I don't know about you, but as soon as temperatures drop below 50, my soup cravings start, but I can never seem to find enough soup recipes to last me through the winter. No matter what it's made of, soup warms me up in a way that no other food or drink can, but the canned versions tend to be lacking in both the nutrition and the flavor departments. 

To solve this ever present problem of tasteless canned soup, here are 17 soup recipes to keep your belly warm until spring break.

1. Anti-inflammatory Broccoli Soup

After a month's worth of holiday indulgences, everyone is looking to get back on track in January. This easy slow cooker soup is just the recipe. It's both tasty and good for you. Ginger helps with digestion and contributes a spicy bite. Turmeric has a wide variety of health benefits and adds that awesome orange color. 

2. Lasagna Soup

Lasagna is my favorite Italian dish, so it's no surprise that I fell in love with this recipe that turns it into a thick, hearty soup. It tastes just like lasagna, but you can make it without all the added stress of carefully constructing each delicate layer.

5. Chili

Chili is the kind of meal that will taste delicious and fill you up no matter the ingredients you decide to throw in. Every winter, I make venison chili with my dad and I'm always amazed at the final product that results from his seemingly random addition of ingredients. Yes, you guessed it, he is one of those people who claims dark chocolate is his "secret ingredient."

11. Soba Miso Soup

Everyone raves about the health benefits of miso soup, but I often find it lacking in satisfaction power. I have a whole bowl and still feel hungry. That is, until I found this recipe.

It starts with that same nourishing miso soup base, but then adds a variety of heathy toppings to create a well-rounded meal. The possibilities are endless, but this recipe suggests buckwheat soba, kale, mushrooms, carrots, and a soft boiled egg. Yum, I know.

12. Chicken Gnocchi Soup

I first encountered creamy, stick-to-your-stomach chicken gnocchi soup at Olive Garden. After I first tried it, I insisted that my family go to Olive Garden every time we ate out. Since then, I have developed a more sophisticated palate, but I still find myself craving it every once and a while.
