- Fruits: apples, pears, pomegranates, cranberries
- Cheeses: goat, feta, gorgonzola

How do you make an autumn vegetable soup?
While there are an infinite number of variations, the most basic fall vegetable soup will typically follow the same main steps:
Step 1. Saute your aromatics (ex: onions, garlic, etc.) and spices.
Step 2. Saute or roast your heartier vegetables to soften them and bring out more flavor.
Step 3. Add broth or liquid base and continue simmering vegetables.
Step 4. Add garnishes and toppings, or side items like toast.
Optional. For a creamier soup, you could add cream, incorporate a cream substitute, or blend the cooked ingredients between steps 3 and 4.
As you’ll discover with the fall soup recipes below, there are so many ways to elevate your soup by using different cooking techniques and an endless combination of ingredients you can use. Let’s get to the delicious stuff!
