Soups For Warming Up This Winter
A mainstay at our buffet restaurants is soup and we’re always adding new ones to our menu. Soups are an easy and delicious way to enjoy seasonal vegetables and flavors. With winter rolling in, some parts of the country will be hit with freezing temperatures. Here are some soup ideas that make for hearty meals that will warm you up and fill you up!
Soups for Cold Weather
Chicken Pot Pie Stew
A Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes original, this soup is a cross between a chicken pot pie and a stew, both dishes that can be very comforting on a chilly winter night. Get the recipe on our blog and serve with your favorite biscuits on the side.
Roasted Butternut Soup
Roasted butternut squash can be pureed with other roasted vegetables like red peppers, onion, and garlic. Season the mixture with herbs and add chicken stock for a bowl of creamy goodness that can be enjoyed while cozied up. Top it off with pomegranate seeds, pumpkin seeds and goat cheese crumbles for an extra bit of flavor and health beneficial nutrients.
Pesto Pumpkin Bisque
Another Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes original, this bisque showcases the sweet flavor of pumpkin, jazzed up with other vegetables and spices for a scrumptious and smooth bowl of warmth. Grab the recipe and don’t forget the basil pesto croutons for added crunch.
Pasta is a good addition to soups when you want to bulk up a flavorful broth for the ultimate cold weather meal. Add macaroni noodles and a handful of shredded cheese to your favorite chili recipe for a mac and cheese chili. Add cheese tortellini to your favorite tomato soup for an upscale take on the classic grilled cheese and tomato soup combo. Add orzo pasta and lemon juice to your favorite chicken noodle soup recipe for a new take on the standard chicken noodle.
Asian Ginger Broth
If you’re feeling like getting creative in the kitchen, go for this Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes recipe. Our popular Asian Ginger Broth makes the perfect foundation for you to create your very own Asian-inspired soup for that chilly day in. Add protein (chicken or tofu), vegetables (spinach, carrots, green onion, broccoli, etc.), and other toppings (wonton strips, mushrooms, bean sprouts, etc.) to make your very own version of our classic.
