Soup is the ultimate comfort food, whether spicy hot or nicely chilled, chunky or smooth, light or hearty. But making homemade soup doesn't have to be an all-day kitchen project! This cookbook features one hundred soups that have been streamlined with shortcuts, making it simple to ladle out a hot and healthy dinner in the time it takes for a pizza to be delivered. Some are created with a few minutes of assembly time and a few hours in the oven or slow cooker; others can be stirred up on the spot. And each delicious dish has a picture of the finished recipe so you will know how to serve up a bowl that looks as good as it tastes. Whether you're serving one-pot dinners like Salmon Chowder and Root Beer-Braised Beef Stew, or delicious meal additions like Curried Carrot Bisque and Tangy Strawberry Soup, your family will cheer every time they hear that soup's on!
