12 comforting soups


What do I find comforting? I find the Fall very comforting, those cool crisp days. In Italy I haven’t experienced very many yet but the odd one slips in. Finally putting a comforter on the bed and throws on the couch and armchairs, lighting the fireplace, and candles, I love lit candles.

And most of all comfy food. To tell the truth I find most Italian food comforting. But most of all to me there isn’t anything better to warm you up but a delicious, hot Bowl of Soup.

  1. Hearty Chickpea Soup

Ahhh Chickpea Soup, I think I became a chickpea lover when I came to Italy and started making them for my eldest daughter and husband. This was and is her favourite soup! A definite winter must soup.

2. Hearty Tortellini Soup

Tortellini is one of my favourite Italian stuffed pastas, and in a soup? Now that is comforting. Made with fresh ingredients (or use up that can of carrots that you don’t know what to do with)! A thick or thinner soup, you decide. Either way this is more than a soup.

3. Slow Cooker Italian Meatball Soup

I don’t use my slow cooker very often but when I do, I love to make this meatball soup. Made with veggies, delicious spices and of course mini meatballs. Can’t get much better than that.

4. Italian Minestrone Soup

Living in Italy this is one soup everyone has to learn to make. Full of seasonable vegetables, tomato puree and slowly simmered, add your favourite small pasta to make it a meal.

5. Italian Chickpea Soup 

I have to say I never liked chickpeas at all until about 3 or 4 years ago. I would always make this soup for my husband and my daughters who loved it, but not me. And then something came over me and I adore this soup and chickpeas. Who would have thought!
