. Use beans. Use vegetables. Use a combo of them or all three. Add dried or fresh herbs and spices. Make it creamy or leave it brothy. Chunky or smooth. Rustic or refined. Add nuts and seeds, finishing oils, exotic ingredients or just use the basics. Soup is forgiving. Another one of the reasons we love it so.….
The only prerequisite for soup? It must be served and eaten piping hot. No warm, lukewarm, tepid, etc. Hot food is to be eaten hot. Period. End of discussion.
