Soup Recipes

Discovering and developing great soup recipes is one of my passions. This is a list of many of the best soups I’ve cooked over the years. There are soups for winter and cold weather, but also spring and summer soups. They are nourishing, satisfying, and dynamic in flavor. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.

Dried Fava Soup with Mint and Guajillo Chiles

Dried Fava Soup with Mint and Guajillo Chiles

Easily one of the best, most interesting soups I've cooked in years. Adapted from a recipe in Rick Bayless's Mexican Kitchen - a dried fava bean and roasted tomato base topped with a fascinating cider-kissed tangy/sweet quick-pickled chile topping.

Green Curry Broth

Green Curry Broth

A beautiful, thin green curry broth, fragrant with garlic, lemongrass, and ginger. It gets heat from serrano chiles, and zings of tanginess from fresh lime juice. Cumin and coriander seeds keep things grounded, and a flurry of freshly chopped herbs make the sky open up.

Buttermilk Squash Soup

Buttermilk Squash Soup

A nice way to use up a good amount of summer squash. This soup is a soft, pastel shade of yellow, and aside from a hint of tang from the buttermilk, is quite mild in flavor. I finish it with a cumin brown butter drizzle that punches right through the creaminess, and plenty of chopped chives.

Soup au Pistou

Soup au Pistou

A soup I made for a camping trip to the Sonoma coast - lots of beans, vegetables, and stellette pasta. Tiny stars under the stars, with a good dollop of pistou for each bowl.

Simple Farro & Bean Stew

Simple Farro & Bean Stew

I made a big pot of farro & bean stew for my mom and dad the other night - simple, hearty, and straightforward. The stew has farro, beans, lots of vegetables, and a generous dusting of cheese to top each bowl.

Kabocha French Lentil Soup

Kabocha French Lentil Soup

An anise and ginger-spiked French lentil soup, from a charming little cookbook I stumbled on titled SoupLove. The broth is thickened by lots of roasted winter squash, and it's great with lots of garlicky croutons.

Palak Daal

Palak Daal

A palak daal recipe from Kasa's Anamika Khanna - a hearty pot of spinach, lentils, and spices. Kasa is a favorite Indian restaurant of mine here in San Francisco.

Ribollita

Ribollita

Ribollita, a thick Tuscan stew made with dark greens, lots of beans, vegetables, olive oil, and thickened with day-old bread. One of my favorites.

Red Posole

Red Posole

A big pot of red posole made on a stormy day. A brick-red brothy sauce surrounds the posole, and individual bowls are topped with thin wisps of pan-fried tortillas, a pinch of toasted Mexican oregano, and a bit of crumbled feta.

Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Broccoli Cheddar Soup

A simple, everyday broccoli soup made special with crusty, mustardy croutons. Perfect for those days when I need some extra nutritional punch.
