With the hustle and bustle of the holidays right around the corner, take some time to slow down and enjoy the coziest meal of all: a warm bowl of winter soup. As the temperatures drop, it’s a no brainer and whether you pair it with a salad or sandwich, it’s always a crowd pleaser.

Winter soups can be so simple but they still can conjure up feelings of love and dedication. Speak from the heart and craft some of your family’s favorites. Soup can be as simple as a crockpot meal or an intricate dinner centerpiece. No matter your level of commitment, hearts and bodies will be warmed.

Keep a few things in mind when choosing your menu;
Personalize a recipe by using leftover veggies or maybe some extra pasta to really fill your pot like this Lentil-Veggie Soup with Cheddar Croutons or this Vegetable and Bean Chili.

Cook once and eat twice. Make a large batch for dinner tonight and take the leftovers with you for work tomorrow. You won’t mind eating either of these again and again: Hidden View Farm Cheeseburger Soup or this Spring Green Soup with Scallions & Cheddar Dumplings.

A creamy pureed soup is sure to please even the pickiest eaters. Try this Butternut Squash Soup or go for this Red & Green Tomato Soup.

Go all in! Really make it a meal with this Hearty Cheddar-Topped Sausage Stew or this Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup.

Bonus tip: any of these recipes can be made even creamy by adding in some Greek yogurt when cooking or top them off with a sprinkle of your favorite Cheddar!
