Our best soups to warm you up

Soup season is here!

And who doesn’t like a good soup? Here are some of my favorite recipes, some that I cook in advance for busy nights and others that I freeze in case of emergency. Check them out—I’m sure you’ll find more than enough to warm you up on a cold day!

Italian wedding soup

No, zuppa di matrimonio isn’t just for weddings! Make it on any occasion, big or small. Even if this soup won’t guarantee a happily ever after, there are still plenty of things to love about it. You prefer an already made soup? Head on to the soup section at your local grocery store. Our Italian wedding is ready for you.


Tortellini in brodo

Homemade tortellini is a labour of love that the whole family can help with. A classic dish from Emilia-Romagna that highlights the region’s most famous foods: Parmiggiano Reggiano, mortadella, and prosciutto in a simple yet flavourful homemade broth. The best of Bologna in a heartwarming meal.

Thaï coconut and tomato soup

To escape for dinner or warm up on a cold day, reach for my Thai coconut and tomato soup recipe! Ginger, cumin, turmeric, coriander, tomato, and coconut, it has everything you need to take you away. Add grilled shrimp or chicken pieces and vermicelli to turn it into a hearty meal.


Tuscan chickpea and pastina soup

When you’re looking for a heart-warming and hearty soup, look no further than Tuscany. Packed with vegetables and legumes, this soup is filling and tasty. Simplicity in a bowl! Serve it with parmesan cheese and a nice crispy bread roll.

Cabbage soup with meatballs

This creamy cabbage soup recipe can be vegetarian or made with our ready-to-cook meatballs divided into mini meatballs. A nutritious and inexpensive hearty soup with little to no dishes. Pro tip: leave it in the fridge for 2-3 days, you’ll taste the difference!


Sausage, kale and cannellini soup

Barley is inexpensive, filling, and nutritious. This northern-Italian soup is ideal when you’re hosting a large group of people, as it doesn’t require too much time or attention — just assemble and stir occasionally. That way you can enjoy your guests and not be confined to the kitchen.

Quinoa, chicken, and sweet potato soup

You can never have too many hearthy soup recipes! This one is gluten-free, economical and nutritious. I like to make it in large batches for lunches and it can be frozen! It’s a good way to use leftover roast chicken. You can also replace the quinoa with barley or leftover cooked rice.



Acquacotta translates to cooked water, but it also means Tuscany by the spoonful. This is another great example of cucina povera, where humble ingredients are transformed into a supremely satisfying meal. Here, our version is vegan but feel free to add a poached egg and/or some grated parmesan for an extra kick.

Spicy clam and corn chowder

Here’s a tomato based variation of the classic “New England clam chowder.” Less heavy and rich than the creamy version, this recipe is packed with flavour! There is of course an Italian touch in my version of the recipe by adding arrabbiata sauce. The little extra that was missing to give character to this soup!


Meatball minestrone

The most Italian of Italian soups. Normally without meatballs, I sometimes like to add small ones to make it even heartier. With chard, squash, and beans, it’s a nutritious and comforting soup fit for a meal.
