There’s no end to the good things to say about soup. It’s nutritious. It’s inexpensive. It’s always delicious, even the simplest kind. It’s even better the next day. It doesn’t require any special culinary skill. It makes you feel better when you’re sick. It’s infinitely flexible: Don’t like something listed in a recipe? Skip it, or use something else. It makes the house smell great. It’s the ultimate comfort food. It’s homey, real – the opposite of pretentious. It’s the perfect supper on a cold winter night.
