11 Easy Soup Recipes To Celebrate the Start of Soup Season

Easy soup recipes are totally our jam – check out 11 of our favorites just in time for soup season.

I’m not sure if "soup season" is a thing everywhere, but it is in my house and I’m here to make case for trying our favorite easy soup recipes.

Making a big pot of homemade soup to serve along with a crusty loaf of sourdough bread for dinner is one of my favorite things.

When the air gets even a tiny bit crisp, I start making pot after pot of soup and soup season will run all through until the spring thaw.

For others, comfort foods like homemdae meatloaf and mac and cheese are where it’s at – for me it is all about homemade soup.

In honor of the upcoming soup season, here are 11 easy soup recipes worthy of a celebration!
