  • Creamy Celery Soup

    16 Five-Star Soup Recipes Our Readers Love (9)

    "This is ridiculously good. When I was younger, my guilty pleasure was canned cream of celery soup. This recipe exceeded expectations. I puréed in a blender to get it velvety smooth - the way I like it. Afterwards I stirred in a good amount of 35% cream, then added the braised celery. Delicious!" —Mattedcat

  • White Bean and Ham Soup

    16 Five-Star Soup Recipes Our Readers Love (13)

    "This is, quite literally, the best soup I’ve ever made. I’ve used this recipe as written (using shanks unless I can’t find them, and then I’ll use hocks and throw in some diced ham at the end) for years and it’s never not been delicious! I just wish I had a bigger pot so that I could make a double batch! Served with crusty bread for dipping, this is the perfect cold-weather dinner." —Sandra
