4 Vegetarian Soups from Around the World to Warm Your Soul on Chilly Days

February 5, 2013

As I type this post, I’m looking out the window in sunny Texas. I’m about to go for a jog with my family. It feels a little silly to be writing about soups that warm the soul when it’s 70 degrees out. Yet, it’s the beginning of February and I know how much of the country is snuggled inside on these cold winter days. Soup is such a comfort in the winter, so friends in colder places — these soups are for you!

These soups are all a bit unusual and from different cultures. They will take you somewhere new this winter. In that spirit… Buen Provecho.

#4 Tom Ka (Thailand)

Lemongrass and coconut milk make this soup special. Easy to make, but tastes very complex.

#3 Harira (Morocco) 


The cinnamon in this soup adds a special dimension to this soup.

#2 Crushed Red Lentil Soup (Lebanon) 


Simple but oh so good. A lot of lemon juice brightens up this dish. Serve with rice and salad for a simple meal.

#1 Fire Roasted Tomato and Chickpea Soup (Indian Spices, not a traditional Indian Dish) 

Serve with grilled cheese for a grownup indulgence!
