30 Cold-Weather Soups You Can Make in 30 Minutes
Fact: There’s nothing better on a chilly night than a big bowl of soup. But most of us don’t have a spare hour or two to spend slowly simmering a pot on the stove—especially on a weeknight. That’s where we come in, with cozy soups you can make in less than half an hour. Blanket and slippers not required, but strongly recommended.
Chicken Gnocchi Soup
Who needs noodles when you can have gnocchi? Using store-bought makes this totally weeknight-friendly.
20-Minute Broccoli Cheese Soup
The more cheese, the merrier (plus plenty of broccoli to keep the guilt at bay).
Easy 30-Minute Minestrone
Hearty and healthy (eat your heart out, Olive Garden).
Paleo Egg Drop Soup
This super-simple soup is ready and on your table in 15 minutes flat.
Spicy Ancho Turkey Chili
We like ours with a sprinkle of cheddar and a dollop of sour cream.
Vegan Carrot and Ginger Soup
This also freezes perfectly, for not-so-sad desk lunches all winter long.
Chicken Tortilla Soup
This festive soup is great for a crowd. We promise: They’ll never guess it only took 30 minutes.
Easy Pumpkin Soup
We’d never hate on the PSL (or the fact that you can basically buy Pumpkin Spice toothpaste these days). But sometimes, you’ve gotta go with the real thing.
Easy Mexican Chicken Pozole
This traditional Mexican soup is usually simmered for hours on top of the stove; we’ve found that this shortcut tastes just as good, in a fraction of the time.
Green Chickpea Curry with Couscous
We love to keep some store-bought curry paste in our refrigerator, so we can throw together easy veggie-friendly soups like this at the last minute.
Tuscan White Bean, Sausage, and Kale Soup
Bring on those first cold gusts of wind; we’re armed with the heartiest, warmest soup known to man.
Hearty Vegetable Soup with Pesto
We’d eat just about anything with a big spoonful of pesto on top.
One-Pot Cheater’s Bouillabaisse
How did we shave 90 minutes of cooking time off of this delicious Provençal seafood stew? Easy: Cook it in one pot with a smaller selection of seafood.
20-Minute Peanut Noodle Soup with Lime Mango
Slippery rice noodles, a creamy peanut butter base and plenty of tart lime juice. We’re sold.
Quick and Easy Chicken Taco Soup
This easy soup is also super flexible—feel free to load it up with all your favorite toppings.
Easy Hamburger Soup
Because sometimes you just need some classic comfort food.
Instant Pot Zuppa Toscana
Just make us some breadsticks and we’re good to go.
Italian Vegetable Beef Soup
Just like Grandma used to make (but way faster).
Easy 30-Minute Turkey Noodle Soup
It’s chicken noodle’s tasty cousin.
