Shabbat Soups

Soup goes well with the spirit of Shabbat, setting the pace for a leisurely meal and family conversation around the festive table.

No-Chicken Matzo Ball Soup (Pareve, Passover)
A kosher for Passover vegetarian Matzo Ball Soup recipe

Zucchini Basil Soup (Parve)
This Zucchini Basil Soup is super delicious and healthy. And it is surprisingly easy to prepare. Just saute onions, garlic and zucchini, adding water and spices, simmer and puree. This parve Zucchini Soup can be served warm or cold, but we like it best cold for lunch.

Creamed Squash Soup (Dairy)
This Cream Squash Soup is vegan, gluten-free and delicious. The basic soup process of boil, simmer, puree is made a bit easier than usual because there are not many ingredients to chop and add. To keep this soup recipe pareve, use oil and soy milk. For a richer dairy version that could be served for a Shavuot or Hanukkah meal, use butter and...

Eggplant Soup (Dairy)
My sister-in-law served this Eggplant Soup for a Hanukkah family party, and everyone, including the children, loved it. Shavuot is around the corner, I thought this dairy soup would make a nice start to the festive holiday meal. This roasted Eggplant Soup was easy to prepare, and, once again, everyone thought it was delicious.

Cold Tomato Soup Appetizer for Shabbat Lunch (Parve)
This is a really easy, versatile soup that can be served hot or cold. I usually serve this cold for starters for a Shabbat lunch. I don't think I have ever served this soup and not been asked for the recipe!

Chicken Turkey Soup (Meat)
My kids never get tired of this Chicken Turkey Soup. They especially like it served with matzo balls. I add turkey to the soup in order to raise the soup's iron content, but the turkey also gives the soup a richer flavor.

Shabbos Chicken Noodle Soup (Meat)
Life is full of coincidences. I had been thinking that I need to find a more interesting way to make my Shabbos Chicken Soup because, even though my kids never get tired of it, my wife and I feel we need a change every so often. Then on Israeli television someone mentioned adding beef spare ribs to our traditional Jewish chicken soup, and it was...

Yam Corn Bisque (Parve, Gluten Free)
This Yam Corn Bisque, generally referred to as Orange Soup in our home, is easy to make, healthy and delicious. You can serve this parve, gluten-free soup year-round, but we especially like to have it for summer Shabbos meals when we can put fresh corn rather than frozen into it.

Wholesome Fish Soup (Parve)
I love the idea of fish soup, but it always seemed a difficult recipe to attempt. I figured I'd either hit or miss. Then my friend David called to tell me that he had just made this awesome fish soup for Shabbos which I needed to taste, photograph and put into this kosher food site for all of us to enjoy. So, without further ado, here is David's...

Easy Sweet Potato Soup (Parve)
This is one of the easiest soup recipes I know, and fortunately it is also one of my kids' favorite soups. So if you've invited guests for Shabbos who have children or you need to prepare a tasty soup but have limited energy, this is the recipe for you. Simply saute the sweet potatoes, bell pepper, onion and garlic, add broth and seasonings,...

Roasted Cauliflower Soup (Dairy)
My kids love cauliflower, and they love soup. So I thought to give cauliflower soup a try in my home. After looking at a bunch of different cauliflower soup recipes, I put together this easy, creamy, roasted version of the soup. Roasting the cauliflower first brings out its best flavor. And kids always seem to prefer smooth blended soups. And,...

The Shabbos before Christmas, freeze 4-8 cups of your Jewish chicken soup broth. Then on Christmas eve, invite your Jewish friends over for a potluck Chinese dinner. It is very easy to make Egg Drop Soup from your chicken soup stock.
