These easy German homemade soup recipes, aka Suppen, will help you make soup with that traditional German taste. It's what I grew up with. Not just any soup, but the kind Germans call Eintopf or one-pot meal. And, a delicious meal it was for us. Quick soup recipes is what it was for Mutti. Mutti taught me so much ... such as her lentil soup, one of my absolute favorites.
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. Some were almost all vegetable, others more like a meaty stew.
Many of my soups now use what you probably already have in your fridge or freezer, some water, and spices. I keep my pantry well stocked so I can make a soup at any time, especially when I'm busy.
