6 easy soup recipes for truck drivers
Posted: November 19, 2021
Fall’s here and you know what that means? Soup season! Bring on the hearty, steaming-hot bowls of flavor that will really make you feel like you had a good home-cooked meal. Another great thing about adding soups to your truck driver meal plan is the fact that soup recipes are easy to adjust for serving size and for swapping ingredients to your tastes. Here are some of our favorite soup recipes for truck drivers. These are all easy enough to make in a slow cooker or a single pot right in your truck.
Sweet potato soup
This soup is great if you also keep some kind of blender on your truck. Once you’re done cooking the soup, you’ll use an immersion blender or transfer the soup to your traditional blender to puree it all.
Small batch chicken noodle soup
There’s nothing better than a hot bowl of chicken noodle soup. It just feels like home which is great when you’re on the road and looking for some comfort. This recipe is perfectly sized for one or two serving. Simplify this recipe even more by using leftover shredded chicken.
Easy lasagna soup
If you’re looking for a hearty soup that will certainly fill you up, you’ll love this easy lasagna soup. The original recipe yields six servings, but you can easily reduce your ingredients by half or a third. We recommend you brown your meat ahead of time so all you need to do is throw everything into the pot when you’re ready to cook.
Single serving tortilla soup
This tortilla soup is perfect for nights when you’re craving something a little more spicy. Enjoy this soup with some toppings such as diced avocado, fresh cilantro, or a little queso fresco.
Ol’ fashioned vegetable soup
The best thing about vegetable soup is that the possibilities are endless! You can use any vegetables you want or switch it up every time you make it for more variety.
Vegetarian mushroom barley soup
This mushroom barley soup gives you all the meaty vibes, but all the benefits of a vegetarian dish. It’s a wholesome, healthy soup that will definitely be filling. Halve or third the recipe so you don’t end up with a lot of leftovers.
If you’re incorporating more soups into your meal planning this fall and winter but feel like you’re too limited in time and space, another great option is to make your soups at home. Store the soup in a Ziplock bag (double bag it just in case of leaks) and simply reheat on the day you want to eat it. Laying the Ziplock bags flat in the fridge takes up less space. Soup recipes also freeze really well, so you can make multiple servings at home, take some with you and save the rest for a trip in the future.
