60 Winter Soups That Will Warm Your Heart, Soul, and Universe

Hello and welcome to this thing we’re doing where we help you figure out what you’re gonna put in your mouth this week. Some of these are recipes we’ve tried, some of these are recipes we’re looking forward to trying, all of them are fucking delicious. Tell us what you want to put in your piehole or suggest your own recipes, and we’ll talk about which things we made, which things we loved, and which things have changed us irreversibly as people. Last week, we ate mac n’ cheese.


Winter is coming. (Is that joke old yet?) And you might as well get ready for it now, during prime squash and gourd season, to maximize your winter soup lifestyle. There’s nothing like a thick, creamy, substantial, or otherwise totally hot soup to stave off the winter blues and keep you from freezing to death!

  1. I made butternut squash and apple soup a few days ago and it’s deliiiicious! It was my first time making it, so I’d make some tweaks for future batches–but what a lot of recipes fail to mention is adding a liiiiiittle bit of brown sugar. It really makes a world of difference.

  2. this whole post is [prayer hands emoji]

    ALSO i just want to throw in a commendation for the dried fava bean soup with guajillo — i know it may not look remarkable especially given the cornucopia of soups here, but please trust me it is THE BUSINESS.

  3. I got unreasonably excited when I saw the title of this article. And then even more so seeing all the recipes. Thank you for supplying me with soups to get me through the harsh Midwestern winter.
    brb gonna go enjoy my fancy winter minestrone and write a sonnet about it

  4. I live alone, so I have a tendency to get excited about recipes and make lots, freeze the rest, and then decide to make something new. This inevitably ends up with a freezer that looks like I’m preparing for the apocalypse. This column is a wonderful (terrible?) enabler of said habit
