That sums it up.
Swedish Blueberry Soup (Blåbärssoppa)

If you’re a cauliflower fan, you would love this soup for cold weather; if not, it would change your mind. I know mine did.
Creamy and buttery — hard to stop after a bowl, for sure.
German Goulash Soup (Gulaschsuppe)
Same spice as the stew, but lighter.
Not to worry though, it doesn’t mean this soup is less filling. It just means less cooking and waiting time — but with the same delightful flavor.
Hard to say ‘no’ to this one. It’s vegetarian; it’s delicious, and it’s actually great the whole year-round.
The nuttiness from the chickpeas, plus the freshness of the herb and lemon juice — you will surely be planning for the next time you will cook it as you reach for that second serving!

The addition of chorizo at the end elevates the soup’s flavor, smokiness, and comfort in a bowl.
If you’ve never tried celeriac in a soup before, start with this classic dish from Turkey.
Please do not skip the garlic and dried mint garnish — it brings this delicious winter soup to an entirely new level!
