Celebrity Soup Recipes from Emeril Lagasse, Melissa d'Arabian, and Chefs Du Jour in The Saturday Evening Post

This time of year, I crave warm soup. These recipes fill that bill. Remember to make all gluten-free adjustments as necessary.



Who doesn’t crave a warm bowl of soup on a blustery winter day? In the January/February issue of The Saturday Evening Post—now available online and on newsstands——celebrity chefs Emeril Lagasse, Melissa d’Arabian, Terry Walters, and more share their coveted soup recipes and what makes their creations so special.

Emeril Lagasse’s on His New Style Caldo Verde
·         “If I had to choose one dish to represent my childhood, it would be this. I call this version ‘new-style’ because the kale is cut into thin strips and is cooked only until crisp-tender, which differs from the more traditional version. Ines, my Portuguese friend back home, would be proud. Serve this with crusty bread alongside.”

Melissa d’Arabian on Her Rich Roasted Tomato Soup
·         “A perfect complement to a grilled cheese or simply as a lovely start to any dinner, this homey and comforting soup highlights the concentrated and wonderfully sweet flavor achieved by roasting tomatoes—and feel free to use tomatoes that are past their prime for eating raw; they’ll be perfect in this preparation. I like to load up when the tomatoes are on sale, roast them, transfer to a freezer bag, and use year-round for my soup cravings.”

Terry Walters on Her Sweet Potato, Corn, and Kale Chowder
·         “When I prepare dinner, I try to make sure there’s something for everyone. This chowder accomplishes that in one pot and is a colorful variation on an old favorite. It cooks up quickly and provides a balanced meal, rich in nutrients, all in one satisfying bowl.”
