11 Soups for Fall

Gone are the summer days where you want something light and fresh. Fall is upon us, and we quickly turn to those foods that will just comfort the heck out of ya. Know what I mean?

Soup is one of those comfort foods that I can’t seem to get enough of when the autumn chill hits the air. Here’s the thing, though... When eating soup in the fall, I really want a soup screams COZY! HEARTY! WARMING! Is that too much to ask?

I’m here to tell you that No! It’s not! There are plenty of soups that fit the bill, and I’m here to give you just a few favorites.

  • Corn Chowder

    October Creative

    This is a fantastic soup to make at the turning of the seasons because it’s best with fresh corn. If you need to substitute frozen or canned corn, go ahead! And, if you want to make it vegetarian, swap out the bacon for butter.

  • Kale and Roasted Vegetable Soup

    My family can’t get enough of this soup. We eat it over and over again during the colder months. It makes enough to feed an army, but if there happens to be leftovers (and that’s a big IF), it keeps well for lunch the next day!

  • French Onion Soup

    This is another classic soup that will send shivers of happiness down your spine because it’s just that good. Not only will it warm you up from head-to-toe, but any soup served with a slice of crusty, cheesy bread on top is a giant winner in my book!

  • Chicken Mulligatawny Soup

    Can you guess the secret ingredient in this one-pot soup? APPLES! That’s right, apples! It also boasts a creamy texture with a bold curry flavor that brings everything together.

  • Clam Chowder with Corn

    Classic clam chowder is simply the best. Corn isn’t typically found in clam chowder, but we added it in because we like to break the rules sometimes – no regrets!

  • Bean and Bacon Soup

    This soup takes some time because we use dry beans, but if you need to, feel free to use canned beans instead. Either way, the whole family is going to go crazy of this soup. Promise.

  • Pressure Cooker Taco Soup

    Coco Morante

    Give your Taco Tuesdays a face lift by making taco soup instead! You still get that zesty taco flavor in every bite and it’ll be a nice change from the regular taco routine. Added bonus: It’s freezer-friendly!

  • Minestrone Soup

    The best thing about minestrone is that you use whatever you have on hand. Whatever you put in it is totally up to you! It’s the perfect soup to clear out your fridge.

    Want to know just how easy this is to make? Simply throw the chicken, rice, and veggies together in a pot and simmer until they’re done. It’s also ready in under an hour. It’ll give you a rich flavor without hovering over the stove all day long.

  • Baked Potato Soup

    Elise Bauer

    It’s like a hearty baked potato got a soup makeover! We didn’t just add potatoes to a soup and call it good... No, we BAKED the potatoes first and then made a soup out of them. Then we added in your favorite toppings of crumbled bacon, cheddar cheese, sour cream, and chives, and this soup was born!

  • Easy Tomato Soup
