Start with store-bought broth as your base to create more than a dozen hearty bowls of soup that will taste totally homemade. Pass the spoons!
What's better than homemade soup on a chilly day? Cut down on prep time with these recipes that all start with a store-bought broth, whether it be chicken, beef, tomato, or butternut squash. Each recipe transforms the base into a hearty meal of its own.
You can store all soup bases in airtight containers in the fridge for up to three days or in the freezer for up to three months. Make them ahead—and dinner will be ready in less than 30 minutes.
All soup recipes make at least enough for six servings. Pack any leftovers in the kids’ school lunches.
Salt isn’t added to most recipes because even lower-sodium store-bought stocks have quite a bit. But season to your taste.
