I just love soups in the winter. My husband prefers ones with lots of things in them so more like a stew.

Pea and ham
Minestrone
Lamb shank and chickpeas with Moroccan spices
Lentil, broad bean and rice with lots of spices


I prefer the creamier ones
Curried lentils
And even just plain "cream of" different Vegs. I don't use cream usually, just a handful of rice or a potato or even coconut cream seems to make them creamy enough

And for when sick, a very gingery chicken soup with broth. Delicious.

Chicken and dumplings
Split pea
Potato
Beef stew
Northern style chili
Creamy butternut (or other winter squash)

Anything thick or creamy will usually stick with you pretty well.

Many good ideas...

If it's winter, only a few vegetables are still standing. So I ll go with a "butternut squash Velouté".

I boil the squash in water with a potato and an onion stuck with a clove.
The potato is for its effect on the smoothness of the soup when mixing.
The onion is for the taste.

I drain it in a strainer, while keeping one big glass of the boiled water.
Then everything goes in a blender. Only a blender can give it a smooth texture.

I did put butternut squash because I don't know how to say Potiron in english.

I make a very similar soup. Sometimes we add a dollop of sour cream at serving time and if you can get fresh chives or parsley a pinch of them finely chopped is also a good accent.

This freshness at the end looks very good !
