Hugh Forte /

This soup is vegetarian, but still hefty enough to keep a meat-eater happy. Get the recipe.

Chewy rice cakes (which you can find in the freezer section of Korean or Asian groceries) are pretty much always the most delicious part of whatever dish they're in. That definitely applies here. Get the recipe.

26. Tuscan Kale, White Bean & Bread Soup

Aubrey Jenkins /

That's right, toast IN the soup. Can you deal? This includes a smart recipe for stock made from stuff you'd otherwise throw out — onion skins and parmesan rinds — but regular chicken broth would be equally delicious. Get the recipe.

Nicole Franzen /
