By , SparkPeople Blogger

On a chilly fall afternoon or blustery winter night, a steaming potage ranks right up there with a hot bubble bath when it comes to keeping warm. Luckily, soup has a lot more going for it than its temperature. It's easy to cook, easy to serve, easy to eat, easy to reheat—are you sensing a theme here? Plus, if you're looking to ramp up your family's nutrition, it's the perfect medium for sneaking veggies past picky eaters.

This is a great selection of soups, Melissa - thanx for gathering these! One of my favorites is a Martha Stewart lentil soup:

I don't use the mushroom stock she recommends; I simply use a low-sodium vegetable stock. And while I usually have puy (French) lentils on hand, I have substituted brown lentils before.
These all look good. I love soup year round. Report
thank you Report
