Popular Soup Recipes

Let's be clear: You can do much, much better than canned soup. Homemade soup recipes are nothing like those bland, salty concoctions. (Can you imagine your grandma making her chicken soup recipe from a can?) To make great soup, ideally, you want to start with fresh, homemade stock, so keep those carcasses after roasting a chicken! But you can definitely make a great soup with boxed or canned broth, too - the key is to add lots of layers of flavor. The basics are the same whether you're making chicken noodle, beef vegetable, or cabbage soup - you want to lightly sauté the veggies first (and brown the meat, if you're using beef or lamb), then add aromatics and herbs. Yes, herbs! Thyme gives soups a lovely lemony flavor, while bay leaves add depth and earthiness. So ditch the cans and tell your family to get ready for a great homemade dinner - soup's on!

Fruit-and-Nut Chili

Sweet peppers, fragrant garlic, and an aromatic blend of spices (including curry powder and cinnamon) make this chili flavorful. The addition of cocoa powder, almonds, and tart, crisp apples makes it uniquely enticing. Almonds, like all nuts, are susceptible to rancidity due to their high fat content. For optimal shelf life, store almonds in a air-tight container in the freezer, for 3-6 months.
