Classic Oyster Stew
There are countless versions of this simple, elegant stew. To achieve the perfect texture of just-cooked oysters, poach them in the milk until their edges begin to curl, set aside, and return them to the stew just before serving.
Turkey Noodle Soup
This savory soup takes just 35 minutes to make and is guaranteed to warm you right to your toes. Best of all, this family favorite is a great way to use up leftover holiday turkey.
Chipotle Chicken Tortilla Soup
If you like food with a little spicy heat, then this dish will have your taste buds doing the Lambada. Round out the meal with corn muffins from your grocer's bakery or servings of packaged Spanish rice.
Corn and Potato Chowder
We love this home-style recipe as is, but if you prefer a hotter bite, add extra ground red pepper or some minced seeded jalapeño pepper to our thick and hearty, corn-studded soup. The colorful, flavor-packed dish simmers for only 10 minutes.
Beef and Beer Chili
Cook a flavorful pot of chili in just 40 minutes for a quick weeknight meal or tasty game-day main dish. You can easily double the recipe and freeze extra for later.
Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
Pair the nutty flavor of the wild rice in this creamy soup with thick slices of a buttery or whole-grain artisan bread. Be sure to save a cup for tomorrow's lunch.
Quick Fall Minestrone
This easy soup brims with fresh vegetables; canned beans and orzo make it hearty and filling. Use a vegetable peeler to quickly remove the skin from the squash.
White Bean and Sausage Ragout with Tomatoes, Kale, and Zucchini
This delicious soup is so robust that no accompaniments are needed, but if you'd like to offer a side, consider a simple green salad.
Make a quick version of the classic soup for a refreshingly light supper. Toasted French bread topped with a light Boursin cheese adds great flavor to the meal and is a tasty stand-in for the standard grilled cheese sandwich.
Pork and Herbed White Beans
Although this dish takes a while to cook, the majority is hands off. You can easily prepare it over the weekend and reheat during the week. Garnish with small sage leaves, if desired.
