Thai Green Chicken Soup
Chicken soup soothes the soul (not a scientific fact yet, but it may as well be). Here we infuse the broth with fragrant curry paste, fresh ginger, and cilantro to wake up the senses. If you’re looking to clear congestion, add a few slices of fresh jalapeño to the stock mixture while it simmers. Remember to sauté the chicken just until no longer pink, otherwise the pieces may become tough in the finished soup.
Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
Go ahead and flag this recipe—it's sure to become a family favorite. For convenience, we call for precooked wild rice; if you can't find it, you can substitute 2 cups of your own cooked wild rice or a package of precooked brown rice.
Fire-Roasted Tomato-Basil Soup
Start with canned fire-roasted tomatoes to give the soup some smoky depth. Serve with sliced toasted sourdough and steamed broccoli from your list.
Curried Lentil-and-Vegetable Stew
Cooking Indian dishes at home doesn't have to take hours. Unsalted ketchup is a secret ingredient that adds just the right balance of tomato sweetness and vinegar tang. Serve with lime wedges and toasted naan bread.
Green Gazpacho with Shrimp
Fresh bread gives gazpacho body, making it a substantial summer entrée soup. Use bread from the bakery section for the best results (bread from the supermarket aisle can be overly soft and sweet).
