I’m fairly certain I inherited my mother’s gene for being resourceful with just a few ingredients in the kitchen. Case in point: Eric and I were going to attend a party and we were asked to bring an appetizer. We didn’t have time to run to the store, so I rifled through our pantry and scrounged up some corn tortillas that were a little past their taco prime, a few cherry tomatoes, and an avocado that was surely about to go bad any day.

Easy Homemade Vegetable Soup + 9 Soups to Keep You Cozy This Winter

Soup season is my jam! Nearly every week I make a big batch of soup or chili and Eric and I eat it for lunch all week. It’s simple, comforting and soooo delicious! Plus, during cold and flu season, I like to think a little hot broth and a dash of turmeric helps to boost my immune system!

One of my go-tos is a basic homemade vegetable soup, like the chicken noodle soup you might eat when you’re sick. It’s a perfect way to use up any vegetables or beans that might go bad soon and it’s hearty and healthy. Once I make this basic recipe, I add to it based on what I have around.

Extra lentils? Toss ’em in! Water from pasta made the night before? You bet I save that and add it to the pot! It makes for a new flavor every time, which keeps this soup exciting.
