Football’s big day is almost here! If you’re still planning out your Super Bowl spread for Sunday, consider one of these crowd-pleasing soups. This is not only an inexpensive and easy way to feed all of your guests, but most of these soups can be made ahead and customized with a fun spread of toppings. Whether the Patriots or the Rams win this year, at least these hearty winter soups will leave everyone happy.
Clam Chowder is not your typical game-day food, but we promise your guests will not be complaining when you hand them a bowl of this creamy, bacon and clam-studded stew from Martha Stewart. Plus, it’s very on-theme if you’re a New England Patriots household! Serve this chowder with crusty bread, hot sauce and chopped parsley and bright green celery leaves.
Don’t let the football players get all the workout in this Sunday. You can too with our fat flushing soup. Enjoy this completely new Thai spin on our ever-popular Fat Flush Soup. This soup has a creamy coconut milk base (which has been proven to help with weight loss) and is scented with turmeric, lime juice, fish sauce, garlic and a healthy dose of fresh ginger. The garlic and ginger speed up your metabolism while the ground turmeric calms any inflammation. The bulk of the soup comes from lean chicken breasts that are simmered in coconut milk until tender and juicy, plus a generous amount of fat-flushing vegetables.
Few foods do a better job of warming you to your core than a hearty lentil soup. Lentils are a great ingredient for entertaining: They’re healthy, they will leave your guests feeling full, but not weighed down, and they’re affordable and easy to cook. In this lentil soup, I add toasty Indian spices, creamy GOYA coconut milk, plus kale and sweet potato for extra nutritional oomph. This is a great option if you have some vegan game day guests.
Forget the 7 layer dip and make THIS special soup instead. This recipe from the legendary Whistle Stop Tea Room in Tomball, Texas will add a bit of kick to the big game! The secret? A splash of red wine for depth and richness.
This slow-cooker chili from Bon Appétit Magazine gets all of its flavor from the dried chilies, so find the freshest ones you can get your hands on. Don’t be intimidated by this recipe: It seems like a lot of work up front, but once you get it cooking in the slow-cooker, it’s completely hands-off. Make the chili in advance and bring it to a viewing party – just don’t forget the toppings!
