The end of summer comes all too quickly. Much as I hate to see summer go the fall is one of my favorite times of year. Early 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 simple 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!

Yum! It is definitely soup weather here!

Interesting to add steel cut oats! I should try a version of this… I’d just take out the chicken broth and replace it with homemade veggie broth. I love that the cooler weather is here and I can start binge cooking large batches of soup! So delicious.
