Move over, summer. It’s officially soup szn.
As with many things that wind up on the blog, this idea was born on my Instagram when I asked you all to supply me with your top-tier soup season recipes. I had over sixty submissions, but a few of them were two, three, or four-time recommendations (I’m looking at you, Allison Roman’s viral recipe The Stew).
I took the seven most-recommended soup recipes (or the ones that were very similar with minimal variants) and I compiled them in a list for you.

AKA Spiced Chickpea Stew with Coconut and Turmeric.
If you’re having trouble seeing this recipe, open it on a laptop or a tablet. On a phone, it seems to want to redirect you to the NYT Cooking app (which I have and ADORE), but it’s available via their website as well without the app or paywall.
Y’all love this soup a whole bunch. Deanna’s blog and Instagram are super cool too — definitely check her out if you haven’t!
There were a TON of variations of sweet potato soups, but this one had two or three stellar reviews.
This blog post isn’t directly from CT herself, but it’s a repost of the recipe. CT doesn’t list her soup recipe on her website, but it is in her cookbook. This soup came recommended by a few of you for being “not too sweet” and “very delicious because sage and prosciutto,” which had me like… yep. I can do that.
This one in particular has me drooling. Plus, Minimalist Baker is a fount of delicious and easy recipes, as well as easily-adjustable to suit dietary restrictions (which many of them already accommodate anyway).
Full disclosure: I’m still pretty pissed at BA about their lackadaisical reaction to the Black Lives Matter movement and their ineptitude when it comes to paying nonwhite staffers the same as white staffers, but this soup looked good and came recommended a few times.
The soup that started it all. I grew up in the Midwest and cheese soup is a thing, and if you want to really make it a Wisconsin cheese soup, you’ll make it with beer instead of milk. I have no recipe for this since it’s something all of us Midwesterners are born knowing how to make, but this recipe from a butter company felt like the right move.
Hahaha… this is my recipe from earlier this year, but I made it last night and UGH. IT’S SO GOOD.
Add a can of coconut milk when it’s done at the end and thank me later.
If y’all have any more soups that I need to try, comment them below and send me a link! I’d love to know what you’ve got cooking. Literally.
