Beef Borscht

Borscht comes in lots of different varieties. The common denominator is the beets that form the base with its dark purple color. This borscht is a hearty beef soup that in addition to beets uses, leeks, celery cabbage, potatoes and flanken, which all come together in a melt in your mouth rich soup with tons of flavor. I love to add marrow bones or beef bones for extra depth. This is a great one pot meal when you are craving a bowl of hearty soup for dinner. (Adapted from Jewish Soul Food)

Split Pea Soup

I love split pea soup on a cold winter night and this one can be made in no time using a pressure cooker. The split peas after cooking for 30 minutes in a pressure cooker or 2-3 hours in a Dutch Oven, will melt down and form a thick broth. My husband loves having a few hot dog rounds floating in his, so if you are up for a non-vegetarian option, try it!

Corn and Calabaza Squash Soup

This is the season for winter squash! This soup makes a great starter for a Thanksgiving feast or any fall/winter meal. Instead of a sweet tasting winter squash soup, this soup uses coconut milk and cilantro along with corn, to create a unique Thai-inspired winter squash soup. Surprise your dinner guests with this unexpected fall soup at your next dinner!

Tortilla Soup

Its always fun to have Soup for Dinner, and you get away with bringing out one pot to the table and you’re done. This is a hearty soup that covers all the bases in one dish - veggies, starch and protein – making it a full dinner meal. Make sure to place a variety of toppings in bowls for everyone to choose from – that’s the best part!

Stuffed Peppers

I love a good one pot meal and this is a family favorite. My family seems to enjoy it when they each get their own stuffed pepper filled with spiced rice, meat and sauce. A bonus here is that the entire meal is cooked in a large dutch oven – and who can resist a one-pot meal? (Adapted from Jewish Soul Food)
