Now that we are finally settled in our new temporary home and the weather is feeling more like fall its time to enjoy some homemade soup. The clocks are turned back, the days are getting shorter and there is a definite crispness to the air. I love soup and I have to say these are the best fall soups and you will often find them on our menu this time of year.
Cheddar Ale Soup
This soup is so easy and delicious, perfect for a fall day.
I have an ongoing goal to eat healthier and make good food choices. It’s not always easy but my goal is to eat right 80% of the time! I have a wonderful cookbook called Eating Well in Season – the Farmers’ Market Cookbook. The recipes are divided into seasons of the year and focus on what food is fresh during each season. If you are looking for a hearty winter soup, this pork, bean and kale soup is perfect. It’s delicious and nutritious and uses foods you can find in your farmer’s market this time of year.
Amazing Turkey Soup
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holdays and one of the best things about Thanksgiving is the leftover turkey! I look forward to making this soup every year. You can also make it with leftover chicken as well.
The Soup Doctor’s Egg Drop Soup
You may have heard of the Cake Doctorbefore, a series of cookbooks where every recipe is based on a boxed cake mix. My husband is the Soup Doctor! He can take a plain package of Ramen Noodles and turn it into an amazing egg drop soup with just a few simple ingredients. Perfect for those lunch or dinners where you just want a quick, delicious meal.
Black Bean and Sausage Soup
Cool autumn days are the perfect time to enjoy a bowl of hearty black bean and sausage soup. The combination of sweet Italian turkey sausage, jalapeño peppers and fresh cilantro gives this black bean and sausage soup a distinctive flavor. If you have any leftovers they are easily reheated in the microwave or can be frozen for later use. Serve along with a leafy green salad and a loaf of bread and your have a meal!
Irish Yellow Broth
Autumn comes all too quickly. Much as I hate to see summer go the fall is one of my favorite times of year. Fall in Vermont is so enjoyable; the days are still fairly warm and sunny but the nights are cold. When there is a slight chill in the air I enjoy making simple soups for lunch. One of my favorite soups is this Irish Yellow Broth. The steel cut oats not only add nutrition but they give a creaminess to the soup. Usually I leave out the cream and the soup still tastes delicious! Next time you’re looking for a fabulous fall soup try this Irish Yellow Broth. I’ve shared the recipe several years ago but it’s worth repeating. I enjoy this soup whether it’s the beginning of fall, the middle of winter or early spring! It’s simple to make and delicious! This soup is definitely one of my top fabulous fall soups!
Chicken Pot Pie Soup
When the weather cools off in Vermont and there is a constant chill in the air my thoughts turn to simple soups I can make. This Chicken Pot Pie Soup is a favorite in our family and it is so easy to put together. If you have leftover chicken in your refrigerator this is a great way to use it up while at the same time making a delicious meal. The soup tastes just like the filling of a chicken pot pie; in fact you can also thicken the soup up a little more and top it with a crust for a delicious chicken pot pie. However you enjoy this simple soup it is bound to become a favorite in your family!
Tomato Soup From a Can
Perhaps when you think of tomato soup from a can you think of Campbell’s. Isn’t that what we grew up with? Comfort food at it’s finest is tomato soup served alongside a grilled cheese sandwich. It’s also a quick and easy meal. However, did you know you could make your own tomato soup? I have a wonderful recipe from my mother for a tomato soup that can be canned for later use. Perhaps you didn’t have a garden last year. You can also enjoy homemade tomato soup with ingredients you probably have on hand in your pantry.
Best Ever Cheeseburger Soup
Fall has come to Vermont and the weather is much cooler now, it’s the perfect weather for this best ever Cheeseburger Soup! We can’t always enjoy a yummy cheeseburger for lunch instead mix up a batch of this delicious soup. This Cheeseburger Soup is similar to potato soup but even more satisfying. I haven’t tried freezing this soup as it is usually consumed within a day or two! Pair it with a fresh salad and you have a complete dinner.
Butternut Squash Soup is another family favorite. This delicious soup has curry in it as well as leeks. I usually grow both leeks and butternut squash in my garden so this is a perfect soup to use up some of my garden harvest. In just a short amount of time you can enjoy a bowl of this soup. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
