Simmering Soup Warms the Soul

Wintertime Beef Soup Meal

Piping-hot bowls of Wintertime Beef Soup are always a hit at Carol T.'s home in Joplin, Missouri. Featuring chopped cabbage, the tomato-based soup is a tasty alternative to traditional chili.

Savory Pita Strips are a fun accompaniment to any soup. Submitted by Tanya B. of Newscomerstown, Ohio, the cheese-topped sticks get crunchy in the broiler.


  • Spinach salad
  • Lemon sherbet


  • To jazz up the soup a bit, use spicy vegetable juice in place of the tomato juice, or stir in a few drops of hot pepper sauce.
  • Bake a batch of Savory Pita Strips whenever you need a replacement for crackers. Keep them on hand for late-night snacking.
  • Tanya suggests serving the pita strips alongside pasta instead of heavy garlic bread.
