Soup: perfect comfort for a cold day

The official start of winter is still a couple weeks away, but the cold weather is here. FoodPair's national correspondents reported snow flakes in New Jersey on Thanksgiving and temperatures dipping into the 30s in San Francisco (gasp!).

There's no better way to fight off the cold than with a piping hot bowl of soup. But, you may ask, is soup a meal? Well, did you crumble crackers into it? Was it a hearty soup, like mushroom barley, or a clear soup, like consomme? Seinfeld already tried to tackle that thorny question, so we'll leave the answer to the experts and to you. For the record, we'd happily trade our tasty bowl of soup for your Armani suit, so feel free to contact us with any offers.

To find you the best soup recipes for these wintry days, we powered up the FoodPair search engine and found the tastiest and easiest soup recipes on the planet
. In case you're looking for a multi-course soup tasting we even found a great blueberry dessert soup.
