Warm Up With These Fustini-fied Slurps

Welcome to Fustini's

February 2021

Just In...

When the temps drop, we want to warm up. While soups can be delightful any time of the year, they are particularly crave-worthy during these cold months. From light chicken broths to hearty clam chowders, soups are an easy go-to for lunch or dinner.

Often with soups, we can easily add flavor by sprinkling in some dried or fresh herbs. But did you know you can also add extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar to your soup to amp up the flavor?

To help us all warm up a bit this winter, this week we’re exploring some of our favorite soup recipes. From bisques to stews to chowders and broths, we’ve got recipes for all. Break out your large stockpot and see what warming creations you can cook up this season.

Enjoy, stay safe and eat well.


Soup-er Recipes

Whether you enjoy bisques, broths, chowders or creams, there is something warm and delicious for you.
