Cooking hearty, warming meals to get you through the winter months doesn’t have to take hours in the kitchen and a ton of ingredients. Some of the best comfort food is simple and flavorful, like a hot, fragrant soup. Cooking Light has a list of recipes for 5 ingredient soups that are not only easy to make, they call for ingredients that can be easily stored. This is especially helpful for those of us who are homesteading, or preppers looking for ways to stretch ingredients.
Included in this list are recipes for trusty, popular dishes like chili and fresh ideas like the chicken escarole soup. None of these recipes are labor intensive or time consuming-each one is table ready in 30 minutes or less! Key ingredients like chicken broth give these soups a slow-cooked flavor without all the fuss. My favorite aspect of these recipes is that they are flexible – different meats can be substituted if you don’t have what’s called for, and vegetarians can easily modify the ingredients.
