There’s nothing more comforting on a chilly fall evening than a warm bowl of soup! This collection features all the best fall soup recipes to warm you up during the autumn months.
A Fall Staple
Once the weather finally starts cooling down here in AZ, I find myself craving soup all the time. It’s warm, comforting, and there are infinite types of soup to enjoy.
Fall Vegetables for Soup
Using vegetables that are in season not only ensures you’re using the freshest ingredients, but it’s also easier on the pocketbook.
Some favorite fall vegetables include broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, garlic, green beans, leeks, onions, parsnips, peas, peppers, potatoes, pumpkin & squash, and sweet potatoes.
Garden veggies whip up some of our favorites like French Onion Soup, Broccoli Soup, Pumpkin Chili, Cauliflower Soup, red pepper soup, and potato leek soup. Whether simmering on the stove or enjoying the increasing aroma from the crock pot, these meals will fill your senses and your stomach.
General Soup Tips
All of our recipes contain information that will help you create the best dish. Here are a few of the most common soup tips.
Shredded meat. Soup is already known for being a pretty simple dish to make, but to make it even easier I like to have shredded cooked chicken and cooked beef in the freezer.
Bite-size ingredients. To help the ingredients cook evenly be sure to cut the ingredients the same size. For example, the chunks of meat and pieces of potatoes should be similar in size. Also, I like to be able to have 2-3 different elements in each spoonful so I cut the sizes accordingly.
To thicken a soup you can either use flour or cornstarch. You can also use cheese or cream if it fits the recipe.
- Flour: Scoop ½ cup of the soup into a separate bowl and stir in 1 tablespoon flour. Stir until smooth and return back to the soup.
- Cornstarch: Mix 1 tablespoon cold water and 1 tablespoon cornstarch in a separate bowl. Pour into the soup and stir.
To thin out a soup, simply add more water or broth.
Freezer meal. Soups typically make a great freezer meal. There are some ingredients that are best to leave out and add toward the end, like cheese, cream, and pasta. Thaw the soup overnight in the fridge before heating.
Season Your Soup
Broth vs stock. The foundation of a good soup starts with a great-tasting broth or stock. They both come with a base of beef, chicken, or vegetable. You can also find versions to be organic, gluten-free, and vegan. So what makes them different?
- Broth is thinner, has fewer calories, and has less fat than stock.
- Stock (aka bone broth) has slightly more calories, fat, and protein, but also has significantly higher vitamins and minerals.
They can be used interchangeably so pick the one that best fits your dietary needs.
Spice. If the soup is too spicy or sour, add coconut milk or a bit of brown sugar. It will cut through the harsh flavor and add a bit of sweetness to the soup.
Fresh herbs add a lot of flavor to the soup. Keep in mind that 1 tablespoon of fresh herbs = 1 teaspoon of dried herbs. Don’t add the fresh herbs until the end of the crock pot cooking time. You can also brighten the flavor of soup with a splash of vinegar or lemon or lime juice.
Aromatics. Onion, bell pepper, celery, and garlic are some commonly used aromatics and should be activated before use. They are typically sautéed in a pan to get their flavor going, then added to the pot of soup.
Good Sides for Soup
There are many reasons to love soup and one of them is that it’s often hearty and nutritious enough that it can stand alone without any sides.
There are also a variety of delicious bread and rolls you can serve, such as:
