As the days draw shorter, the leaves start to turn and a chill in the night air reminds us that autumn is here, which means it’s the perfect time for fall soup recipes. These delicious ideas come from our friends at Fine Dining Lovers.
Celebrate the arrival of autumn vegetables, orange pumpkins, squash, and late beans; all perfect ingredients for creating a comforting bowl of soup.
Try making velvety smooth blended soups to your desired thickness, or keep vegetables chunky inside a good broth. Experimenting with toppings can also amp up your dishes, whether it’s crunch from a selection of toasted nuts, or a creamy yogurt or melted cheese on top. Serve up warm with some toasted sourdough and good quality butter.
Make up plenty of soup per batch and freeze it in portions so you always have a homemade meal in the freezer.
We have selected five of our favorite fall soup recipes, from a velvety pumpkin soup to chunky and classic minestrone, to get you into the swing of the season. It’s time to gear up for autumn.
