    I think the secret to a good soup is to cook it with a parmesan rind. Giada’s recipe: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/giada-de-laurentiis/winter-minestrone-recipe/index.html

    try any ribollita soup – it is my absolute favorite winter soup recipe! best part is it actually gets better as the days go by, and you can always put it back in the pot and add different veggies to spice it up later in the week!

    highly recommend putting a rind of parmesan in, and spooning the soup over chunks of toasted baguettes to serve!

    My favorite soup is Cream of Tomato from the wonderful Smitten Kitchen: http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2006/11/come-on-thunder/

    Or, if I’m lazier, I chop up onion, garlic, carrots, celery, and whatever veggies I have on hand, sautee in olive oil for maybe 10 minutes, add some broth (I use chicken), cook another 15-20 minutes, add herbs or other seasonings and there you have it. Simple and very tasty!

    I have had great success improvising vegetable soups with whatever is in season or on hand. The secret is in adding a bit of crushed red pepper flakes to the onion and garlic that get sauteed in olive oil at the beginning, and then also adding parmesan rind along with the stock. Then just add harder veggies first and simmer, adding leafy and soft veggies closer to finish time.

    Oh wow, I love that bird necklace. I have a serious love of Zuni NM turquoise bird necklaces, always looking for the next one to catch my eye.

    I kind of don’t like minestorne/fagiol/tomatoy vegetable soups..they just kind of taste overcooked to me.

    But! There are many other great veg soups out there – two of my current favorites:

    Door 16′s vegan chili is amazing

    Love and Olive Oil’s roasted garlic and parsnip soup is really different, a little parsnip-spicy – perfect with some reeealllly good bread.

    If you’re a meat-eater, a lovely pork posole (slow cooked pork shoulder, awesome) with avocado, thinly sliced radish, mango, tortilla chips, yum. Or–this really creamy chicken vegetable soup that uses cauliflower, yogurt and miso to make it like the creamy goodness in a chicken pot pie but exceedingly good for you (in my evernote, should be able to get there without logging in).
