It’s rainy. It’s windy. And baby it’s cold outside. As New England hunkers down for some seriously cold weather this weekend, I’m reminded of my other favorite frugal family meal. Soup!  Serve it up with some fresh bread and a salad & voila! A simple, healthy meal.

We go meatless several times per week and soup is often on the menu. Going meatless even once per week can stretch your grocery dollars.

Here are some of my favorites:

Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

Sweet Potato and Chipotle Soup

Curried Split Pea Soup

Tomato and Cheddar Soup

Broccoli Soup

Three Bean Vegetarian Chili


Fun soup ideas:

  • Serve it in fancy tea cups as an appetizer. Guests can drink their soup!
  • Invite  some friends over and have a soup swap. Each guest brings one kind of soup for everyone to take home. The amount you make will depend on how many guests you have. We did 2 quarts (8 servings) per person.
  • Put it in a travel mug and take your soup with you. No need to stop at the drive-through, you have a healthy meal to go.

What’s your favorite soup recipe?
