Hearty Peasants Soup

When it comes to inner recipes I love the ones that are filling and nutritious while also being delicious. Let’s be honest, eating a sad salad is not exacting, but eating a warm bowl of soup packed with veggies? That’s delicious. 

This hearty peasant soup is exactly that. It’s incredibly filling and nutritious while also being affordable and quick and easy to make. The whole family loves it!

It’s also a really versatile dish so I usually play with what I have around. Have chicken instead of turkey? Just swap it or just change it altogether for ground beef. Have a couple carrots that have seen better days? Mix them in. Don’t like cheese? Just omit it. 

That versatility not only helps you use everything that’s in the pantry and fridge but it’s also a fun way to give the soup a different flair and flavor every time.

What to serve with peasant soup

Most of the time I serve this soup as is. But on those nights when I’m craving something extra I serve it with: 

  • A crusty piece of bread for dipping. Trust me when I say tis is so delicious!
  • Some easy garden salad on the side to amp up the veggies
  • Cornbread! I’m not sure if I’m the only one but every time I eat a soup with beans I just crave some hearty cornbread too

Can you freeze this peasant soup?

Yes! I usually make a large batch and freeze half before adding the veggies. Once I’m ready to eat I transfer to the freezer to a big pot and add the veggies at the last minute. I feel that’s the best way to preserve the spinach texture

  • Patty

    I’m a big soup eater as the temperatures drop. To me Peasant Soup was always just made with whatever was leftover at the end of the week. It all just went into the pot and soup was made. Nothing goes to waste!

    • Brandy

      I like to have a starting point. Once I have the basic flavor down I can then feel free to toss in a variety of vegetables, potatoes or things from the fridge. Certainly versatile!
