A Fall Staple

When I think about things that I love about fall, the first things that come to mind are sweaters, pumpkin recipes, and SOUP!

Once the weather finally starts cooling down here in AZ, I find myself craving soup all the time. It’s warm, comforting, and there’s 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, 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 stomachs.

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 c of the soup into a separate bowl stir in 1 tbsp flour. Stir until smooth and return back to the soup
  • Cornstarch: Mix 1 tbsp cold water and 1 tbsp 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 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.
  • 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 sweeteners to the soup. 
  • Fresh Herbs add a lot of bright flavor to the soup. Keep in mind that 1 tablespoon of fresh herbs = 1 teaspoon of dried herbs and 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, garlic are some commonly used aromatics and should be activated before using. They are typically sauteed 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.

With that said, some side dishes that go well with soup include an easy salad like this Wedge Salad or Caesar Salad.

Sandwiches are another great side dish. Try classic Grilled Cheese Sandwich or Monte Cristo Sandwich.

There also a variety of delicious breads and rolls you can serve, such as:
