Lick My Spoon


Soups are comforting, easy to make and taste best during those cold, cold winter nights. Not only can they be highly nutritious (if made with homemade broth, vegetables and lean meats), but they can easily be eaten for both lunch and dinner. And while we've all probably had our fair share of chicken noodle and vegetable soup, the soups below a little more diverse.

If you want a few more options, we have an additional 100, (yes, 100) soups here. And in case you missed it, last week we packed gluten-free recipes.
