Soups perfect for a Springfield, IL winter

soups for the winter

Transitioning from warm summer days to the cold of winter is always tough, but thankfully there are ways to make it a little bit better. Eating warm meals such as soups is one time-tested way to beat the cold and enjoy a winter day. Here are some of our favorite soups for combating the cold on those frosty winter days in Springfield, IL.

chicken noodle soup

Chicken Noodle

It’s hard to make a soup list without having a chicken noodle in there somewhere. When it comes to warming your belly on a cold day, the hot chicken broth and large chunks of noodles, chicken, and vegetables make this the perfect companion to a cold day.

new england clam chowder


Whether you’re making corn chowder or clam chowder, this creamy soup is a fantastic way to warm up in the winter. It’s nice and hearty and is filled with ingredients that are great for the cold.

tortilla soup

Tortilla Soup

When it’s cold outside, there’s nothing better than spicy food. Just having something spicy in your mouth seems to warm you up almost instantly. Try a good spicy tortilla soup next time you’re trying to beat the cold. Posole is another similar soup that works well for warming up.

butternut squash soup

Butternut Squash

Why not add a little bit of seasonal flair to your meal while you’re trying to warm yourself up? Butternut squash soup is a great soup for the fall and winter. It’s essentially a cream of butternut squash that you can flavor however you like, and it’s one of the most comforting soups.

pumpkin soup

Pumpkin Soup

Pumpkins find their way into just about everything during the fall, but we forget about them for the rest of the year. This doesn’t have to be the case. If you’re looking for a solid new soup to try, make a pumpkin soup. It’s similar to butternut squash soup and is perfect for cold days.

french onion soup

French Onion

It doesn’t get any better than french onion soup. The broth is insanely flavorful, and the melted cheese and toasted bread compliment the soup perfectly.

split pea soup

Split Pea Soup

Split pea soup is another good choice for cold days. Ham, peas, and plenty of time cooking fill this soup with tons of great flavors.

If you want to beat the cold without cooking for yourself, come on down to Loukinens’ on Fourth in Springfield, IL for a delicious hot meal.
