10 Comfort Soups for Fall


As the days grow shorter and cooler, many changes naturally take place — our wardrobe gets cozier, our backyard starts to look more colorful, and our meals become more comforting. Everyone loves a good soup to pair with the season, and the 10 I'm sharing today bring familiarity with a twist. It's finally time to break out the soup pots and enjoy a bowl or two to help curb that evening chill in the air.

  1. Pumpkins will soon be popping up in all the markets, the perfect opportunity for some Spanish pumpkin and chickpea stew.
  2. Being Hungarian myself, this Hungarian mushroom soup reminds me of my grandmother's recipe. Hungarian paprika is a must!
  3. Broccoli is a fall crop, which makes it great for a bowl or two of broccoli, coconut and chili soup.
  4. It's not a proper fall-recipe roundup if you don't include a chicken noodle soup. This variation — Thai style chicken noodle soup — is grandma approved.
  5. Add crusty bread and a couple of dashes of your favorite hot sauce to create a complete meal with this hearty lentil and butternut squash soup.
  6. Creamy tomato and basil soup with a grilled cheese and a cozy sweater is about as fall as it gets.
  7. For game day or an easy weeknight meal: slow cooker chili. Assemble it the morning of or the night before, throw it in the slow cooker, and it is ready when you are.
  8. Rustic French onion soup — because not many things are more comforting, and who doesn't love gooey melted Gruyère cheese?
  9. If you've never made Mexican pozole, you need to add this to your fall to-do list. Leftovers can be served over tortillas for a second meal. You'll wonder why you haven't made this in the past.
  10. This chunky mushroom, lentil and sage soup takes only 40 minutes to make, and it's straight-up earthy goodness.
