Few types of meals can conjure up the almost universally comforting appeal of soup. The first soup was cooked about 20,000 years ago, not long after the invention of clay pots and mastery of fire. Soup is an open book and can be made in an enormous combination of ways—it can be creamy and meaty or brothy and brimming with vegetables. Since soups can be found in every part of the world, they can be made with a vast array of spices and seasonings and can be made to please just about any palate. Explore these recipes for some inspiration, and maybe sprinkle in a little extra seasoning to make a pot of soup you can truly call your own.

Thai Basil Chicken Soup
We used our Thai Bird Chiles for this recipe. These are dried chiles, but you do not have to rehydrate them because they will rehydrate themselves as they cook in the soup. Typically, this process takes about 20 minutes or so, and this is about how long they will cook for in the soup, too. These chiles give the soup a nice heat, though it does still have some sweetness to it. This soup has all the usual expected flavors of Thai cuisine, so if you have been curious about giving it a try, this soup may be the right place for you to start!
