Homemade soup is my dinner go to. When I can’t figure out what I want to eat, I know that I have lots of easy soup recipes for dinner that I can make in about 30 minutes. I am a soup lover, I can eat it no matter the weather. One of our all time favorites is this easy lentil soup recipe. I make this at least every other month and it never goes to waste.
For me, food in bowls is pure comfort. There is something about holding a warm bowl of food, inhaling it’s goodness and leaning over it to dig in. And a good bowl of soup is like a hug for your insides.

Making easy soup recipes for dinner
Having a well stocked pantry makes it really easy to whip up a pot of soup. If you have some staples on hand, you can make a pot of homemade soup in no time.
I always keep dried pasta, lentils, split peas, dried beans of nearly every variety known to mankind, good vegetable or chicken stock, canned tomatoes and tomato paste in the pantry. Having these staples means I can make this Instant Pot black bean soup anytime I’m craving it.
Keep staples like carrots, celery, onions and garlic in the refrigerator and you’re set. With those ingredients, you can have your soup for dinner in about half an hour.
If you’re looking for fancy soup recipes, or soup recipes for a dinner party, you can find those here too! I like a pureed soup like this hearty winter vegetable soup for serving to dinner guests. It is easy, but looks fancy and like it took you the better part of the afternoon to make (but it didn’t).
