The Big Soup and Stew Roundup (with meaty and meatless options for #MeatlessMonday)

The Big Soup and Stew Roundup: 53  soup and stew recipes with meaty and #MeatlessMonday options by @SpicieFoodie | #stew #soup

Soups and stews are comfort food. To me, it really does not matter if they are meat based or vegetable only, I won’t turn down a bowl. Soups, and stews, can be made with an elaborate amount of ingredients or they can be thrown together with whatever refrigerator scraps need to be used up. Preparing a pot requires minimal effort and clean up. A bowl keeps you warm and content on a cold winter day or on a rainy night.

“Evidence of the existence of soup can be found as far back as about 20,000 BC.”*

Do you really need any more reasons to make a pot? No, you don’t. Here are 53 soup and stew recipes that can be prepared with a meat option or a meatless one too — perfect, since today is #MeatlessMonday. Enjoy the links and if you would prefer a more visual guide visit my “Soups and Stews” board on Pinterest for all the links.

OMG [sorry Nancy!] ~ you have posted us a full and wonderful cookery book!!!! Thank you for ‘doing all the work’ [tho' in your case I doubt you would count it as 'work'!!] and allowing us to gain all the benefits so easily!! Should definitely not pick favourites, but the ‘Tom Ka Gai’ from Sarah’s unreally beautiful blog ‘Thyme’ kind of ‘pips’ some of the others! Thank you again!!!!!


12 Spicie Foodie January 27, 2014 at 8:36 PM

Not need to apologise, Eha. I’m glad you found a favourite among these 53 recipes. Thank you and enjoy the Tom Ka Gai.

I am a big stew and soup eater… I love all these wonderful soups. :) Wish I could just sit in bed and order them one at a time like room service and just enjoy them.


19 Spicie Foodie February 2, 2014 at 1:37 PM

Thank you Ramona. Room service would be nice;)

I love roundup posts (great to keep in one file for later use, and to check what I missed in the past, or great reminder). And you included my recipes – now I love even more. :D Thank you for including my recipes! So sorry to be here late to thank you. Have been very busy; therefore, soups and stews are great help to feed my family. Loved this inspiring roundup post!
