WHEN THE WEATHER TURNS CHILLY or when the world has got you down, nothing tastes better than a soothing, satisfying bowl of soup or a hearty stew. In a single spoonful, there is a little bit of all kinds of good things. Soup can be some combination of meat, vegetables, noodles, grains, herbs and seasonings, delivered in a savory broth.

These recipes are nicely curated by category, from Beans and Peas to Slow Cooker, Noodles, Pasta and Grains, Chilies and more. If you find yourself in need of a simple solution to the question of what’s for dinner—tonight—or simply need a little bit of comfort, the answer may well be in these pages. Get out a big pot, a sturdy knife and a wooden spoon and stir up some soup.
