With just a hint of curry, this gorgeous soup smells almost as wonderful as it tastes. I like to make it in large batches and freeze it for a quick supper all winter long. Add a crusty loaf of bread and a salad and you're got a light, yet satisfying meal. This would also make for an elegant first course at your holiday feast.
Sometimes I fantasize about having a pot of soup simmering away on the stove all day. But in my hectic life, that's not usually the reality. But you can have slow-simmered flavor in a fraction of the time with a few simple tricks. Quality chicken broths in boxes are a time saver when you don't have any homemade on hand, and Italian sausages squeezed from their casing make terrifically flavored meatballs. In less than 30 minutes you can have authentic tasting Italian meatball soup even your Nonna would approve of.
I love to have soup for dinner, and so do the kids. I've found it's a great way to sneak some extra veggies into their diet, and they always enjoy dipping crackers or French bread into the broth. This creamy concoction, more sophisticated than regular chicken and rice soup, gets lots of deep flavors from the mushrooms and wild rice, so it's equally enjoyable for the adults in the family.

This is a warming, hearty, and simple recipe that turns all your odds and end of winter vegetables into a giant pot of nourishing soup. You can prep the veggies in order as the soup cooks, and if you don't have any stale bread to add, you can do without -- but it does lend the soup a satisfying robustness Let your kids add their own cheese and a splash of olive oil from a small pitcher: they'll love feeling involved in their dinner.
