Soups

While March is here and spring is just around the corner, it’s still cold outside! So, here are a few of our favourite soup recipes from the Canada Food Guide to warm you up through the grey March days and April Showers that are to come.


Harira (Moroccan Stew) 

https://food-guide.canada.ca/en/recipes/moroccan-stew-harira/
This aromatic soup can be easily made with common spices from your kitchen like cumin and cinnamon, and coriander seeds. It’s hearty, can be frozen easily, and can also be served over rice or quinoa to be extra filling. 

 

Three Sisters Soup  (Corn, Beans and Squash Soup) 

https://food-guide.canada.ca/en/recipes/corn-bean-squash-soup-three-sister-s-soup/

This traditional Native Canadian recipe is the kind of warm, delicious soup that will fill you up. Serve with a slice of brown bread, and you have a great hearty meal for a cold day. 


Red Lentil Mushroom Soup 

https://food-guide.canada.ca/en/recipes/red-lentil-mushroom-soup/
This versatile soup can be made with any type of mushrooms and/or lentils! Just make sure you keep an eye on cooking times because some lentils and some mushrooms cook differently. Don’t like mushrooms at all? Just add carrots and onions instead.

Chicken Noodle Soup

https://food-guide.canada.ca/en/recipes/hearty-chicken-noodle-soup/

The classic soup for colds and cold weather. This soup is made with chicken thighs, which give the soup more flavour, and also save you money! Chicken thighs tend to be a lot cheaper than any other cut of chicken.

All of these soups can be made with a variety of fresh, dried, canned and frozen foods.
