There is arguably not a more comforting feeling than enjoying a hot bowl of soup on a cold winter's day. Although it may seem slightly daunting, homemade soup is actually a relatively easy feat, and is always more delicious than something that has been sitting in a can for a couple of months on a grocery store shelf. We decided to ask some of the staff members here at Moffly Media for their favorite soup recipes, and they all sounded not only delicious, but also perfect for a variety of palates, tastes and preferences. Do yourself (and your taste buds) a favor by whipping up your own soup this winter with one (or all) of these recipes.

Butternut Squash Soup

"This is my favorite recipe because it’s really EASY and makes such a colorful presentation. It’s perfect for Thanksgiving, even family members that say they hate squash enjoy it’s nutty flavor and creamy texture."

Ingredients:
1 small yellow onion, chopped
1 rib/stalk of celery, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 Tablespoon salted butter
1 butternut squash (or package of butternut squash pre-cut)
3 cups of chicken broth (College Inn or Swanson’s) Vegetable broth if vegetarian
Pinches of nutmeg, cinnamon and salt and pepper
 
Procedure:

Combine butter, onion, celery and carrot in large saucepan. Cook 5 minutes until your onion is transparent. Add squash and broth.

Bring to boil. Simmer for 10 minutes or until squash is soft (pierce with fork) Puree with hand mixer/blender in pot, or transfer to blender.
 
Add spices to taste. A drop of brown sugar or maple syrup adds a wonderful sweeter flavor. Also a small dollop of mascarpone finishes it off.
