Soup and Stew Favorites

A few of our favorite soup and stew recipes.

Waiting on cooler temperatures has been a lesson in patience for me. Not only does cooler weather mean snuggly sweaters, colorful leaves, crispness in the air, but it means it’s time for warm soups and stews, the kind that fills the home with those comforting aromas we all know. We have a few favorite soup and stew recipes here that we’ll cozy up to in the next couple of weeks.

My daughter’s favorite, White Bean Chicken Chili, so simple and easily adjusted to what you have on hand. Make a big batch and freeze some for later.

Sweet Potato Soup w/ Walnut Pesto. A combination of white beans and sweet potatoes make this a hearty and healthy option.

Italian Style Garbanzos with Sausage. This isn’t a soup per se, but I’m planning on making it one with the addition of more tomatoes and a vegetable or beef stock. Drooling just thinking about it.

And of course, soups and stews wouldn’t be complete without a friend. Give these Cheddar Jalapeño Cornbread Muffins a try – you won’t be sorry!

And there’s more!

    I love soup and stew after the summer fare. My husband would love the Italian Style Garbanzos with Sausage. Can’t wait to try it. It needs to get a little cooler around here first, though. ;)

    Oh boy – now I’m hungry! Soup season is the best, and who can resist cornbread muffins to tag along?

    I agree! Here in Florida, we natives get so excited every time temps drop even if it’s just 10 degrees like it’s supposed to this weekend. Either way, soups somehow find their way into the menu even if we have to turn down the AC. :)

    Now getting ready for soups…this morning has enough chill in the air to think about cooking them. One of my favorites is an Italian Onion Soup. I cook an entire bag of onions overnight in the crockpot and then it’s as simple as combining them with an easy to make stock recipe and topping with Parmesan. I do love a great French Onion soup…but this is so much easier and doable on a regular basis.

    I haven’t had breakfast yet but am now craving a bowl of soup. Your Sweet Potato Soup with walnut pesto in fact!
