Egyptian Lentil Soup

Lentil soup isn’t something I’ve made often — decided to give this EatingWell recipe a try. Pretty simple, filling. John had seconds, so I’ll consider that an endorsement.

Minestrone Soup

A traditional and satisfying minestrone recipe. This ended up being the last soup of the Soups of the World challenge.

Sausage and Chicken Gumbo

This might be my new favorite gumbo recipe. I made this for our holiday potluck, along with a delicious vegetarian gumbo z’herbes recipe you can find in my friend Stephanie’s New Orleans cookbook.

Chicken Thukpa

My friend Priya sent me this recipe that she considers comfort food. I quite enjoyed it and it was one of the more interesting ones for the challenge.

Turkey Posole

We heard this recipe on the drive home from Pittsburgh and I knew I had to make it using some turkey leftovers.

Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons

It was nice to work a tomato soup into the challenge. This one was a little heavy on the orzo (and the grilled cheese croutons were cute but not as satisfying as a sandwich), but it was still a nice winter dinner.

Spinach Tortellini En Brodo

This soup was actually pretty terrific, though I recommend cooking the pasta separately. If you store the tortellini in the broth, it gets soggy.

Cantonese Roast Pork and Wonton Soup

This is the second wonton soup I’ve made for the challenge, basically because I wanted to make char siu so I had some leftover (AND I still had frozen wontons from the last time I made soup, so even easier). I loosely based the recipe on this one but using my own pork and wontons.

Matzoh Ball Soup with Caramelized Onions

For the challenge, I made this matzoh ball soup from Todd Gray’s Jewish cookbook and really liked it. It takes some time (you have to caramelize onions for the matzoh balls, for example) but I think it might replace my usual go-to recipe when I have the time for it.
