Get ready for cold weather with our 18 most popular soups – from dairy to meat and everything in between. Which of these have you made?


  1. Crockpot Onion and Flanken Soup by Naomi Nachman
    Who doesn’t love a big bowl of onion soup? However, making it can be time-consuming, as you have to sauté the onions for a long time while stirring them. This recipe allows you to skip the sautéing, as your crock pot does all the work for you.

  2. Chunky Vegetable Soup by Rorie Weisberg
    Watch how easily this hearty, filling soup comes together here!

  3. Easy Vegetable Soup from the Dining In Cookbook
    Who knew soup could be this easy?

  4. Sweet and Sour Cabbage Soup by Elky Friedman

    It’s all about moderation.


    A “sweet”-and-sour soup like this does contain sugar. But look at the yield and the rest of the ingredients. A half-cup in a huge pot like this will yield only two teaspoons per bowl…and the other ingredients are almost calorie-free.

  5. Mushroom-Barley Soup from the Nitra Cookbook
    Dark, frigid days just make you want to curl up with a bowl of steaming soup. This mushroom-barley has great flavor and is totally filling enough to be a meal on its own.

  6. Cauliflower and Leek Soup by Rivky Kleiman
    Always looking for something new and different led me to concoct this delectable, easy-to-prepare soup.

  7. Tomato Soup with Cheddar Matzah Balls by Danielle Renov
    When cooking for Yom Tov leaves you with a loaded question at dinnertime, what are you serving your family tonight? Danielle has the perfect solution. Cheddar cheese + matzo balls + tomato soup = the best updated version of everyone’s childhood favorite you’ll ever make. Watch Daniella make these in her show Dinner with Danielle.

  8. Tortellini Soup by Esty Wolbe
    Tortellini soup is a complete meal in a bowl that’s on Esty Wolbe’s meal rotation all throughout the winter! Watch Esty Wolbe cook up her latest brilliant, one-pot dinner idea.

  9. Hearty Roasted Vegetable Soup by Faigy Grossman
    I know, I know. Chavi, you’ll never let me forget that you thought of this one and also even tested it for me! Is a public thank you enough? In any case, my sis sure is right — this soup is irresistible, with incredible flavor, due to the roasted veggies and spice combo. A “best-seller” label for this one!

  10. Crockpot Flanken Onion Soup by Michal Frischman
    I really wanted to make onion soup but really didn’t want to be slaving over a pot of caramelizing onions for an hour or more, so I gave it a try in the crock pot. It turned out fantastic! No need for flour or soup mixes to add body. The flanken really turns this into a hearty soup that’s perfect for a chilly night.

  11. French Onion Soup from the Dining In Cookbook
    Classic French Onion Soup with options for a cheesy and parve version, so you can prepare the recipe to your palete. Rich, silky, and so delicious.

  12. Cream of Chicken Soup by Zehava Krohn
    Sukkos is soup season. In many families, a cool fall night in the sukkah always begins with a bowl of soup to warm us up. This heartier, creamy alternative to classic chicken soup makes a satiating first course.

  13. Best Dairy Onion Soup Ever by Brynie Greisman
    My daughter and I ate in a restaurant that had the most incredible onion soup. I’m not usually an onion soup fan, but this one had the perfect texture and flavor. We recreated it here for all of you. It’s so good that when we made a dairy sheva brachos for my niece and had a choice for the soup, almost everyone took this.

  14. Low-Calorie French Onion Soup by Victoria Dwek
    You don’t need soup crocks to make a great French Onion Soup. It doesn’t need to be a ton of calories either (and you don’t need to leave out the bread or the cheese!). Don’t believe it? Then watch.

  15. Mushroom Barley Soup Done Right by Renee Muller
    I know what you are thinking. Really? Mushroom Barley? Hold it, hold it. This is no ordinary Mushroom Barley Soup. This is Mushroom Barley Soup, done right. This is the kind of soup that will sit in my freezer all winter long, divided into small portions, so that Child A will be able to have some any time she wants, without having to wait too long for it to defrost. It’s the perfect Motza’ei Shabbos, Erev Shabbos, before supper is ready, once supper is done, after homework, before bedtime, Sunday lunch, anytime really kinda soul food. Yes. Now you understand.

  16. Butternut Squash Soup by Rachel
    Hearty and delicious!

  17. Cauliflower, Butternut Flanken Soup with Rice Cauliflower Croutons by Ruchele Honig
    Crispy riced cauliflower serves as the “croutons” in this meaty orange squash soup.

  18. 5-Minute Vegetable Soup by Estee Kafra
