21 Fall and Winter Soup and Stew Meal Prep Recipes
There is something so perfect about a warm bowl of soup or stew in the late months of the year. Even in California, as the days start to wane and the breeze cools, we’re dreaming of hearty bowls of goodness throughout the day. And did you know that you can meal prep soup? As long as you have containers that are reliable enough for transporting liquids, these soul-warming favorites can be taken off the special occasion shelf and added to your regular meal prep rotation. We ladled our way through the internet to find 15 fall and winter soup and stew meal prep recipes, and we hope you love them as much as we do!
These days, soups and stews are no longer just depressingly watery Cream of Mushroom or what-is-that-floating-chunk Minestrone. We wanted to make sure to bring you a few classics, of course, but mostly elevated soup and stew recipes. Not because there’s anything wrong with Cream of Broccoli or Chicken Noodle, but because we know you want more than that. You’re here to get hours back in your days with meal prepping, but we know you want it to be delicious and interesting, too. We tried to offer a range of prep methods (from slow cooker to spiralized) and to make sure there’s an option for any diet, so there’s something for everyone in this list!
We know you’re already excited and ready to start enjoying these soups, but one more thing! Soups stand up very well to freezing, so consider making these in large batches and saving extra servings for later— up to three months! A freezer full of 15 different kinds of soup, all ready whenever you are throughout the winter? Yes, please! So say goodbye to the mid-week lunch and dinner blues. And speaking of lunch, in case you also work in an office that sometimes feels closer to the Arctic tundra than a downtown loft— these 15 fall and winter soup and stew meal prep recipes are here to help there, too
