7 Cozy Weeknight Soups

Posted: 11/29/2011 10:56 am

There are lots of reasons to love fall: foliage, fireplaces, football ... But our favorite here at Food52 is the season's promise of soup. Nothing beats tucking into a warm bowl of goodness at the end of a long day, and what better way to shake off the chill of these early winter evenings than by the heat of the stove. Best of all, soups are the perfect weeknight supper -- they're easy to shop for and quick to prepare, and if you make a big enough pot, you'll have leftovers to come home to all week.

We love WinnieAb's proclivity for combining delicious, nutritious ingredients (like the many vegetables in this soup) with a touch of the indulgent (bacon, cheese tortellini). The smokiness of the bacon permeates the minestrone, imbuing the tomatoey broth with a depth of flavor it wouldn't have otherwise. The bright, rustic pesto (we used parsley, but basil would be great too) is a superb final addition, adding a garlicky, herbal kick. - Amanda & Merrill
