Nourishing Soups for Cold and Flu Season
By Erin Odom, Contributing Writer
Fall finally arrived in North Carolina this week, and instead of short sleeved shirts and flip flops, we’re finally donning the comfortable hoodies and fur-lined slippers.
And now it’s time to break out the soup recipes.
I’m the type that could eat soup all year round, but my husband is a different story. So we make a compromise and eat soup about once per week from about October through March.
We’ve been talking about a lot of home remedies this month, and let me tell you about just about the easiest and cheapest remedy ever: a homemade soup! Especially if made with homemade bone broth, soups are super nourishing.
Without further ado, check out these nourishing soups for cold and flu season:
- Mushroom Soup with Herbs
- Spud Special Soup
- Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup
- Cream of Tomato Soup
- Hamburger Soup
- Creamy Potato Soup with Veggies
- Canned Soup Replacement
- Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup (used as a base in a casserole or eaten alone)
- Cheeseburger Soup
- Garlic Leek Soup with Egg (Katie is actually running an entire month of nourishing soups!)
- Simple Soup for Spring and Summer
If you’re ready to branch out, be sure to check out how to make a soup from scratch without a recipe.
Spud Special soup sounds fantastic! (Especially since it’s pretty run-of-the-mill ingredients.) I am making this for my family tonight with a few slices of bacon thrown in. 🙂
I subscribe to your newsletter, but I can’t figure out where to download the Sizzlin Soups ebook. The link in the newsletter takes me here: http://thehumbledhomemaker.com/2013/10/free-ebook-for-subscribers-sizzlin-soups.html but I do not find a download link at all. Am I blind?
We make a chicken soup with various root vegies like carrots, sweet potato, swede, parsnip and celeray. Lots of ginger, garlic and onions, thyme, rosemarry and all spice. All fresh and made from scratch, its a flu buster. We mash up left overs and make it into a sandwich spread the next day.
