Leek & Potato Soup

From Fine Cooking Magazine

Part of this soup is pureed to add body, but it remains chunky and chowder-like and is also good chilled. If you make it ahead and reheat it, you may need to thin it with a bit of water.

Spinach Egg Drop Soup

From Food & Wine

"A few years ago," Sang Yoon recalls, "I caught a cold and my friend Sal Marino of Il Grano invited me for a bowl of stracciatella alla romana, the Italian soup with egg strands and semolina. I went home and made my own ghetto version with broth from a box, and realized it would taste even better with ginger and spinach."

Pork and Green Chile Stew

From Diabetic Living

Here's a hearty meal-in-a-bowl for those who love pork. The recipe makes several servings, so invite a crowd or serve as leftovers the next day, when the flavors have blended together even more.

Cassoulet

From Fine Cooking Magazine

This recipe serves six generously, and it's easily doubled if you want to make more (leftovers are delicious). If you don't have the traditional deep earthenware casserole, use a 5-quart enameled cast-iron Dutch oven or a ceramic souffle dish--the vessel needs to be wide enough for a crust to form. For pork rind, order it or buy salt pork and cut the rind off, freezing the salt pork for another use.

Soup Beans

From EatingWell

Like poor people everywhere, mountain people in the South thrived for centuries on food that was indigenous, inexpensive and healthful. These days "soup beans" speak instant comfort to anyone who had familial connections from Appalachia, where every garden produced shelling beans that could be eaten fresh or grown to maturity for dry beans. Serve this thick, stewlike soup with cornbread, pickle relish and diced sweet onion.
