10 Soups to Add to Your Fall Recipe List

In the fall, when the temperature starts to plummet and the tip of your nose turns red when you’re outdoors for a bit too long, you know it’s time to break out the soup pot and ladle. Here are 10 soups and stews that are good for both body and soul, and a must to add to your autumn repertoire.

1. Kitchen Sink Green Vegetable Soup

Spinach, peas and cabbage bring a nice green hue to this soup. Any other green vegetable can yield the same result, so just take what’s in the fridge! This is the perfect soup to help face the first frost of the season.

2. Cream of Cauliflower Soup

Four ingredients are all you need to make this soup starring cauliflower. Simply cook it in a pot with onion and chicken broth. Once puréed, just season it with salt. All that’s left is to dig in.

3. Cream of Carrot Soup with Oyster Mushrooms and Tarragon

When one thinks of autumn, carrots always come to mind. In a soup, the root vegetable is sufficient on its own, but by adding the likes of oyster mushrooms and tarragon, it is significantly improved. The trio comes together beautifully in this orange soup, with a mild taste and a silky texture.

4. Garbure Soup

Garbure is a dish originating from Gascony, France. It’s normally prepared from various vegetables, like carrots, rutabaga and Savoy cabbage, as well as meat (in this instance, duck confit). Let it simmer for a good hour so that the flavours meld well.

5. St-Germain Soup (Fresh Pea Soup)

This simple, traditional French soup is made with peas and lettuce. Once the soup is cooked, top it with homemade croutons made from fresh bread. It’s a tasty starter that can be transformed into a complete dish by simply adding some sausage.

6. Curried Squash Soup

Fall cooking wouldn’t be the same without squash. In this recipe, you can use either buttercup or butternut, which is then cut into pieces and cooked with onion and garlic. The trick to spicing up the soup? Add curry powder and fresh ginger.

7. Sweet Potato and Roasted Onion Soup

This is the perfect seasonal soup, with a creamy consistency. Sweet potato paired with pancetta adds texture. As a garnish, roasted pecans, sour cream and chives make the soup even more indulgent.

8. Potato and Onion Soup Au Gratin

This hearty and generous soup is ideal for those rainy autumn days. The saltiness of the bacon and the freshness of the chives harmonize perfectly with the gooey, melty cheese.

9. Cream of Celery Soup with Walnuts and Blue Cheese

This is a comforting recipe when the weather isn’t on your side. Leek and apple enhance the taste of celery, and you’ve got a complete soup with a great texture, thanks to the addition of walnuts and blue cheese upon serving.

10. Yellow Bell Pepper Soup

Long live easy-to-make fall soups! We adore this recipe, which combines the sweetness of yellow pepper and potatoes with the strength of smoked paprika. It’s fresh, tasty and absolutely colourful.
