A Year of Delicious Soups

Category Soups
Soup is a versatile and frugal way to feed your family. This year, ThriftyFun will be sharing a different delicious soup every week. These recipes have been tested by our active members and should freeze well. By making a double batch, you will have leftovers for lunches and dinners, making mealtime a snap.

We have included a wide variety of seasonal soups. There is at least one vegetarian option every month, although many soups can be easily made without meat or meat-based broth. Any Instant Pot or slowcooker recipe can also be made on the stove, just increase the cooking time and adjust the amount of water or broth accordingly.

If you have any favorite seasonal soups, please feel free to send them in. Not only will the recipe be entered in our Recipe contest, it also may be picked as our weekly soup recipe.
