Warm and Cozy Soups

By: Kirsten Vala

There's nothing better than a steaming bowl of soup on a cold winter evening, and Cooking Channel chefs are heating things up with an eclectic mixture of soup styles, from classics to fantastic twists.

Three reasons to make more soup:
  1. The stretch factor makes them budget-friendly and good for feeding crowds. Extra guests? Throw a little more broth and veggies into the pot.
  2. Leftover soups freeze well and make great homemade lunches if you freeze in single serving portions.
  3. They're infinitely riff-able! Sure, it's good to have a recipe as a guide and for inspiration, but if you happen to have some extra veggies or meat hanging out in your fridge, it's a soup waiting to happen.
