Soup's On - Three Tasty Soup Recipes

Warm up this winter with these savory soup recipes.

| October 24, 2011

There’s nothing quite like a bowl of hot, savory soup to warm things up on a chilly day.

While making soup from scratch can be satisfying, there isn’t always enough time to devote hours to the process. That’s when products such as Shore Lunch soup mixes come in handy. You add some of your pantry ingredients to the flavorful mixes, and in no time you have a delicious, hearty soup that tastes like you spent all day in the kitchen.

Add style to your meal by serving your soup in individual bread bowls.

For each bowl, get a small round loaf of bread. Cut off the top quarter of the loaf with a serrated knife. Remove the inside bread, leaving 1 to 1 1/2 inches on all sides and the bottom. Brush the inside with a little olive oil, then bake the bread bowls on a baking sheet at 350°F for 10 to 15 minutes.

Here are a few tips for using bread bowls.

  • Bread bowls work best with thicker soups. You may need to leave more bread in the bread bowl to prevent thinner soups from leaking out.
  • Use the bread you removed from the inside of the loaf to make croutons for soup toppings. Cut or tear bread into bite-sized chunks. Brush with some olive oil and season with your favorite herbs. Bake until lightly golden brown.
  • Sourdough is a favorite for bread bowls, but try complementing your soup flavors with other types of bread: wild rice soup with pumpernickel, cheddar broccoli with rye, or potato chowder with a sharp cheddar or asiago cheese bread.

These easy recipes will let you ladle up home cooked goodness the whole family will love:
