2. Ginger Garlic Noodle Soup With Bok Choy

Bok choy is a popular Asian vegetable, and it’s not just for spring!

If you’re new to this recipe, I suggest making the broth base first.

You can serve the soup on its own or with noodles.

For a vegetarian version, try adding some tofu and mushrooms or chicken tenders.

Chicken breast would be nice here if you don’t have any roast chicken.

You can also add some sauerkraut and more veggies if you like.

This Asian spicy noodle soup is the perfect winter warmer!

Thick, flavorful noodles are packed with meaty ground pork and fresh veggies.

Then, you top it off with a tangy balsamic glaze.

Tom Kha Gai is the perfect soup to make when you want a warm, comforting bowl of deliciousness.

It’s chock full of fresh herbs and has an earthy taste thanks to the broth.

It also features a sweet chili paste that adds a warming pop of spice.

The chicken in this dish is tender, so it’s perfect for using up leftover chicken or fish.

It’s hearty and satisfying, so serve it with rice or noodles for a complete meal.

5. Wonton Soup

If you love the taste of wontons, but hate those crunchy bits in the broth, try this recipe for wonton soup instead.

It’s still as good or even better than your favorite Chinese dish.

You can use it as a base to make other dishes with if you have any leftover ingredients.

You could also simply serve it by itself.

However, I like to serve a bowl of rice with it.

6. Japanese Clear Onion Soup

Packed with flavor, this Japanese clear onion soup makes a great base for any entree.

It’s also one of the most popular dishes in all of Japan and is especially popular at Okonomiyaki restaurants.

Cook onions and garlic until they’re fragrant and caramelized.

Then add canned tomatoes, sautéed onions, and ground beef to create an incredibly flavorful base.

Then just drizzle over your favorite sauce (or use a mix if you prefer) and simmer away!

7. Hot And Sour Soup

This soup is a Korean staple, and most of us prefer it hot.

It’s known to be an energy-boosting dish that packs heat.

Fortunately, the recipe doesn’t require the stovetop.

It takes only 20 minutes to make this classic broth and contains fresh veggies, which are perfect for summer.

Serve with a side of rice or noodles for a filling meal.

8. Vegetarian Laska Soup

Laska soup is a nutritious, wholesome, and delicious recipe that’s perfect for vegetarians.

The broth is made with chickpeas to make it meaty and filling, while the spices add texture.

This soup is both vegetarian-friendly and vegan-friendly!

11. Oxtail Soup

This aromatic soup is rich and flavorful, with a hint of spice.

The meaty oxtail is cooked in the slow cooker with aromatics, vegetables, and spices.

It’s then simmered until tender, making this a hearty winter soup.

Serve it over rice or noodles for a filling meal that’ll warm you up on frigid days.

12. Potsticker Soup With Thai Coconut Curry Flavor

Here’s another soup that’ll blow your mind.

To make this, you’ll use a basic chicken stock base to flavor the broth.

Then the rest of the ingredients are tossed in and cooked until they thicken.

That means you get a thick stew made with mushrooms, veggies, and plenty of umami flavors.

Once it’s done, serve with garnishes such as steamed rice or cucumber slices to soak up some extra flavor.

This tomato egg drop soup is a little different from the others on this list.

Instead of a rich chicken broth, you’ll get a nice, light tomato base that will leave you feeling satisfied without weighing you down.

Plus, it has egg noodles and cheese for extra texture and flavor.

This casserole-style soup is another great option if you need something filling without having to spend hours preparing it.

15. Harusame Soup

Harusame soup is a traditional dish from Japan.

It’s made with thin noodles, sweet tomatoes, and soft fish.

You can serve it with katsuobushi or chashu to make it more Japanese.

I like to serve it with the yummy fishy topping but you can add whatever you prefer.

If you’re not familiar, katsuobushi is a type of dried bonito flake.

They’re very similar to sardines, but they’re smaller (about 1/8 inch).

Chashu is another popular topping for harusame soup.

This hearty dish calls for the chicken shank, which is usually served in restaurants.

16. Tom Yum Soup

If you’re looking for a flavorful soup that everybody will love, look no further.

Tom yum is like a Thai version of what you eat in Bangkok, with the same red curry paste used to flavor curries.

It adds such a deep and complex flavor to this soup, which will make your taste buds dance with excitement!

17. Thai Clear Soup With Chicken And Tofu

This one-pot Thai soup is both easy and can feed a crowd.

It’s made with clear broth, which means you won’t need to worry about overcooking the veggies.

The broth is made from chicken and tofu simmered in a coconut milk base.

This makes for an unbelievably creamy soup that tastes amazing.

Packed with protein, vitamins, and minerals, it is also loaded with antioxidants.

So although it’s healthy, it sure doesn’t taste unhealthy!

18. Dumpling Soup

Dumplings are always a good choice for soup because you can easily make multiple batches without changing the recipe.

Plus, they’re hard to mess up.

The thing that makes dumplings really great is how they absorb the broth and become soft while they cook.

This soup has so much flavor with just four ingredients.

It’s sweet, savory, and comforting all in one bowl.

19. Korean Chicken Soup

This thick and hearty soup is made with chicken, barley, carrots, red pepper flakes, garlic, and ginger.

It’s spicy and savory from the red pepper flakes.

It also has a hearty satisfying flavor from the rice and chicken.

Best of all, this soup is super easy to make!

So if you want a warm bowl of comfort food on a chilly night, it’s your best bet.

20. Miso Soup

This recipe is one of my go-to winter soups, and I use it as a base for all sorts of Japanese recipes.

The combination of miso paste, chicken stock, and carrots makes this soup a huge hit.

You can swap out the veggies depending on what you have on hand.

If you like your soup with a savory flavor, use onions or garlic instead of carrots.

Or add in some shiitake mushrooms for some meaty umami goodness!

21. Hibachi Mushroom Onion Soup

I once had a friend who told me she couldn’t live without soup for lunch.

She would have it in the morning and throw on some chicken or turkey sandwiches, then stay up late in the afternoon to make enough for dinner.

That’s how I feel about this soup.

It’s creamy, garlicky, earthy, and super flavorful.

You really can’t go wrong with that combination!

Serve it over rice with a side of fresh veggies for a fresh and filling meal.

22. Cabbage Egg Drop Soup

If you love egg drop soup as much as I do, this is the recipe for you.

It’s just like the real deal, but easier!

23. Tantanmen

Tantanmen is another popular Chinese dessert that’s surprisingly easy to make.

It takes around 20 minutes to whip up, and it’s guaranteed to boost your energy levels.

The mixture of sugar and water contains the secret ingredient – sweetened condensed milk.

So, why not give this recipe a try?

You might just find your newfound love of sweets changing into an addiction.

24. Vegetarian Pho Soup

Pho is a popular Vietnamese noodle soup made with beef broth.

But if you need something meatless, this recipe has you covered.

It’s super hearty, packed full of veggies and protein, and loaded with flavor.

The beef bones provide a wonderful meaty flavor for the broth.

I recommend using a mix of beef trimmings from your butcher to get the best texture.

Be sure they’re well-trimmed so they cook evenly and don’t fall apart in your soup.

25. Soondubu Jjigae

Soondubu Jjigae is a Korean stew made with beef and vegetables.

It’s an easy dish that’s perfect for those who want to enjoy their Thanksgiving dinner without the extra work.
