Hello and welcome to Kelly’s Kitchen. We are less than a week from Thanksgiving and while you may be making your shopping lists, collecting your serveware and cleaning out your fridge to make room for the turkey, I am here with a few ideas for what to eat before the day arrives. We are having a cold snap here in Athens and all I can think of making are warm and comforting soups. So today, I'm sharing 6 soups for the soul.
The great thing about soups is that you can switch out and swap veggies and meat depending on what you have on hand. They’re great for using up leftover bits from the fridge. On another note, if you’re like us and have started to veer away from the traditional Thanksgiving dishes in favor of doing things differently, we made this Cioppino (below) for our Thanksgiving last year and it was a welcome change!

Welcome to Sunday Supper! Today we have a beloved San Francisco dish. Invented in the late 1800’s by the Italian fishermen of San Francisco’s North Beach. Cioppino is a healthy, hearty tomato-based seafood stew that contained the leftover seafood from the day’s catch. So you can get creative with your favorite seafood and shellfish. I have a seafood blend from Trader Joe’s with scallops, shrimp and calamari. Also, I have some wild caught Alaska cod and Bar Harbor canned clams.
Hello and welcome to Sunday Supper! We are back in Athens and it’s nice to be home, but I will say that we are already missing Tybee. To soften the re-entry to the regular day-to-day, I think some Chicken Noodle Soup is in order. I asked Alex to smoke a chicken for this recipe and I am glad I did, because while I would have been happy with a store-bought rotisserie chicken, the smoked chicken really added a ton of amazing flavor. The other incredible flavor boost in this soup is dill. A lot of dill.
Hello and welcome to Djalali Cooks! We have quite a bit of leftover chicken from a chicken cooking method test, so today I have a great way to put chicken leftovers to use. Coconut Curry Soup with Shrimp and Chicken is rich, fresh and it’s a super satisfying soup to enjoy in warm weather – thanks to the coconut and lime. It has a salty, sweet, sour, spiciness that really hits the spot. Based on a Thai coconut soup dish, we are using red curry today, but green curry paste would make an excellent substitution. Let’s get right to it!
Hello and welcome, everyone! This week’s frigid temperatures around the country mean one thing to me: Chicken Soup, stat! I have been pining for Avgolemono Soup for a while now, and this week, the time was right! Avgolemono Soup is a Greek Lemon and Chicken Soup with rice, carrots, celery and onion. It’s creamy thanks to a silky beaten egg, lemon juice and broth mixture (the avgolemono sauce), which makes this dairy-free recipe so very comforting.
Hello and welcome, Everyone! To celebrate Lunar New Year on Friday, February 12, how about some Wonton Soup with homemade wontons? I won’t lie, wontons take time, but if you have a helper it’s a fun activity to do together. If you don’t have a helper (I did not) it’s a meditative experience, so settle in and go with it! I promise that because you made the wontons yourself, this will be the best wonton soup of your life – a perfect way to welcome the Year of The Ox.
Hello and welcome to Sunday Supper! Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy chicken noodle soup. While the traditional version of this comfort food might not be high on your summer cooking list, this Coconut Chicken Noodle Soup is a great alternative. The Thai flavors of coconut milk, lime, cilantro and ginger make this chicken noodle soup a perfect summer soup. With shredded rotisserie chicken, rice noodles, mushrooms and red bell peppers, it’s a hearty yet light and satisfying soup with a ton of savory flavor. Let’s do it!
