Winter Vegetable Soup Recipe (2024)

Last Modified: by Paleo Leaper · This post may contain affiliate links · Leave a Comment

There are plenty of recipes more glamorous than vegetable soup. If you want something to win first place in a modernist cuisine competition, pick another recipe. But if you’re looking for a trusty, belly-warming dinner that you can get on the table in half an hour, vegetable soup is a standby that won’t let you down.

Winter Vegetable Soup Recipe (1)

Just in time to use up any lingering turkey leftovers from Thanksgiving, this recipe continues the vegetable-soup tradition of winter vegetables in a thick, savory broth.

Pop it on the stove and throw together a quick side salad while the windows steam up and the aroma of tomatoes and sage starts drifting from the pot. By the time the salad is done, and the table is set, it’ll be ready to pour into bowls (or a thermos bottle for a quick workday lunch).

I like adding cooked chicken or turkey to make the soup a little richer, but you could also throw in some ham or any other leftover meat in the fridge.

This would be a wonderful surprise for an elderly relative or anyone else in your life who could use a little help with chores or housework right now, especially since it freezes very well – why not make a double batch and pass some healthy holiday spirit on to your neighbors?
