– Mom, what’s for dinner? – I hear this question daily! Half the “problem” for me is coming up with an idea… how about you? Well, today… I’m your Idea Fairy.
Since autumn is in full swing here in the Northern hemisphere, I’m sharing recipes for 7 soups, enough to last you a week. I’m starting on Sunday. Do all your shopping ahead and get to cooking.

The one and only Polish Sunday soup. I think it’s safe to say that most Poles eat chicken soup on Sundays. It’s easy and quick, allowing time spent with family and friends. Make a large batch, we’ll use leftovers on Monday.
I think it’s safe to say that if a Pole made rosół on Sunday, they’ll make tomato soup on Monday. Work is half way done. Use chicken stock from Sunday, soup done in under 15 minutes.
Let’s change it up a bit on Tuesday and make a soup that’s a bit more substantial, one for meat eaters, filling and hearty. This can be prepared in a crock pot, for those working moms and dads who don’t have a luxury of time. Prep everything the night before: brown the meat, cut up veggies. The next morning put everything in a crock pot, add water and spices and off you go. Come home just to finish it off with herbs. You. Are. Welcome!
Kapuśniak is a traditional soup made of two favorite Polish ingredients: pork and sauerkraut. It’s a bit sour but not overwhelmingly. If you’ve never had it before, you must try it! It’s not complicated either, so no excuses here 🙂
(red beet soup)
It wouldn’t be a Polish meal plan without a traditional red beet soup. This is my favorite recipe, it comes out exactly how my grandma made it. It’s creamy and slightly sweet. I serve it with a side of mashed potatoes garnished with bits of sautéed onion. It’s to die for.
(wild mushroom soup)
Mushrooms are in season here in Poland so I have to include this soup. Even tough I know it’s tough to find wild mushrooms in the US, I’ve found a way to replicate this soup from ingredients available and make it the way it suppose to taste. Do prepare your ingredients ahead of time.
Pickle soup may sound like an unusual dish to those who’ve not had much to do with Polish cuisine. I’ve served it to many Polish kitchen rookies however and it has always been a hit. A lot of its taste depends on a good pickle, so use your favorite brand and you will not be disappointed.
I’ve run out of weekdays but there are many more Polish soups that I think you should try. Please visit SOUPS section of my recipe index and browse through many more recipes.
Happy cooking and smacznego!!
