Celebrating National Soup Month

temp-post-image

In our opinion, there’s nothing better than hot soup on a cold winter day which makes it even more exciting that January is National Soup Month! In honor of one of the most versatile dishes, we’ve put a list together of some of our signature soups. Check out how you can incorporate them as the star or side of your next meal.

Tomato Bisque
Spice up a childhood favorite with a tomato bisque and gourmet grilled cheese. Swap out the white bread for a sourdough (or your favorite bread), and go crazy with the cheese! Instead of just using American, add in some cheddar, gruyere, mozzarella and any other cheeses you’re into. There’s nothing more classic than tomato soup and grilled cheese, but these modifications add a flavorful and comforting twist that elevates the traditional delicious flavors.

Beef Minestrone
If minestrone had a best friend, it would be bread, but you don’t just want any old breadsticks. Try scoping out a local bakery for some fresh bread of your choice. If you’re in a pinch, grab your favorite bread from the grocery store. No matter what bread you’re using, the important part is taking the time to bake it with some garlic butter until it’s crispy and warm (about 3-4 minutes). Finally, to balance out this meal, put together a spring salad with a balsamic vinaigrette dressing to incorporate some bright flavors.

Chicken Tortilla
Chicken tortilla soup goes great with just about anything, but a side of elote (corn) adds a special something you’ll want to eat every night of the week. Grab an ear of corn on the cob or to make things even easier, grab a bag of frozen corn or canned corn and bring it to a boil. Once your corn has boiled for 3-5 minutes (or when fully cooked through) add some cotija cheese or queso fresco and a mixture of mayonnaise and your favorite hot sauce. Get the full recipe here.

Celebrate National Soup Month in style with these soups and sides that are sure to impress any guests or coworkers, and don’t miss out on our soup and sandwich special that will be running the entire month of January!
