There’s something magical about a good bowl of soup. It doesn’t matter if it’s the simmer-all-day kind or the one that I throw in the Instant Pot, soup just has this warming nature that really invites me in. No matter what time of year it is, soup is always comforting because it can be made with a variety of ingredients. It could be light and fresh, filled with summery produce like peas and tomatoes, or rich and hearty, thick with beans or finished with Greek yogurt.
