5 Soup Recipes to Warm Up Your Menus

Some classic soups with a twist to inspire your fall to winter offerings

By Sarah Ann Noel - November 3, 2017

It's 36-degrees in Denver today; 50-degrees in London; 44-degrees in Chicago. The point? Winter is coming. The cold is moving in. What's more, with Daylight Savings ending, the days end quicker, and guests are looking for the comforts of warm, familiar food that's quick and easy. 

We think a great way to add the warmth is by amping up your soup offerings, so our restaurant consultants have gathered five more classic recipes with some great twists. Hopefully these will inspire your menus!
  1. Rosemary Chicken Noodle: When the temperatures fall and there's a chill in the air, everyone's mind floats toward a homey, comforting chicken noodle soup. But dress it up so it's not reminiscent of something from a can. We like this rosemary option from Gimme Some Oven.
  2. Cauliflower-Cashew: The best thing about a cauliflower soup is its creamy effect can be dairy-free (it's always good to have a vegan offering). Bon Appetit has a simple recipe with crispy buckwheat that we think you should try.
  3. Sausage and Kale: Leave it to Martha Stewart for a great take on something hearty and nutritious; your guests will love the flavor, and the kale provides necessary winter vitamins. 
  4. Red Lentil, Sweet Potato, Coconut: The English love to eat curries in the winter to battle the chill of a British winter; this Jamie Oliver soup is a nod to that tactic, with the filling inclusion of lentils and sweet potato to make a bowl of soup meal-worthy.
  5. Chicken Posole: If you want something Tex-Mex but want to stray from the common tortilla soup options, we love this slow-cooked chicken posole from Delish.
