A Fall Staple WE LOVE

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

Why we love Fall Soups:

  • COMFORT. Warm soups are the epitome of comfort food when the weather starts to cool down in the fall.
  • SEASONAL INGREDIENTS. They are full of our favorite seasonal veggies like: broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, garlic, green beans, leeks, onions, parsnips, peas, peppers, potatoes, pumpkin & squash, and sweet potatoes.
  • SLOW COOKER. Most can be thrown in the crockpot which makes for an easy meal on a busy, fall day.
  • GREAT FOR PARTIES. Many parties call for soups, chilis and cornbread, so these are perfect for all the upcoming fall get togethers.

Our FAV Fall Soups include: Chili, French Onion Soup, Chicken Noodle Soup, Cauliflower Soup, Broccoli Soup and more (see all our favs below).

Soup MUST-KNOWS

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.

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 to add to the taste.

FALL 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. 
  • To thicken a soup you can either use flour or cornstarch. You can also use cheese or cream (or even sour 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.

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 a classic Grilled Cheese Sandwich or Monte Cristo Sandwich.
