    What goes into a fall-inspired soup?

    There are quite a few autumn ingredients that shine during this year-end season that you can use to create a delicious fall soup bowl:

      • Squashes: butternut, acorn, pumpkin
      • Vegetables: brussels sprouts, beets, carrots, sweet potato
      • Fruits: apples, pears, pomegranates, cranberries
      • Cheeses: goat, feta, gorgonzola
      • Nuts and seeds: pumpkin, sunflower, walnuts pecans, almonds

    Of course, you aren’t just limited to these ingredients. The beauty with a fall soup, or soup in any season, is that you can often toss in whatever strikes your tastebuds’ fancy for a whole array of fall soup ideas.

    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!
