Imagine the scenario. It is a cold winter day. It’s below zero. You’re running home from school as a kid and as you walk through the door, your fingers feeling like they’re about to slip off, your mom says, “Sit down, I’ll make you a nice hot plate.” bowl of soup.” You’ve just heard music to your ears. While it doesn’t necessarily have to be below freezing to enjoy a bowl of hot soup, there’s certainly nothing to beat it when you feel like you’ve been living in the North Pole. And if you can’t decide what kind of soup to warm up with, this article offers some suggestions.
According to old moms’ tales, this type of soup is not only good for warming up, but it is also great if you have a cold. Of course, we mean the ever-popular chicken soup or chicken noodle soup. An entire book could be written just on this type of soup, but the basics are pretty simple. Homemade chicken soup is made from chicken broth and seasonings. You get the broth after cooking the chicken. After that, you can add whatever you like, including noodles, celery, and even whole pieces of chicken if you like. Of course, if you’re too lazy to cook, you always have Campbell’s Chicken Soup. You can get them in many varieties, including their Chunky Soups, which contain some good chunks of chicken.
But chicken soup is not the be all and end all soups. In fact, chicken soup has become so common that many people are dying for a change. Well, they don’t have to die for too long because there are more than enough varieties of soups to keep even the pickiest person happy.
A great soup to add things like small sausages and salami is split pea soup. Split pea soup has a very thick consistency, unlike most other soups. If you’re not a fan of vegetables, especially peas, this probably isn’t a soup you want to try as it tastes so different. You probably won’t want to tackle creating this from scratch. Campbell’s has a very good split pea soup that you can then add your own salami or hot dogs to.
On the other hand, if you like vegetables, then a good vegetable soup is probably something you will enjoy. The great thing about these soups is that you can pretty much put anything you like into them, including celery, carrots, lima beans, and a host of other vegetables. A good vegetable soup can be a meal on its own.
And of course you have their mushroom chowder, clam chowder, New England and Manhattan style, lentil soup, a Jewish favorite, tomato soup, which is great with rice, and even pumpkin soup.
Yes, there are plenty of soups to keep any soup lover more than happy.
