There is nothing better for a rainy day or a cold fall or winter night than soup recipes that warm your body and soul. These recipes for soups cover a myriad of ethnic influences and take you on a virtual trip around the world.
Stop first in Mexico, and enjoy Albondigas Soup made with pork meatballs in a light broth base. Head next to France for cozy, comforting Potato Leek Soup and French Onion Soup topped with crusty bread and a sprinkling of cheese. Of course, Italy cannot be forgotten with its Pasta e Fagioli or its Ribollita, which can easily be made into a hearty vegetarian soup if you leave out the hot Italian sausage.
