Easy Soup Recipes

These Easy Soup Recipes are so very good and tasty. Some of them are shock full of vegetables and are complete meals in themselves.

Especially during the colder months you will often find one kind or another simmering on my stove to make super great lunches or dinners.

Chicken soup is my favorite, a real pick-me-upper with an egg salad sandwich on the side. Cream of Asparagus tastes so good especially in spring when all of nature wakes up. Then there is cool cucumber soup in summer. Beef barley, potato, bean, pea or lentil are meals in themselves and excellent winter choices.

Try a recipe or two and let your spirits soar.
