Seasonal Soup Recipes For Spring

As soon as winter is over we immediately look forward to all the wonderful vegetables that will soon be stocked in the markets -- asparagus, peas, leeks, greens, artichokes and more. But as we wait for spring weather to truly show its warmth, we're often still stuck with chilly weather. So, what's a person to do? Make spring soups of course! Warm and creamy, hot and brothy, chunky and packed with vegetables -- these are the soups that keep us cozy while we wait for the promise of warmer weather.

As you can probably tell from looking through our slideshow, most of our recipes are green! But besides the classic asparagus soup and pea soup, we've got creamy carrot soup, spring onion soup, artichoke soup and more. Enjoy a hot soup on a chilly night for a quick and simple supper -- just add a chunk of crusty bread and you're all set for a fresh and refreshing dinner.

What's your favorite spring soup? Let us know below.
