Our best soup recipes are perfect for busy families.

With shortcuts and tons of options for swapping ingredients (and toppings), these soups are a hit with at least three of my four of my kids every time.

And that, my friends, is considered a victory. 

Sausage, Bean & Kale Soup

Full of flavorful sausage with beans, calcium-rich kale and hearty potatoes.

Creamy Tomato Soup with White Beans

You’d never guess that it was pureed white beans making this soup so rich, creamy and filling.

Simplified Beef Stew with Vegetables

Tons of time-saving tips make this gorgeous beef stew doable more often. 

Easy Broccoli Soup (Starts with a Bag of Frozen Broccoli!)

The best soup recipes are often the easiest. That’s why I love this one. My kids call it “Fairy Soup” and slurp up every last drop.

“Thumbs Up to Heaven” Fish Stew

That was the actual review for this faster take on traditional fish stew. Chunky pieces of tender fish melt in your mouth and the zesty flavor is out of this world. 

Slow Cooker Potato Soup

You don’t even have to peel the potatoes. Full stop. Talk about the best soup recipes, this one is my kids’ favorite of all time. 

Rainbow Chowder 

This soup is cheddar-corn chowder with a healthy twist. And a HUGE hit around here.

My favorite tools for making (and serving) our best soup recipes

Dutch Oven: I’ve had my Le Creuset Dutch Oven for a dozen years and love it still. But there are less expensive options available too. The size and heft makes cooking soups even more enjoyable.

Wooden Spatulas: These are ideal for stirring because they get to the bottom of the pan without damaging it. Plus, they aren’t plastic so there’s no risk of accidentally eating it.

Tiny Bowls: For little kids, small servings are everything. I give them a TINY bit of everything. If they like the food? Have more! Kids get to try new foods (win) and control how much (win). These are some of my favorite ways to serve soup to littles.
