This week’s episode is brought to you by Not Just, Bada Bean Bada Boom & KiwiCo
Soup szn is upon us, and we start our musings on soup with the big question: Is soup even dinner? We believe that it can be, but not without all the right components: from a rich broth and variety of hearty elements, to fantastic toppings, and yes, sometimes filling sides. This may sound like a lot of work, but it truly doesn’t have to be. And when it call comes together easily, you can’t get a more delicious and satisfying cold-weather dinner.

Soup Szn Is Here
We admit it: we dive into soups with a little trepidation. The truth is that soup can be fussy. It can take a lot of time and still not satisfy as dinner on its own. But before you write soup off — or limit it to an occasional indulgence — we’ve got hot tips on how to keep soup simple and filling, even for weeknight cooking.
From what to serve with soup to how to load it up, we’ve got your primer on making soup szn work for you.
