2. Black Garlic and Lentil Soup

For Bar Tartine in San Francisco, chef Nick Balla created this smoky, earthy soup as a tribute to his Hungarian-America father. Dried chiles, paprika sausage, hot paprika, and black garlic--regular garlic roasted for days until it turns sweet and jet black, with a licorice-like flavor--give the soup a rounded spiciness.

6. Lemony Lentil Soup

In this simple soup recipe, you'll simmer everyday ingredients like carrots, onion, garlic, and spices with red lentils, which are the perfect soup legume since they break down when heated. Instead of puréeing the entire soup into oblivion, you'll only blend half the batch to retain some texture. Then, you'll top the whole thing with crispy, roasted kale leaves for a modern garnish. For a classic soup-and-sandwich combo, serve a bowl of this with a whole-grain grilled cheese.
