Today I want to talk about my favorite soup recipes. I really love soups a lot. They can be inexpensive, are hardy and filling, you can choose to use meat, or not, and you can make them from scratch, the noodles and all. I have so many favorites when it comes to soups, stews, chowders and the like, but I wanted to pick 5 delicious soup recipes to share with you all.
My Top 5 were hard to choose because there is truly endless options for what you can use to make a soup or stew. Even though I struggled to narrow it down, I think I picked some pretty awesome recipes. These recipes are different from your traditional soups like beef vegetable, or chicken noodle, and this makes them unique and worth a try. I am sure you will enjoy them as much as I do. Don’t forget that you can find printable versions of all recipes that I share on my Freebies page.

Instant Pot Zuppa Toscana
When I am fortunate to be able to afford to go out to eat Olive Garden is one of my favorite spots to sit down and enjoy a meal being served. I love their signature soup, salad, and bread sticks deal. Well I am so cheap I never get to do that, instead I like copycat recipes. This Instant Pot Zuppa Toscana is so delicious with lightly buttered breadsticks or rolls, it is sure to be a favorite of yours too. Download your recipe and find out for yourself.
Slow Cooker Stuffed Pepper Soup
Stuffed peppers are one of my favorite go to’s when I want something different. They are not something we normally get to enjoy much in my household, so when we do it is almost as if they are a treat. This soup is no different. It is easy to make and is full of delicious flavor. The best part is that it cooks in a slow cooker, which means you can prepare it and walk away, making it perfect for hot summer days, or when you know you won’t have much time to stand at the stove to cook. Find your recipe for this favorite soup with all the other great printable recipes on my Freebies page.
Shepherd’s Pie Soup
Who doesn’t love some home cooked Shepherd’s Pie? It is usually warm. filling, and tasty. It reminds me of my grandma because I think of country living, and feeding large households. Shepherd’s Pie Soup is just as tasty as the traditional Pie that is baked in the oven. It is a super quick fix, taking only a half an hour to prepare and cook combined. Being tasty and easy to make both, means that this soup could be served often without much effort. Add this recipe to your collection.
I hope you enjoy these soups as much as I do. Feel free to alter them to suit your tastes or needs.
