These easy German soup recipes ("Suppen") will show you how to make soup with that traditional German taste. As well, these are methods that can be used to make almost any soup.
A staple in our house as I was growing up was soup. Not just any soup, but the kind Germans call "Eintopf" meaning a "one-pot" meal. For us, it was a very delicious and normal meal. Quick soup recipes is what it was for Mutti.
Once I was married, I realized why my Mutti made soup so often.
It was easy to make, easy to clean up after, and very economical.
The great thing was that there were so many, many different types to choose from.
Some were almost all vegetable, others more like a meaty stew.
Many of the recipes given below are easy versions of traditional soups. They use what you probably already have in your fridge or freezer, some water, and spices. That's it! Included are hints to make some of these quick recipes even quicker.

Anne says, "Just made this last week for my Birthday. I usually add walnut pieces or almond slivers. Can't believe it looks exactly the same as my Mama taught me some 40 years ago, the only thing what we did different, we use a fork to make the ridges in the apples. But they do open up better the way you do it with the knife. And you are right, this recipe never fails :)"
